Current computer-aided design (CAD) applications deliver limited user experience due to their complex functionality and step-by-step evolution; on the contrary, games offer memorable and formative experiences to their users. Hence, the article focuses on the architecture characteristics of games and CAD with a particular interest in developing and evaluating a CAD system embedded with game mechanics for mechanical engineering design. To establish the benefit of game-enriched engineering design ecosystem preliminary experiments were conducted to investigate engineer affect whilst carrying out parametric design tasks in a game-based CAD UI. By analysing their psycho-physiological signals and action log data an interaction model was established to identify which feedback game mechanics contributed the most in the user’s design experience.
