According to the target model for a designer to sketch, an effective style or shape of input device can be defined differently. The spatial sketch system that supports various types of wand can help to sketch efficiently. We suggest the idea of changing wand style by altering the posture of a 3D wand. This method allows a designer to work in intuitive ways without being interrupted by complicated menus. We implement the surface drawing and merging technique with the grid based data structure which deals with multiple strokes from various types of wand.
