    Abstract

    Synthetic environment equipped with user interfaces intuitive for direct 3D shape modification by non-designer stake-holders was proposed as a collaboration tool for design concept communication in dynamic prototyping of product design in early stages of the design process. After a survey of 3D user interaction techniques for SE, a simple user interface with hierarchical visual menu was proposed and a proof-of-concept implementation of it was tested to be intuitive with experiment, which serves as a base for further study to verify the hypothetical benefits of SE aided dynamic prototyping in terms of communication efficiency and accuracy.
