    Constructive Solid Geometry ( CSG ) Uses Boolean operations to create complex  solids from primitives Primitives, Boolean operations stored in  database Can make changes to primitives Tree structure    Range of shapes limited (only primitives and  Booleans) Since primitives stored (not surface boundaries),  must recalculate model each time it is shaded Calculation of NC tool paths for machining is a  problem (surface info required)
