Abstract

This article describes an efficient time saving mechanism for tentative edge classification in a Constructive Solid Geometry (CSG) solid modelling system by using truth tables. First discussed is tentative edge generation and classification in general, followed by how truth tables and relmaps may be used to implement the classification.
