Interactive evolutionary computation (IEC) is an effective solution for problems of user subjectivity. However, a significant problem with IEC is user fatigue. IEC requires direct evaluation, and so increasing the number of generations results in increased fatigue. We previously reported a method for building a three-dimensional (3D) model using interactive evolution. Here, we propose a method of direct manipulation (DM) using IEC to reduce user fatigue, whereby direct encoding is applied to
