  Encompassing a wide range of mathematical concepts, this text/reference presents a comprehensive theory of dimensioning and parameterizing of geometric models. This volume develops a unified and systematic theory of intrinsic and relational dimensioning using the powerful notion of congruence.

Packed with illustrative examples and exercises, it explains how basic geometric knowledge can be used to understand and approach various dimensioning challenges and provides valuable methods for parameterizing geometric models. This valuable reference discusses how dimensional constraints are resolved and managed and offers effective techniques to dimension and parameterize solids.
