Architectural design is confronted to a renewal of formal vocabulary regarding the advancements on computational techniques. Recent advancements in digital representation and geometric description of architectural form are raising more and more questions in regard to materialization. Construction and assembling constraints are parts of data needed to rationalize a geometric model. This paper reports on part of a research activity aiming at elaborating a tool capable of transforming geometric description of a non-standard form to constructive geometry.
