Handbook of Solid Modeling
Donald E. LaCourse
McGraw-Hill, Jan 1, 1995 - Business & Economics - 512 pages
Solids modelling, a computer-generated mathematical program that allows design engineers to build a model of a three-dimensional object, has emerged as one of the most powerful and productive engineering tools of this century. This is a reference on the subject of solids modelling, containing tips and techniques contributed by many of the world's top design engineers. The text provides detailed information on solids modelling techniques, data exchange, applications, trends and what to expect from this technology in the future. The book should allow engineers to become familiar with solids modelling techniques through practical concepts and applications.
