The integration of styling work into the overall product development process is still not sufficiently achieved. Engineering and styling use different concepts and terminologies. Both areas are increasingly well equipped with computer-aided tools which call for a formalisation of geometric and verbal model descriptions. In this paper a list of styling relevant features and properties is presented and simple measures proposed. These verbal and numerical representations of styling terms could be used for communicating the design intent of a model and for facilitating automatic optimisation procedures.
