Model making design
Model making is divided mainly into three areas: functional, prototype and design models.
Functional models provide the essential and characteristic features of a product. They are used during the development of the design, to check and develop new and innovative functions. With the help of these exact experimental setups, the functional units are verified.
Prototypes correspond to the end product optically and functionally. Due to the haptic handling of the detailed prototype, the product can be tested for user friendliness, material, form and function before the start of production.
Design models are produced for presentations at fairs or in showrooms in a detailed and scale-appropriate manner. These simulate complex functions in a simplified way and give a perfect impression of the design and the core functions of the original product.
The scale of a model can be chosen freely. Larger models with a high level of detail are offer for trade fair appearances. Smaller models in travel-case format are ideal for customer visits and consultations.

simplify the understanding of design Glossary
In computing, a graphical user interface (GUI) is a type of interface that allows users to interact with electronic devices through graphical icons and visual indicators such as secondary notation, as opposed to text-based interfaces, typed command labels or text navigation. GUIs were introduced in reaction to the perceived steep learning curve of command-line interfaces which require commands to be typed on the keyboard.
The actions in a GUI are usually performed through direct manipulation of the graphical elements. As well as computers, GUIs can be found in hand-held devices such as MP3 players, portable media players, gaming devices and smaller household, office and industry equipment.
