topology of wires


I have a set of wires where there are a few wires inside other.How can I distinguish which one is outerwire and which one of them is inner wire? and the relation between those wires.Any class or function related would be really helpful..

Please reply

Dear Divya.

A wire itself is just set of edges and nothing more.
Thus you can not classify one wire (W1) vs another (W2).
This classification becomes possible when you have the one
surface (S) to which both of wires belong to.
- Try to make a face (F1) from S and say W1.
- Then classify W2 with regard to F1 using for e.g. IntTools_FClass2d.

good luck

Is there any function to figure out which surface does a particular wire lie on?
