With Finite Element Analysis, it's possible to create models that can be subjected to computer simulations, to determine how devices would work in real life. Unfortunately, traditional CAD systems only produce 2D images that literally don't have the depth needed for computer analysis.

BRL-CAD is a system developed by the Army's Ballistics Research Laboratory to create solid models. In this presentation, I will provide an overview of how BRL-CAD uses core primitives to create models that can then be used for simulations. [98]
