This report introduces the rapid prototype method newly developed to design individual housings. (Reference 1) Since the individual housing naturally owns different indoor configuration and surrounding environment, an introduction of the rapid prototype method into housing design is therefore effective. Especially, the scene of the individual housing with the surrounding buildings thus reproduced can allow to propose the individual housing not only as a housing simply, but also a special space emphasizing the relationship with the surrounding environment. With this system, the data for virtual experience was succeeded to prepare within three days. The relating functions are also introduced in this report.
