2d vs-3d-concept-design-pros-and-cons

  1. 1. Digitalising yourconcept development:2D vs 3D
  2. 2. Moving to digitalWhilst 34% of concept design ideas are initially capturedon paper, a greater proportion are recorded electronically.You know why you want to digitalise your conceptdevelopment process - the question now is2D or 3D?
  3. 3. 2D Pros
  4. 4. • what you used to draw on paper is simplydrawn on a computer instead using akeyboard and mouse2D ProsSame graphicalrepresentation
  5. 5. • Once your concept is in electronic format,you can share it quickly with colleaguesglobally2D ProsEasier collaboration
  6. 6. 2D Cons
  7. 7. • Most 2D tools are geared towards creatingengineering drawings2D ConsLess suited toconcept design
  8. 8. • 2D softwares tend to focus on individualdrafting entities, rather than facilitating theconsideration of alternative design options2D ConsHarder to explorealternative ideas
  9. 9. 2D ConsDifficult to use forprototyping• Digital prototyping is unreliable• Unsuitable for rapid prototyping
  10. 10. 3D Pros
  11. 11. • less misinterpretation• reduces downstream errors3D ProsRemoves designambiguity
  12. 12. • As with 2D, electronic sending is easy3D ProsSharing is simple
  13. 13. • Leveraging existing 3D models to evolveinto new concept designs is straightforward3D ProsEasier design re-use
  14. 14. • 3D modelling is highly appropriate forrendings and simulation3D ProsSuitable for digitalprototyping
  15. 15. 3D Cons
  16. 16. • 3D CAD applications are usually designedfor locking down the form and fit of finaldesigns, not capturing and maturingconcept designs3D ConsIntended for detaileddesign work
  17. 17. • The risk of this is particularly applicable tousers of parametric feature-basedmodelers3D ConsInterdependencesand potential failures
  18. 18. • Many recent CAD tools deploy differentfiles for different design parts, when at theconcept development stage you are likelyto want just a single, whole representation3D ConsMultiple files
  19. 19. Did you know?59% of respondentsrecreate part of the designbecause design tool formatsaren’t compatible?
