Automotive Design

Welcome to the design section of Car Design Online. This area includes information on most of the pre-production elements of automotive design. These include the creative elements of vehicle development, such as sketching and modelling, as well as other important considerations, namely aerodynamics and ergonomics.

Aerodynamics

In this section we take a look at the science of aerodynamics and how manufacturers use CAD and wind-tunnel testing to perfect new vehicles.

Ergonomics

An increasingly important aspect of automotive design, this section on ergonomics and anthropometrics looks at design for human form and behaviour.

Modelling

Whether virtual or actual, realising a design in 3D has always been a critical element of vehicle development. From clay to CAD, we look at the different methods and practices.

Sketching

From a designer’s initial idea to fully resolved renderings; we take a look at how ideas are realised in 2D.
