class  BRepBuilderAPI_MakeShell
 Describes functions to build a shape corresponding to the skin of a surface. Note that the term shell in the class name has the same definition as that of a shell in STEP, in other words the skin of a shape, and not a solid model defined by surface and thickness. If you want to build the second sort of shell, you must use BRepOffsetAPI_MakeOffsetShape. A shell is made of a series of faces connected by their common edges. If the underlying surface of a face is not C2 continuous and the flag Segment is True, MakeShell breaks the surface down into several faces which are all C2 continuous and which are connected along the non-regular curves on the surface. The resulting shell contains all these faces. Construction of a Shell from a non-C2 continuous Surface A MakeShell object provides a framework for: More...
