Algebraic Computer Aided-Design with Maple V 2
This paper describes implicit_solids which implements implicit solid modeling (ISM) using MapleV2. Implicit solid modeling refers to the method that uses an implicit function to define a composite object. Various primitives are pre-defined and joined using Boolean operations to form the resulting implicit function [Storti et al. 1992].
