2. Project Description

2.1 Project Abstract

This project aims at improving BRL-CAD’s Geometry Engine (which provides a clean and easy to use API for BRL-CAD's libraries and binaries) - by adding functionalities to the present primitive classes in the core C++ interface. The project is divided into two parts :

  1. Adding functions for finding Volume and Centroid of the primitives
  2. Adding functions for finding Surface Area of the primitives

2.2 Detailed Project description

You can find the link to the proposal here.
