Think of modeling on multiple nested objects at the same time.
A line as the relation between two points, characterized with its stiffness, strength and arithmetic distance. A mesh as the result of dispositional and transformational operations of lines overlapping, crossing, netting each other.
There are quiet a few parallels between an object-oriented approach for architecture and the geometrical research at the Bauhaus from the 1920s. From Point to Line to Surface to Volume builded the descriptive hierarchy for construction and design from the 1920ties on for modernism and further. The seeded idea of courses like „Elementares Gestalten“ are not without reason deeply inherent to the logical structure of everyday CAD packages.
Handrawn, the hierarchy was an one-way-street. An element, once defined, was fixed, stable condition in itself. The the act of drawing constrained by arithmetic conditions.
Whereas today a computational object is defined by its autopoietic condition and its operational virtue in an environment. This opens the possibility of an conscious threshold between the disposition of the object and the assembly of the object itself. In social science Punctualization describes the point of bifurcation between the whole and the perception of its constituting elements.
