CAD tools are increasing their expressive and geometric power to enable a design process in which the computer model can be used throughout the whole design process for realizing the design. Such a process, in which other media such as physical scale models or drawings are no longer required by necessity to facilitate the design process, can be considered a digital design process. Rather than proposing that such a process is ideal ? drawings and scale models should not be discarded ? we feel tha

There is no right way to learn but developing an active approach will ensure that you are open to new ideas.
