OpenCASCADE support of minkowski

Keith Sloan's picture

Hi I am a developer for FreeCAD and I work on the OpenSCAD module.

After some exchanges on the OpenSCAD forum I have a question.

Would it be possible for OpenCASCADE to support a minkowski request on two BREP objects.

At present to support OpenSCAD minkowski requests we have to create meshes from the two BREP objects and then call OpenSCAD to perform the minkowski request, returning a mesh. I would have thought a direct minkowski request on two BREP objects could produce a better result.
