The CAD*I processors for Matra Datavision’s Euclid

  • U. Gengenbach
Part of the Research Reports ESPRIT book series (ESPRIT, volume 3)


Euclid is a solid modeller developed and sold by Matra Datavision, France. Its data structure captures both CSG and Polyhedron information. A number of application packages are based on the kernel modeller such as
  • AEC

  • 2D drafting

  • Schematics

  • Sculptured surfaces

  • Sheet metal bending

  • Finite element calculations

  • NC programme generation

All of these application modules are attached to the kernel system via the so-called language interface, a library of subroutine calls for creating, manipulating, deleting and evaluating objects in the Euclid data structure. Euclid version 4.2 has been made available during the project by Matra Datavision. It was running on a DEC MicroVAX II minicomputer under operating system VMS at KfK.
