Sketching has been the chosen method of expression of product ideas in the initial phase of product design.Existing CAD modeling systems do not support the early phases of design effectively. There has been growing interest to integrate sketching and 3D modeling mainly because of recent developments in interfaces likemotion trackers and haptic devices. The paper reviews the state of the art literature in the areas of conceptual design and sketching, 3D shape creation and visualization, sketch based modeling and sketch recognition to understand the scope of 3D sketching in the design process. It is observed that the majority of the literatures focus on creation of 3D models by interpreting 2D sketch strokes. Sketching behavior of the designer, while creating sketches directly in 3D needs detailed study
