Integrating environmental sustainability in undergraduate mechanical engineering courses using guided discovery instruction

In this paper, we discuss a guided discovery instruction approach for integrating environmental sustainability in undergraduate mechanical engineering courses. To validate the proposed approach, we conducted two studies with students in a computer-aided design and...

MobiSweep: Exploring Spatial Design Ideation Using a Smartphone as a Hand-held Reference Plane

In this paper, we explore quick 3D shape composition during early-phase spatial design ideation. Our approach is to re-purpose a smartphone as a hand-held reference plane for creating, modifying, and manipulating 3D sweep surfaces. We implemented MobiSweep, a...
