Web-based Constructive Shape Modeling Using Real Distance Functions
IEICE transactions on information and systems
We present an approach and a web-based system implementation for modeling shapes using real distance functions. The system consists of an applet supporting the HyperFun modeling language. The applet is extended with primitives defined by Euclidean distance from a point to the surface of the shape. Set-theoretic operations (union, intersection, difference) that provide an approximation of the Euclidean distance to a shape built in a constructive way are introduced. Such operations have adoi:10.1093/ietisy/e88-d.5.828 fatcat:4ajvj7jjyzc2rloefztsqr5gqq
