How quickly and effectively a designer can transform a mental concept into a digital object that is easy to refine and reuse is a central challenge in computer graphics. The focus of this project is, therefore, to develop new mathematical representations, or build upon existing ones, to capture the essence of shape as perceived by designers. In the past year, a freeware software program, Shapeshop, which was developed by the project team was released for download.
