 Describes a surface of revolution (revolved surface). Such a surface is obtained by rotating a curve (called the "meridian") through a complete revolution about an axis (referred to as the "axis of revolution"). The curve and the axis must be in the same plane (the "reference plane" of the surface). Rotation around the axis of revolution in the trigonometric sense defines the u parametric direction. So the u parameter is an angle, and its origin is given by the position of the meridian on the surface. The parametric range for the u parameter is: [ 0, 2.*Pi ] The v parameter is that of the meridian. Note: A surface of revolution is built from a copy of the original meridian. As a result the original meridian is not modified when the surface is modified. The form of a surface of revolution is typically a general revolution surface (GeomAbs_RevolutionForm). It can be: More...
