Solid modeling is computationally intensive. Thus far its use in industry has been limited mainly to simple parts and simple applications, and this is not likely to change much until ‘massive’ computing power can be made available at an affordable cost. The RayCasting Engine described in this paper is one specialized source of ‘massive’ computing power for solid modeling, and it is but the simplest member of a potentially large family of ‘classification computers’ for solid modeling. The Ray… CONTINUE READING
