Conceptual product data in packages, digital mockups or layout plans are the basis for designing the shape of a product. A system approach is presented which allows for the incorporation of these restrictive data in an appropriate manner for computer-aided styling tasks. The highly interactive and easy-to-use system components support the abstraction, midification and verification of conceptual data for preparation as well as the creative and intuitive modelling of three dimensional shapes. Characteristic of the new modelling approach is the strong analogy with the traditional. still predominant clay modelling process in the field of industrial design.
