When design process builds on making models, it can contribute to both visualization of ideas and quality control of the design process to ensure the success of the developed concept. In making industrial prototypes, different techniques are applied regarding issues such as cost, time, availability of materials, scale, quality and intended purpose of the designer. The present paper suggests step-by-step instructions of the layering technique, a widely-used technique employed by product designers. The capabilities of this technique are as follows: Any form with any degree of complexity, either solid or shell form and with any scale, can be built with this technique. Any sheet materials cut with common tools can be utilized in this technique. Depending on thickness of the sheet used, dimensional accuracy of the model will change.The paper ends with presenting sample models made with layering techniques along with a brief description.
