No, it's not a solid modeler and doesn't have that level of precision.
It's great for conceptual work, but it doesn't output mechanical 
information of much use, so you couldn't send a model direct from 
houdini to a cnc machine, for example. Components have no awareness of 
each other in a mechanical sense.
