To date, methods that blend solids, that is, B-rep or CSG models, with implicit functions require successive composition of the blending functions to handle an arbitrary solid model. The shape of the resulting surfaces depends upon the algebraic distances defined by these functions. To achieve meaningful shapes, previous methods have relied on blending functions that have a pseudo-Euclidean distance measure. These methods are abstracted, resulting in some general observations.
