Embodiment of a concept has constantly been a preventive factor in creativity when it comes to complex topics. This has been moderated by emergence of digital fabrication since late 80's. Making the ultimate prototype of a design was the initial assumed use for these technologies in the design process. However, new technology advances in this area bring up further opportunities for designers. In this research, these opportunities have been explored through a case study by discussing the findings and theories of Industrial Design methodology and engineering. Considering the span of digital fabrication capabilities, this research looks into the relation of design-fabrication from the methodology perspective and focuses on addressing the impact of digital fabrication methods, which can be integrated into the Industrial Design process in the very first stage. It is argued that the above is achievable in certain design topics - i.e. those with known components but unknown architecture. This has been studied through the development of two hypothetical design processes emphasizing the role of digital fabrication as an ideation tool rather than a presentation tool. It is hoped that these findings along with the advances in the area of additive and subtractive fabrication will assist industrial designers to create design methodologies to deal with the complicated needs in both design practice and education.
