I would like to know if this problem falls under a broader class of problems in CS that are not necessarily having to do with CAD. If so then there might be a mathematical theory, data structures and algorithms associated with it.

hmm... and I thought you are into this research direction since you posted a link to some research paper about this topic in my assembly thread. In that paper, they talked about how others deal with this problem. It seems to me that they are all approaching this problem in a more engineering way, rather than theoretical way.

Try Assembly3 (latest version

**0.8.6**) along with my custom build of FreeCAD at
