    Solid Modeling Architectures Mathematics And Algorithms

Course Organizer(s):



    Course Description

    Following a brief review of pertinent background concepts and an overview of the assumed modeling environment, lecturers present basic, contemporary solid modeling architectures. They introduce the importance of a boundary evaluation algorithm in such environments and describe an approach to such algorithms. Common curve and surface representa­tion schemes and intersection algorithms are then discussed; basic issues and contemporary approaches for boundary representations are presented. Finally, the role of features in modeling systems, feature recognition and design are discussed.
