How do design tools feedback material behavior to the designer? Digital design tools in use by designers today provide a rich environment for design of form but offer little feedback of the material that ultimately realize that form. This lack of materialism limits the value of the design tool and the exploration of the design space where material behavior provides important feedback to the designer. This study examines the modes and value of material feedback in design, illustrates the challenge with current tools and suggests enhancements to design tools to support material feedback.
