We describe an incremental algorithm for computing interpolants for a pair ϕ A , ϕ B of formulas in propositional logic. In contrast with the common approaches, our method does not require a proof of unsatisfiability of ϕ A  ∧ ϕ B , and can be realized using any SAT solver as a black box. We achieve this by combining model enumeration with the ability to easily generate interpolants in the special case that one of the formulas is a cube.
