Abstract
A product modeling system GEMS 4.0 has been implemented, in which feature representation is used at the highest level abstraction of a product model, boundary representation is used at the bottom level, while CSG model is adopted at the median level. A BRep data structure capable of modeling non-manifold is adopted. NURBS representation is used for all curved surfaces. Quadric surfaces have dual representations consisting of their geometric data such as radius, centerpoint, and center axis. The geometric data are not only necessary for the mapping of form features of the corresponding CSG models, but also useful for accelerating certain time consuming calculations such as surface-surface intersections. Boundary representation of free form surfaces are easily built by sweeping and skinning method with NURBS geometry. Set operations on curved solids with boundary representation are performed by an evaluation process consisting of four steps: intersection, construction, classification and selection.
