Fundamentals of Geometric Construction

Abstract : This module is designated Fundamentals of geometric construction. It is composed of six topics:
1. Point, plane, polygon and platonic
2. Geometry in mechanics
3. Symmetry and solid modelling
4. Quadric surfaces and their intersection
5. Parametric curves and surfaces
6. Connecting two lines with a third
These topics are meant as examples to stimulate geometric thinking. This facility is especially important in design however it is overlooked or absent in many engineering courses.
