Industrial design software helps users create, analyze, visualize, and communicate design intent and aesthetics before building a physical prototype. Many of the everyday products we use have been designed through industrial design software, from tablets to headphones to cars.
Polygonal modeling software is used in industrial design for concept modeling and is useful for quick ideation.
Surface modeling software is used widely across industrial design and lets designers create and adjust freeform 3D surfaces with high precision.
Solid modeling software is used to create 3D models, assemblies, and drawings.
With parametric modeling, you can change parameters in the software, altering the shape of the design based on those values.
See how San Francisco–based industrial design company Astro Studios designed its Minus 8 watches and even its packaging with Alias.
See how Dallas startup Radical Transport developed its electrical rideable, the Moov, with the help of Inventor.
