IFIP operating team 5.2 has equipped a chain of workshops aimed toward offering and discussing present matters and destiny views of Geometric Modeling within the CAD surroundings.
From Geometric Modeling to form Modeling contains the complaints of the 7th GEO workshop, which was once subsidized through the overseas Federation for info Processing (IFIP) and held in Parma, Italy in October 2000. The workshop checked out new paradigms for CAD together with the evolution of geometric-centric CAD structures, modeling of non-rigid fabrics, form modeling, geometric modeling and digital prototyping, and new tools of interplay with geometric types.
The seventeen integrated papers offer an enticing assessment of the evolution of geometric centric modeling into form modeling. additionally incorporated is an invited speaker paper, which discusses the root of the following new release of CAD structures, the place form and serve as increase geometric descriptions.
the most themes mentioned within the booklet are:
- Theoretical beginning for solids and surfaces;
- Computational foundation for geometric modeling;
- tools of interplay with geometric types;
- commercial and different functions of geometric modeling;
- New paradigms of geometric modeling for CAD;
- form modeling.
From Geometric Modeling to form Modeling is key analyzing for researchers, graduate and postgraduate scholars, structures builders of complicated computer-aided layout and production structures, and engineers interested in business applications.
