|One area of focus for the UNC Research Group on Modeling, Physically-Based Simulation and Applications. The field of solid modeling deals with the design and representation of physical objects. The two major representation schemata used in solid modeling are constructive solid geometry (CSG) and boundary representations (B-rep). The makers of this site, at UNC, have developed algorithms and a system, BOOLE, for generating B-reps from CSG solids described using sculptured models. See an overview of their method, examples, papers and technical reports.|
