Shape Interrogation for Computer Aided Design and Manufacturing
by Nicholas M. Patrikalakis, Takashi Maekawa
Publisher: Springer 2009
Number of pages: 408
Shape interrogation is the process of extraction of information from a geometric model. It is a fundamental component of Computer Aided Design and Manufacturing (CAD/CAM) systems. The authors focus on shape interrogation of geometric models bounded by free-form surfaces. Free-form surfaces, also called sculptured surfaces, are widely used in the bodies of ships, automobiles and aircraft, which have both functionality and attractive shape requirements.
