summary 
Parametric equation is one of the possible ways to generate freeform architecture in modern age. When
working with mathematical software, designers need a way to bring surface mesh to CAD for further design.
Surf_TM is an supplemental tool for AutoCAD to import and manipulate surface mesh data from Mathcad.
Accompanying with a course taught in Harvard Design School, students gain knowledge in mathematics and
use parametric equation as a design tool. This paper elaborates details of the course, the tool, how they work
together, and example applications.
