In this paper, we formulate new algorithms to obtain the differential geometric properties of surface-surface intersection curves in $\mathbb{R}^3$. We also show its applicability to obtain geodesic curvature and geodesic torsion of two regular implicit surfaces in $\mathbb{R}^3$. Our new method will be distinguished from the older ones in the sense that we will use Rodrigues’ rotation formula and using a new operator $T$.
