The use of discrete data to represent engineering structures as derivatives from intersecting components requires algorithms to perform Boolean operations between groups of triangulated surfaces. In the intersection process, an accurate and efficient method for the determination of intersection lines is a crucial step for large scale and complex surface intersections. An algorithm based on tracing the neighbours of intersecting triangles (TNOIT) is proposed to determine the intersection lines… CONTINUE READING
