Constructive solid geometry (algebraic shapes)

A direct volume description of the solid

  • Basic primitives - algebraic shaped volumes
    • Cuboids, cylinders, prisms, pyramids, spheres, cones
  • Boolean operations on sets: union, intersection and difference
  • A primitive can typically be described by a number of parameters; for example, a sphere may be described by the coordinates of its centre point, along with a radius value

Constructive solid geometry is typically used in cases where non-organic shapes are desired, or where mathematical accuracy is important

A set of relatively simple primitives can create very complicated geometry
