Prototyping is a fundamental activity across design with one of the most common types of tool used during prototyping sessions are construction kits. These kits have of a number of bricks that designers are able to construct designs from. Meeting the constraints within a kit ensures a valid solution. With the advent of high-performance computing, this paper computes the solution space that is represented by construction kits and investigates the number of pathways to potential solutions and reveals that construction kits have an inherent bias to particular solutions.
