Solid Freeform Fabrication (SFF) methods have demonstrated the potential to manufacture parts from Functionally Gradient Materials (FGM). One of the keys to success is an accurate and systematic represention of varying material distributions in the geometry. This paper introduces a method called Volumetric Multi-Texturing (VMT) to represent a three(More)
In the production of discrete parts, there is a growing interest in the use of solid modeling systems (or feature-based systems) as the link between design and manufacturing activities. The use of such systems will be of limited value if it is not possible to interrogate the solid model of a part or assembly for geometric and non-geometric data. A(More)
