Solid Modeling in Gocad : Latest Advances.

Abstract

Boundary Representations (b-reps) present a lot of potential applications in Geosciences, but are still relatively underused in Gocad. This paper presents recent works on this representation to improve its usability. First, a new construction method is described, that can be used to create easily a sealed model from a valid structural model. Second, two approaches to interactively visualize b-reps with solid sections are described. Third, the interactive editing method presented last year is described and extended.
