Automotive Design
AUTOMOTIVE DESIGN is the profession involved in the development of the appearance, and to some extent the ergonomics , of motor vehicles or more specifically road vehicles. This most commonly refers to automobiles but also refers to motorcycles , trucks , buses , coaches , and vans . The functional design and development of a modern motor vehicle is typically done by a large team from many different disciplines included within automotive engineering . Automotive design
Automotive design
in this context is primarily concerned with developing the visual appearance or aesthetics of the vehicle, though it is also involved in the creation of the product concept. Automotive design

Texture (visual Arts)
In the visual arts, TEXTURE is the perceived surface quality of a work of art . It is an element of two-dimensional and three-dimensional designs and is distinguished by its perceived visual and physical properties. Use of texture, along with other elements of design, can convey a variety of messages and emotions.

The physical texture (also known as actual texture or tactile texture) are the patterns of variations upon a solid surface. This can include -but is not limited to- fur , wood grain, sand , smooth surface of canvas or metal, glass, and leather

Model Year
The MODEL YEAR (MY) of a product is a number used worldwide, but with a high level of prominence in North America
North America
, to describe approximately when a product was produced, and it usually indicates the coinciding base specification (design revision number) of that product. The model year and the actual calendar year of production rarely coincide. For example, a 2015 model year automobile is available during most of the 2015 calendar year, but is usually also available from the third quarter of 2014 because production of the 2015 model began in July or August 2014. When a new model is introduced there may be an additional delay to retool and retrain for production of the new model. The variables of build date and design revision number are semi-independent

Ford Taurus
The FORD TAURUS is an automobile manufactured by Ford in the United States. Now in its sixth generation, it was originally introduced in the 1986 model year, and has remained in near-continuous production for more than two decades. It has had a Mercury -branded twin the Sable (1986–2005; 2008–2009), as well as a performance variant, the Ford Taurus SHO (1989–1999 and 2010–); in addition, it served as the basis for the first-ever front-wheel drive Lincoln Continental (1988–2002). It was a front-wheel drive mid-size car until 2007, and has been a "global" full-size car (built on the Ford D3 platform ) since 2008, and available in front- or all-wheel drive since 2008. The original Taurus was a milestone for Ford and the entire American automotive industry , bearing an influential design that brought many new features and innovations to the marketplace

Sketch (drawing)
A SKETCH (ultimately from Greek σχέδιος – schedios, "done extempore" ) is a rapidly executed freehand drawing that is not usually intended as a finished work. A sketch may serve a number of purposes: it might record something that the artist sees, it might record or develop an idea for later use or it might be used as a quick way of graphically demonstrating an image, idea or principle. Sketches can be made in any drawing medium. The term is most often applied to graphic work executed in a dry medium such as silverpoint , graphite , pencil , charcoal or pastel . But it may also apply to drawings executed in pen and ink, ballpoint pen, water colour and oil paint . The latter two are generally referred to as "water colour sketches" and "oil sketches ". A sculptor might model three-dimensional sketches in clay , plasticine or wax

Color
COLOR ( American English
American English
) or COLOUR (Commonwealth English ) is the characteristic of human visual perception described through color categories, with names such as red , blue , yellow , green , orange , or purple . This perception of color derives from the stimulation of cone cells in the human eye by electromagnetic radiation in the spectrum of light . Color
Color
categories and physical specifications of color are associated with objects through the wavelength of the light that is reflected from them. This reflection is governed by the object's physical properties such as light absorption, emission spectra, etc. By defining a color space , colors can be identified numerically by coordinates

Leather
LEATHER is a durable and flexible material created by tanning animal rawhide and skin, often cattle hide. It can be produced at manufacturing scales ranging from cottage industry to heavy industry .

Plastic
Note 1: The use of this term instead of polymer is a source of confusion and thus is not recommended. Note 2: This term is used in polymer engineering for materials often compounded that can be processed by flow. PLASTIC is material consisting of any of a wide range of synthetic or semi-synthetic organic compounds that are malleable and so can be molded into solid objects. Plasticity is the general property of all materials which can deform irreversibly without breaking but, in the class of moldable polymers , this occurs to such a degree that their actual name derives from this ability. Plastics are typically organic polymers of high molecular mass , but they often contain other substances. They are usually synthetic, most commonly derived from petrochemicals , but many are made from renewable materials such as polylactic acid from corn or cellulosics from cotton linters

Textile
A TEXTILE or CLOTH is a flexible material consisting of a network of natural or artificial fibres (yarn or thread ). Yarn is produced by spinning raw fibres of wool , flax , cotton , hemp , or other material to produce long strands. Textiles are formed by weaving , knitting , crocheting , knotting , or felting . The words FABRIC and cloth are used in textile assembly trades (such as tailoring and dressmaking ) as synonyms for textile. However, there are subtle differences in these terms in specialized usage. Textile refers to any material made of interlacing fibres. A fabric is a material made through weaving, knitting, spreading, crocheting, or bonding that may be used in production of further goods (garments, etc.). Cloth may be used synonymously with fabric but is often a finished piece of fabric used for a specific purpose (e.g., table cloth)

Powertrain
In a motor vehicle , the term POWERTRAIN or POWERPLANT describes the main components that generate power and deliver it to the road surface, water, or air. This includes the engine , transmission , drive shafts , differentials , and the final drive (drive wheels , continuous track as in military tanks or caterpillar tractors, propeller , etc.). More recently in hybrid Powertrains the battery, the electric motor and the control algorithm are also seen as elements of the Powertrain. Usually "powertrain" is used to refer to simply the engine and transmission, including the other components only if they are integral to the transmission. A motor vehicle's DRIVELINE or drivetrain consists of the parts of the powertrain excluding the engine and transmission. It is the portion of a vehicle, after the transmission, that changes depending on whether a vehicle is front-wheel , rear-wheel , or four-wheel drive , or less-common six-wheel or eight-wheel drive

Production Line
A PRODUCTION LINE is a set of sequential operations established in a factory where materials are put through a refining process to produce an end-product that is suitable for onward consumption; or components are assembled to make a finished article. Typically, raw materials such as metal ores or agricultural products such as foodstuffs or textile source plants (cotton , flax ) require a sequence of treatments to render them useful. For metal, the processes include crushing, smelting and further refining. For plants, the useful material has to be separated from husks or contaminants and then treated for onward sale
