Boujut, J-F., Hisarciklilar, O., (2012) Using a semiotic classification to characterise objects involved in collaborative design, Journal of Design Research, 10 (3), pp. 155-169

Bookmark and Share

In cooperative design communication shifts from asynchronous to synchronous. Paper studies annotations (mostly in 2D and 3D product representations) as means to support design communication. Segmentation between expertise (design & manufacturing) has requested the use of accurate representations. In 2D … Continue reading
