Creating digital 3D models requires significant time and effort, even by experienced users. Tools such as 3D mice, motion capture cameras, and graphics tablets can make the creation process less tedious, but are generally not available to the average person.
In this thesis I introduce Flying Colors - an application prototype for tablet computers, that lets the user create 3D sketches (simple 3D wireframe models) using a novel multitouch interface.
This thesis covers the iterative process of designing and developing Flying Colors, as well evaluating it, using variousevaluation methods.
The final user study consists of a modified version ofPictionary, in which SketchUp is used as a point of reference,to measure the performance of Flying Colors. On average, it takes about the same amount of time to complete a task with Flying Colors, as with SketchUp. However, the Flying Colors data has a lower standard deviation, suggesting a more consistent performance. This reflects the subjective user feedback, which generally points towards a positive user experience with Flying Colors.
