Parametric modeling provides many capabilities for designers who are willing to invest time and effort at the beginning and design parametrically. However, it does not work well when there are idiosyncrasies in the design and does not allow the designer to freely apply his design intents outside of the parametric structure of the model. In this project, we propose a new framework that alternates between parametric and non-parametric modes and allows the designers to make non-parametric adjustments to their parametric design without losing the parametric structure. We demonstrate this idea on a type of design we call near-parametric and apply it on Frank Lloyd Wright’s glass window designs.
