An extended pattern search algorithm is presented for the placement of shapeable components within a product layout. Shapeable octrees are used to evaluate the amount of overlap between pairs of components, extending previous technology that requires fixed-size components. The method is used to conceptualize the layout of the cross-section of an automatic transmission.
