`ConstructiveGeometry.jl`

Documentation

This package provides tools for describing 3d objects in Julia. For example, this is the Julia code used to draw the logo of this page:

```
using ConstructiveGeometry
using CairoMakie
hexagon = polygon([[cospi(t/3),sinpi(t/3)] for t in 0:5])
c1, c2, c3 = parse.(ConstructiveGeometry.Colorant, ( "#cb3c33", "#9558b2", "#389826"))
bolt = linear_extrude(5)*(8*hexagon) ∪ cylinder(15,4) ∪
rotate_extrude(7*360, slide=14)*translate([1,0])*square(4,1)
m = union(c1*bolt, [20,0,0]+c2*bolt, [10,17,0]+c3*bolt)
save("logo.png", Makie.plot(m))
```

# Overview

This package defines three kinds of abstract geometric objects (in either two or three dimensions):

- primitive geometric objects, such as cubes, spheres, etc.;
- geometric transformations acting on one object, such as (invertible) affine transformations, extrusions, projections, color-change, etc.;
- CSG operations combining several objects, such as boolean operations or Minkowski sum.

Any geometric object defined in this way can then be instantiated as an explicit mesh. The mesh may be visualized directly within Julia (using `Makie`

) or exported as an STL (for 3d objects) or SVG (for 2d objects) file.
