Describes functions to construct pipes. A pipe is built by sweeping a curve (the section) along another curve (the path). The Pipe class provides the following types of construction:
2) give a path and a section. Differtent options are available 2.a) Use the classical Frenet trihedron
3) give a path and N sections. The section evoluate from First to Last Section.
In general case the result is a NURBS. But we can generate plane, cylindrical, spherical, conical, toroidal surface in some particular case.
The natural parametrization of the result is:
UDirection along the section. VDirection along the path.
But, in some particular case, the surface must be construct otherwise. The method "EchangeUV" return false in such cases.
