Design & Modeling

The Makerspace@KSL provides design and modeling materials for prototyping [PDF]. Prototyping is a great way to develop design ideas, try different approaches and test them. Models can help communicate the intent of a design clearly and effectively and provide a low-cost method of gathering feedback from users.
