Design and implementation of Sketcher user interface for a geometric constraint solver /
Thesis (M.S.)--University of Florida, 2002. "ABSTRACT (cont.)" This thesis deals with the various facilities of Sketcher that reflect and capture the facilities of FRONTIER's back end. Sketcher makes the visualization of the constraint systems as easy as possible. Sketcher also incorporates a "Simplesolver" as part of the front end. This solves simple constraint systems for display purposes, without invoking the back end. Sketcher allows the user to intervene and guide the system in the appropriate direction whenever necessary. Sketcher communicates with the other modules of the system just as efficiently. This thesis is a detailed presentation of both the 2D and the 3D user interfaces. While the 2D user interface deals with constraints in 2 dimensions, the 3D user interface deals with constraints in 3 dimensions. The 3D user interface makes visualization of these 3D constraints easier and more intuitive.
