3.7.167. Orthotope

Figure 3.7.37. Illustration of the notion of orthotope for various dimensions

A constraint involving orthotopes. An orthotope corresponds to the generalisation of the rectangle and box to the n -dimensional case. In addition its sides are parallel to the axes of the Β placement space. FigureΒ 3.7.37 illustrates the notion of orthotope for n=1,2,3 and 4.
