The newly updated guide to design process modeling
Designing with Models, Third Edition is the revised,
step-by-step guide to basic and advanced design process modeling.
This comprehensive text explains the process from start to finish,
and has been expanded to include up-to-date information on digital
modeling programs and rapid prototyping processes. The impact of
this new wave of 3D modeling technology is examined through
interviews and numerous examples from renowned architects. Along
with many new student projects, this new Third Edition features
information on cutting-edge digital imaging equipment and design
software, as well as many new process models from celebrated
Architect Criss Mills acquaints architecture and design
professionals with essential modeling terms, design processes,
equipment, materials, and construction methods. Fully updated with
nearly 200 new photos and twenty-six new projects from students and
firms, Designing with Models, Third Edition walks readers through
the basics of:
Material and tool selection
Exploring design processes and alternatives
Modifying design work directly on the model
Developing design work through modeling scale
Offering increased emphasis on transitioning from hand craft to
digital craft, this thorough Third Edition also provides
easy-to-follow guidelines for modeling with advanced tools and
materials, demonstrating how to:
Master the modeling of curvilinear components with planar
material and casting techniques
Explore ideas with mixed media, such as wood, found objects,
metal rods and screens, clay, and Plexiglas
Work backwards from model information to produce 2D plan,
section, and elevation drawings
Record and communicate 3D design work
Begin exploring the safe and effective use of power tools, such
as belt sanders, table saws, drills, band saws, and welding
