Abstract

This paper presents a framework we have developed for modeling and manipulation of volumetric data sets. It is a set of new functions integrated into a CAD system. We shall address freeform modeling through voxelization of NURBS, voxel-based sculpting and the interface to CAD and Rapid Prototyping systems.
