The Creativity Event organized by FIR took place on February 21st/22nd 2022 within the institute building. The participants were RWTH Aachen University students and PhD candidates from several different engineering and business backgrounds (e.g. smart services, mechanical, industrial, civil). Overall 16 people participated (8 male, 8 female, average age: 25,7). None of the participants had been introduced to VR Sketching beforehand.
During the Creativity Event participants where tasked to re-designing the conference room by drafting their favourite piece of furniture or their ideal workplace. After a short introduction they gathered ideas in the Co-Creation and Creativity Session before starting the design process.
The interaction with the program was positively evaluated by the participants and all 16 participants were able to design the furniture pieces requested in the co-creation workshops in the time2sketch tool. It was exciting that the individual participants developed different styles in the 3D designs. The participants were surprised how quickly and efficiently they were able to design the furniture with the sketching tool. They appreciated the fact that it was possible to imagine the designs spatially and make them almost tangible digitally.
