Abstract

This paper reports on an unusual dialogue between two designers using Rapid Prototyping (RP) technology, one from the domain of aerospace, and the other from fashion design. Both designers saw the opportunities to improve the design process through RP, while identifying challenges in persuading people to change current practice. The immediacy of interaction with physical objects affords better design communication, and decisions can be revised before significant resources are committed. Both designers were struck by the similarities in the challenges and potential across both domains.
