The design process relies on the designer's skills in sketching and 3D modelling heavily. The proximity between their sketches and 3D models defines if the final piece matches the initial idea. The designers are contemporary craftspeople. Even though the tools they used has been transformed into digital tools, the necessity for skillset to bring their ideas to life. In the process of improving those skill sets, design work tends to deviate from the original sketches to the final model.
Frosting Collection is a series of 3D printed objects exploring the design process. The final pieces were sketched through VR software manufactured through additive technology. The project aims to eliminate many steps of the design process and bring the designers sketches to final objects. The project is part of ongoing research that reexamines and structures design methodology.
