Having examined the more theoretical foundations of form modeling in relation to computer-aided design, we now consider its technical aspects and analyze specific methods. As previously indicated, form modeling and design are terms used in several disciplines; but in this chapter the term computer-aided design will be used specifically with reference to architectural forms. Nevertheless, the generation of forms in other disciplines should not be considered an extraneous application, since any three-dimensional form can be constructed and visualized using the processes described here.
