Here is my sentence,

regular objects can be geometrically modelled by intersecting ridges themselves and also with other boundary segments.

I feel this "themselves" degrade the quality of sentence or idea. I want to tell that objects can be modeled by intersecting ridges and ridges, and also ridges and other boundary line segments.

Is there any other way to explain this idea?

  • Seems "Too Localized". It might be a good question for chat, but not as an ELL question.

How about the following.

Regular objects can be geometrically modeled by ridges intersecting either other ridges, or boundary segments.

The other is the key innovation here, as it makes it separates the two "groups" of ridges.
