The modelling is being done with an interactive shape modelling program where the function model of the shape is sequentially modified with offset and set-theoretic operations. The final shape is represented in the data structure as a list of interactive operations over the basic shape.
A pressure sensitive graphics tablet and a six degree of freedom haptic input device have been used to realistically simulate the depth of
penetration of the tools. For visualisation, we have developed special fast interactive ray tracing and interactive polygonisation algorithms.

I've got a different take on this Nabbers - Sheilsey's pet fish tank theory. If I've seen it once, I've seen it a thousand times - just as tropical fish grow in proportion to the size of the tank you put them in, so do leaders.
Having promoted hundreds of folks over the years, you get good at it after a while - spotting someone who's reached their growth potential and isn't going to get any bigger unless you lift them into a larger space, and then off they spurt again. No question in my mind, Latho's growing before our eyes. Don't know how big he can grow, of course, but the boy's on a path to somewhere. Naturally, you also get the occasional dud, who doesn't grow a jot when you lift him/her up, despite promising appearances to the contrary
in their previous locale.
And then there is that the rare species of fish known as Howardians: put them in a bigger tank, and they shrink the tank.

Today's dialogue from "Tank McNamara" comic strip

Man #1: So that's your new TiVo?
Man #2: By jumping past pitching changes and the commercial blocks between innings, you can watch a whole game and save almost an hour.
Man #1: What would I do with another hour? Look, I have these unwanted periods of consciousness. I use TV sports to get rid of them.
