This paper proposes an algorithm for streaming manifold solid models and NURBS geometry. A neutral streaming representation consisting of a nodes graph is encoded by a one-dimensional dynamic stack. The encoded model is transmitted over the Internet, where a two-dimensional dynamic stack decodes and reconstructs the solid model. The time and storage complexity of the algorithm are investigated. An example of streaming a solid model, resulting from a proof-of-concept implementation, is demonstrated.
