 The abstract class Conic describes the common behavior of conic curves in 2D space and, in particular, their general characteristics. The Geom2d package provides four specific classes of conics: Geom2d_Circle, Geom2d_Ellipse, Geom2d_Hyperbola and Geom2d_Parabola. A conic is positioned in the plane with a coordinate system (gp_Ax22d object), where the origin is the center of the conic (or the apex in case of a parabola). This coordinate system is the local coordinate system of the conic. It gives the conic an explicit orientation, determining the direction in which the parameter increases along the conic. The "X Axis" of the local coordinate system also defines the origin of the parameter of the conic. More...
