Description:


    A new technique for computer graphics modeling and ani­ mation is demonstrated called “Dynamics Constraints:• The technique is applicable to simulating the self-assembly and dynamic behavior of mechanical elements, maintaining geometric constraints on the configuration. The constraints are met by applying the appropriate internal forces between the elements of the structures. Constraint-based physical and dynamic modeling tools offer an improvement over con­ ventional modeling techniques, for controlling intricate motions.
