Abstract

During conceptual design, a designer may wish to describe a shape vaguely, either because it is desired that the shape remains flexible or the shape has not yet been defined precisely. Maintaining the vagueness of an early idea until it is sufficiently developed is often of vital importance. However, most existing systems, mainly due to limitations in their modelling capabilities, attempt to interpret and thereby remove the vagueness at the earliest opportunity. This may lead to the loss of considerable information in original concepts or design fixation too early in the design stage. A new approach is needed to represent and maintain vague geometric information and such an approach is presented in this paper.
