Visualization algorithm for CSG polyhedral solids

(1, 2)


An algorithm is presented here to visualize here to visualize CSG solids in wireframe with hidden faces eliminated. The approach taken is to construct the image of the CSG solid directly from the CSG tree. This algorithm takes into account the face coherence property and the depth of the faces to minimize the number of rays fired during the process. It mixes a two-dimensional polygonal clipping and a ray-casting algorithm.
