A Tutorial on Implicit Solid Modeling

Volume 2, Issue 3
Summer 1992
Duane Storti, Mark Ganter, and Cornelius Nevrinceanu, University of Washington

The ImplicitSolids solid-modeling package provides methods for computer-aided design of three-dimensional solid objects in terms of implicit functions. Composite solids are created using algebraic approximations of Boolean operations on volume sets and are visualized by spherical plotting or ray casting.
