Considering sunglasses’ design features like large capacity, short period, quick modification, being difficult to accurately capture the user demand and so on, this paper achieved the optimal design of sunglasses form, and developed a prototype system based on interactive genetic algorithm, which realized the optimization mechanism from three aspects, as lens form coding, visualized population construction and users’ interactive evaluation model design. The algorithm program is developed based on three-dimensional design platform Solid works, and running as macro. The software extracts parameters from the user defined model and automatically generates new designs with the parameters, and then displays them for user’s evaluation which drives the optimization process to go circularly.
