Abstract

An approach using reasoning Boolean operation to model heterogeneous object is presented. Algorithm in the reasoning Boolean operation consists of merging and extraction operation. This algorithm models heterogeneous object at multi-volume level. Due to its CAD-based nature, the model can be implemented with advanced CAD/CAE/CAM software for integrated design, simulation, and prototyping fabrication. Example of using the developed modeling technique to construct the heterogeneous composite unit cells, to perform integrated design and analysis, and to develop a pseudo-processing algorithm for layered fabrication of heterogeneous object is also presented.
