GeomConvert_BSplineCurveToBezierCurve (const Handle< Geom_BSplineCurve > &BasisCurve, const Standard_Real U1, const Standard_Real U2, const Standard_Real ParametricTolerance)
Computes all the data needed to convert the portion of the BSpline curve BasisCurve limited by the two parameter values U1 and U2 into a series of adjacent Bezier arcs. The result consists of a series of BasisCurve arcs limited by points corresponding to knot values of the curve. Use the available interrogation functions to ascertain the number of computed Bezier arcs, and then to construct each individual Bezier curve (or all Bezier curves). Note: ParametricTolerance is not used. Raises DomainError if U1 or U2 are out of the parametric bounds of the basis curve [FirstParameter, LastParameter]. The Tolerance criterion is ParametricTolerance. Raised if Abs (U2 - U1) <= ParametricTolerance. More...

Returns the number of BezierCurve arcs. If at the creation time you have decomposed the basis curve between the parametric values UFirst, ULast the number of BezierCurve arcs depends on the number of knots included inside the interval [UFirst, ULast]. If you have decomposed the whole basis B-spline curve the number of BezierCurve arcs NbArcs is equal to the number of knots less one. More...

 Handle< Geom_BezierCurve > GeomConvert_BSplineCurveToBezierCurve::Arc ( const Standard_Integer Index )

Constructs and returns the Bezier curve of index Index to the table of adjacent Bezier arcs computed by this algorithm. This Bezier curve has the same orientation as the BSpline curve analyzed in this framework. Exceptions Standard_OutOfRange if Index is less than 1 or greater than the number of adjacent Bezier arcs computed by this algorithm.

 void GeomConvert_BSplineCurveToBezierCurve::Arcs ( TColGeom_Array1OfBezierCurve & Curves )

Constructs all the Bezier curves whose data is computed by this algorithm and loads these curves into the Curves table. The Bezier curves have the same orientation as the BSpline curve analyzed in this framework. Exceptions Standard_DimensionError if the Curves array was not created with the following bounds:

• 1 , and
• the number of adjacent Bezier arcs computed by this algorithm (as given by the function NbArcs).
 void GeomConvert_BSplineCurveToBezierCurve::Knots ( TColStd_Array1OfReal & TKnots ) const

This methode returns the bspline's knots associated to the converted arcs Raised if the length of Curves is not equal to NbArcs + 1.

 Standard_Integer GeomConvert_BSplineCurveToBezierCurve::NbArcs ( ) const

Returns the number of BezierCurve arcs. If at the creation time you have decomposed the basis curve between the parametric values UFirst, ULast the number of BezierCurve arcs depends on the number of knots included inside the interval [UFirst, ULast]. If you have decomposed the whole basis B-spline curve the number of BezierCurve arcs NbArcs is equal to the number of knots less one.
