BRepBuilderAPI_MakeShell Class Reference

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...

Detailed Description

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:

Constructor & Destructor Documentation

◆ BRepBuilderAPI_MakeShell() [1/3]

BRepBuilderAPI_MakeShell::BRepBuilderAPI_MakeShell ( )

Constructs an empty shell framework. The Init function is used to define the construction arguments. Warning The function Error will return BRepBuilderAPI_EmptyShell if it is called before the function Init.

◆ BRepBuilderAPI_MakeShell() [2/3]

BRepBuilderAPI_MakeShell::BRepBuilderAPI_MakeShell ( const Handle< Geom_Surface > &  S,
const Standard_Boolean  Segment = Standard_False 
)

Constructs a shell from the surface S.

◆ BRepBuilderAPI_MakeShell() [3/3]

BRepBuilderAPI_MakeShell::BRepBuilderAPI_MakeShell ( const Handle< Geom_Surface > &  S,
const Standard_Real  UMin,
const Standard_Real  UMax,
const Standard_Real  VMin,
const Standard_Real  VMax,
const Standard_Boolean  Segment = Standard_False 
)

Constructs a shell from the surface S, limited in the u parametric direction by the two parameter values UMin and UMax, and limited in the v parametric direction by the two parameter values VMin and VMax.

Member Function Documentation

◆ Error()

BRepBuilderAPI_ShellError BRepBuilderAPI_MakeShell::Error ( ) const

Returns the construction status:

  • BRepBuilderAPI_ShellDone if the shell is built, or
  • another value of the BRepBuilderAPI_ShellError enumeration indicating why the construction failed. This is frequently BRepBuilderAPI_ShellParametersOutOfRange indicating that the given parameters are outside the bounds of the surface.

◆ Init()

void BRepBuilderAPI_MakeShell::Init ( const Handle< Geom_Surface > &  S,
const Standard_Real  UMin,
const Standard_Real  UMax,
const Standard_Real  VMin,
const Standard_Real  VMax,
const Standard_Boolean  Segment = Standard_False 
)

Defines or redefines the arguments for the construction of a shell. The construction is initialized with the surface S, limited in the u parametric direction by the two parameter values UMin and UMax, and in the v parametric direction by the two parameter values VMin and VMax. Warning The function Error returns:

  • BRepBuilderAPI_ShellParametersOutOfRange when the given parameters are outside the bounds of the surface or the basis surface if S is trimmed

◆ IsDone()

virtual Standard_Boolean BRepBuilderAPI_MakeShell::IsDone ( ) const
overridevirtual

Returns true if the shell is built.

Reimplemented from BRepBuilderAPI_Command.

◆ operator TopoDS_Shell()

BRepBuilderAPI_MakeShell::operator TopoDS_Shell ( ) const

◆ Shell()

const TopoDS_Shell& BRepBuilderAPI_MakeShell::Shell ( ) const

Returns the new Shell.
