Abstract in French

Cette contribution décrit l’aide potentielle que le concept de table interactive apporte à certaines tâches du concepteur en mécanique. Le travail de recherche présenté n’en est qu’à sa genèse. La problématique est la suivante : une fois la faisabilité d’une idée de produit (le concept) est prouvée, le concepteur développe l’architecture et les composants du produit (embodiment design). À ce niveau, l’esquisse joue un rôle prépondérant tant au niveau créatif qu’au niveau de l’analyse (calculs). D’autre part le concepteur doit communiquer très souvent avec les ingénieurs de production. Les outils actuels de conception assistée par ordinateur (CAO) ne donnent pas la même liberté, la même sensibilité, ni la... (More)

D’autre part le concepteur doit communiquer très souvent avec les ingénieurs de production. Les outils actuels de conception assistée par ordinateur (CAO) ne donnent pas la même liberté, la même sensibilité, ni la même possibilité de communication et de compréhension que l’esquisse. La table interactive dans ce domaine-là se présente comme une solution technique qui prend en compte la majorité des besoins du concepteur. (Less)
Abstract
This paper describes the potential help that the interactive desktop concept can bring to the execution of embodiment design tasks. The presented project is still in its infancy. The research framework is the following: once a product concept has been approved, the mechanical design engineer develops the product architecture and product part (also called embodiment design). Sketches at that level are essential both for synthesis and analysis purposes. Moreover, the designer has often to collaborate with the production department. The current CAD tools do not allow the same freedom, sensitivity nor the same possibility of communication and understanding the sketch. The interactive desktop is a technical mean that would allow taking into... (More)
