 English term or phrase: counter-parts Buenas tardes, ¿Podría alguien ayudarme con esta palabra? Aparece en un texto sobre sistemas autómatas. Mi ignorancia matemática me impide saber con exactitud cómo diríamos esto en español: "discrete combinatorial counter-parts". ¿Equivalentes combinatorios discretos/discontinuos...?? Nunca lo había oido. "On the subject of Additive Manufacturing, or 3D printing, the program will seek to understand the relationship between a physical object and its discrete combinatorial counter-parts and thereby to create geometric based algorithms for better error control during the manufacturing" Gracias!!!
