CAD Generation and Evolution for Geometric Forms
In this chapter we will provide applications of the syntactic rules established in Chapter III for the generation and evolution of geometric forms. Most of these two-dimensional and three-dimensional forms are either taken directly from classical geometry or derived from geometric shapes, but some of the models have been inspired by more abstract geometries, such as topology, differential geometry, and projective geometry.
