Geometric constraints, specifying the relations between elements of a geometric model symbolically, are a powerful tool to express and reason about the design intent of geometric models. State of the art methods are limited to 2D constraints and simple 3D cases. This project aims to develop a clean theory for general geometric constraint systems to expand existing algorithm to more general cases.
