Boolean Operations


This library provides high-level algorithms to perform Boolean operations to create new shapes from old by using:

- Common
- Cut
- Fuse
- Section

In the way of additional topological tools, there are topological operations followed by blending (putting fillets onto edges created after the topological operation).

Topological operations are the most convenient way to create real industrial parts. As most industrial parts consist of several simple elements such as gear wheels, arms, holes, ribs, tubes and pipes. It is usually easy to create those elements separately and then to combine them by boolean operations in the whole final part.
