    The modeling of swept volume is important in simulating the interference between a moving solid and its environment. This article presents a novel method for modeling swept voume by computing a family of critical curves from a moving solid. Based on this approach, a system has been developed for real-time verification of NC tool paths using computer graphics. View full abstract»

    Parametric polynomial surfaces defined to satisfy given interpolatory or boundary constraints often suffer extraneous undesired features because of poor control over their many degrees of freedom. Current techniques for detecting and remedying such unexpected surface characteristics are primitive and inadequate. This article describes several surface analysis tools useful in detecting such anomalo... View full abstract»

    The fields of surface modeling and solid modeling have been developing quite independently. Today users of each system find they must employ functionality traditionally present only in the other system. This article focuses on issues related to the incorporation of sculptured surface functionality into solid modeling systems. Mathematical concepts related to sculptured surface modeling are reviewe... View full abstract»

    Accurate graphic position digitizers now require the use of a tablet. In rearprojection tablets the embedded wires or electrode structure tends to limit the optical quality of the image. The ultrasonic device described here avoids these limitations. It is wireless and uses any table or surface "tablet." Two small cylindrical transducers at the base station and a third as a hand-held positioncursor... View full abstract»
