Solid modeling is an important technique for achieving automation in geometric modeling, which forms the basis of CAD/CAM. The solid modeler employs set operations to compute sum-, difference- and product-sets between operand solids to generate a new solid, where a solid is expressed rigorously, that is, it has no representational ambiguity. In set operations, the state of interference between solids is numerically determined, and the result is used to modify their topological relation.
