ILoveSketch – Amazing 3D program

Seok-Hyung Bae, Ravin Balakrishnan, and Karan Singh, “ILoveSketch: As-natural-as-possible sketching system for creating 3D curve models,” (To appear) ACM Symposium on User Interface Software and Technology 2008 (Monterey, CA, USA, October 19-22, 2008) [pdf] via NOTCOT.

A 3D curve sketching system that captures some of the affordances of pen and paper for professional designers, allowing them to iterate directly on concept 3D curve models. The system coherently integrates existing techniques of sketch-based interaction with a number of novel and enhanced features. Novel contributions of the system include automatic view rotation to improve curve sketchability, an axis widget for sketch surface selection, and implicitly inferred changes between sketching techniques. We also improve on a number of existing ideas such as a virtual sketchbook, simplified 2D and 3D view navigation, multi-stroke NURBS curve creation, and a cohesive gesture vocabulary.
