can anyone point me to where I can find information on constructive solid geometry algorithms - especially as they apply to polygons (no octree or voxel algorithms please). Any code would be greatly appreciated.

Solid geometry hugh!  There is a good book call "Programming Tips from the Gaming Gurus".  I have used it and it is very useful for constructing solid geometric shapes.  It shows how to do hidden surfaces, perspective and clean rotating of viewers orientation.  The code examples are to involved for discussion here.  Other books on gaming might be of use to you as well.  All of them are very easy to read and if the math is a problem I will be more than happy to help.
