 Creates a rational B_spline curve on the basis <Knots, Multiplicities> of degree <Degree>. Raises ConstructionError subject to the following conditions 0 < Degree <= MaxDegree. More...
 
void IncreaseDegree (const Standard_Integer Degree)
 Increases the degree of this BSpline curve to Degree. As a result, the poles, weights and multiplicities tables are modified; the knots table is not changed. Nothing is done if Degree is less than or equal to the current degree. Exceptions Standard_ConstructionError if Degree is greater than Geom_BSplineCurve::MaxDegree(). More...

void InsertKnot (const Standard_Real U, const Standard_Integer M=1, const Standard_Real ParametricTolerance=0.0, const Standard_Boolean Add=Standard_True)
 Inserts a knot value in the sequence of knots. If <U> is an existing knot the multiplicity is increased by <M>. More...
 
void InsertKnots (const TColStd_Array1OfReal &Knots, const TColStd_Array1OfInteger &Mults, const Standard_Real ParametricTolerance=0.0, const Standard_Boolean Add=Standard_False)
 Inserts a set of knots values in the sequence of knots. More...
 
Standard_Boolean RemoveKnot (const Standard_Integer Index, const Standard_Integer M, const Standard_Real Tolerance)
 Reduces the multiplicity of the knot of index Index to M. If M is equal to 0, the knot is removed. With a modification of this type, the array of poles is also modified. Two different algorithms are systematically used to compute the new poles of the curve. If, for each pole, the distance between the pole calculated using the first algorithm and the same pole calculated using the second algorithm, is less than Tolerance, this ensures that the curve is not modified by more than Tolerance. Under these conditions, true is returned; otherwise, false is returned. A low tolerance is used to prevent modification of the curve. A high tolerance is used to "smooth" the curve. Exceptions Standard_OutOfRange if Index is outside the bounds of the knots table. pole insertion and pole removing this operation is limited to the Uniform or QuasiUniform BSplineCurve. The knot values are modified . If the BSpline is NonUniform or Piecewise Bezier an exception Construction error is raised. More...
 
void Reverse () override
 Changes the direction of parametrization of <me>. The Knot sequence is modified, the FirstParameter and the LastParameter are not modified.

 Returns the parameter on the reversed curve for the point of parameter U on <me>. More...
 
void Segment (const Standard_Real U1, const Standard_Real U2, const Standard_Real theTolerance=Precision::PConfusion())
 Modifies this BSpline curve by segmenting it between U1 and U2. Either of these values can be outside the bounds of the curve, but U2 must be greater than U1. All data structure tables of this BSpline curve are modified, but the knots located between U1 and U2 are retained. The degree of the curve is not modified. More...
 
void SetKnot (const Standard_Integer Index, const Standard_Real K)
 Modifies this BSpline curve by assigning the value K to the knot of index Index in the knots table. This is a relatively local modification because K must be such that: Knots(Index - 1) < K < Knots(Index + 1) The second syntax allows you also to increase the multiplicity of the knot to M (but it is not possible to decrease the multiplicity of the knot with this function). Standard_ConstructionError if: More...
 
void SetKnots (const TColStd_Array1OfReal &K)
 Modifies this BSpline curve by assigning the array K to its knots table. The multiplicity of the knots is not modified.

void SetKnot (const Standard_Integer Index, const Standard_Real K, const Standard_Integer M)

void PeriodicNormalization (Standard_Real &U) const
 returns the parameter normalized within the period if the curve is periodic : otherwise does not do anything More...
 
void SetPeriodic ()
 Changes this BSpline curve into a periodic curve. To become periodic, the curve must first be closed. Next, the knot sequence must be periodic. For this, FirstUKnotIndex and LastUKnotIndex are used to compute I1 and I2, the indexes in the knots array of the knots corresponding to the first and last parameters of this BSpline curve. The period is therefore: Knots(I2) - Knots(I1). Consequently, the knots and poles tables are modified. Exceptions Standard_ConstructionError if this BSpline curve is not closed. More...
 
void SetOrigin (const Standard_Integer Index)
 Assigns the knot of index Index in the knots table as the origin of this periodic BSpline curve. As a consequence, the knots and poles tables are modified. Exceptions Standard_NoSuchObject if this curve is not periodic. Standard_DomainError if Index is outside the bounds of the knots table. More...
 
void SetOrigin (const Standard_Real U, const Standard_Real Tol)
 Set the origin of a periodic curve at Knot U. If U is not a knot of the BSpline a new knot is inseted. KnotVector and poles are modified. Raised if the curve is not periodic. More...
 
void SetNotPeriodic ()
 Changes this BSpline curve into a non-periodic curve. If this curve is already non-periodic, it is not modified. Note: the poles and knots tables are modified. Warning If this curve is periodic, as the multiplicity of the first and last knots is not modified, and is not equal to Degree + 1, where Degree is the degree of this BSpline curve, the start and end points of the curve are not its first and last poles. More...
 
void SetPole (const Standard_Integer Index, const gp_Pnt &P)
 Modifies this BSpline curve by assigning P to the pole of index Index in the poles table. Exceptions Standard_OutOfRange if Index is outside the bounds of the poles table. Standard_ConstructionError if Weight is negative or null. More...
 
void SetPole (const Standard_Integer Index, const gp_Pnt &P, const Standard_Real Weight)
 Modifies this BSpline curve by assigning P to the pole of index Index in the poles table. This syntax also allows you to modify the weight of the modified pole, which becomes Weight. In this case, if this BSpline curve is non-rational, it can become rational and vice versa. Exceptions Standard_OutOfRange if Index is outside the bounds of the poles table. Standard_ConstructionError if Weight is negative or null. More...
 
void SetWeight (const Standard_Integer Index, const Standard_Real Weight)
 Changes the weight for the pole of range Index. If the curve was non rational it can become rational. If the curve was rational it can become non rational. More...
 
void MovePoint (const Standard_Real U, const gp_Pnt &P, const Standard_Integer Index1, const Standard_Integer Index2, Standard_Integer &FirstModifiedPole, Standard_Integer &LastModifiedPole)
 Moves the point of parameter U of this BSpline curve to P. Index1 and Index2 are the indexes in the table of poles of this BSpline curve of the first and last poles designated to be moved. FirstModifiedPole and LastModifiedPole are the indexes of the first and last poles which are effectively modified. In the event of incompatibility between Index1, Index2 and the value U: More...

 Move a point with parameter U to P. and makes it tangent at U be Tangent. StartingCondition = -1 means first can move EndingCondition = -1 means last point can move StartingCondition = 0 means the first point cannot move EndingCondition = 0 means the last point cannot move StartingCondition = 1 means the first point and tangent cannot move EndingCondition = 1 means the last point and tangent cannot move and so forth ErrorStatus != 0 means that there are not enought degree of freedom with the constrain to deform the curve accordingly.

For a B-spline curve of degree d if a knot Ui has a multiplicity p the B-spline curve is only Cd-p continuous at Ui. So the global continuity of the curve can't be greater than Cd-p where p is the maximum multiplicity of the interior Knots. In the interior of a knot span the curve is infinitely continuously differentiable. More...

void KnotSequence (TColStd_Array1OfReal &K) const
 Returns K, the knots sequence of this BSpline curve. In this sequence, knots with a multiplicity greater than 1 are repeated. In the case of a non-periodic curve the length of the sequence must be equal to the sum of the NbKnots multiplicities of the knots of the curve (where NbKnots is the number of knots of this BSpline curve). This sum is also equal to : NbPoles + Degree + 1 where NbPoles is the number of poles and Degree the degree of this BSpline curve. In the case of a periodic curve, if there are k periodic knots, the period is Knot(k+1) - Knot(1). The initial sequence is built by writing knots 1 to k+1, which are repeated according to their corresponding multiplicities. If Degree is the degree of the curve, the degree of continuity of the curve at the knot of index 1 (or k+1) is equal to c = Degree + 1 - Mult(1). c knots are then inserted at the beginning and end of the initial sequence: More...

Detailed Description

Definition of the B_spline curve. A B-spline curve can be Uniform or non-uniform Rational or non-rational Periodic or non-periodic.

a b-spline curve is defined by : its degree; the degree for a Geom_BSplineCurve is limited to a value (25) which is defined and controlled by the system. This value is returned by the function MaxDegree;

const TColStd_Array1OfReal Knots,
const TColStd_Array1OfInteger Multiplicities,
const Standard_Integer  Degree,
const Standard_Boolean  Periodic = Standard_False 
)

Creates a non-rational B_spline curve on the basis <Knots, Multiplicities> of degree <Degree>.

◆ Geom_BSplineCurve() [2/2]

Geom_BSplineCurve::Geom_BSplineCurve ( const TColgp_Array1OfPnt Poles,
const TColStd_Array1OfReal Weights,
const TColStd_Array1OfReal Knots,
const TColStd_Array1OfInteger Multiplicities,
const Standard_Integer  Degree,
const Standard_Boolean  Periodic = Standard_False,
const Standard_Boolean  CheckRational = Standard_True 
)

Creates a rational B_spline curve on the basis <Knots, Multiplicities> of degree <Degree>. Raises ConstructionError subject to the following conditions 0 < Degree <= MaxDegree.

Weights.Length() == Poles.Length()

Knots.Length() == Mults.Length() >= 2

Knots(i) < Knots(i+1) (Knots are increasing)

1 <= Mults(i) <= Degree

On a non periodic curve the first and last multiplicities may be Degree+1 (this is even recommanded if you want the curve to start and finish on the first and last pole).

On a periodic curve the first and the last multicities must be the same.

on non-periodic curves

Poles.Length() == Sum(Mults(i)) - Degree - 1 >= 2

on periodic curves

Poles.Length() == Sum(Mults(i)) except the first or last

◆ Continuity()

GeomAbs_Shape Geom_BSplineCurve::Continuity ( ) const
overridevirtual

Returns the global continuity of the curve : C0 : only geometric continuity, C1 : continuity of the first derivative all along the Curve, C2 : continuity of the second derivative all along the Curve, C3 : continuity of the third derivative all along the Curve, CN : the order of continuity is infinite. For a B-spline curve of degree d if a knot Ui has a multiplicity p the B-spline curve is only Cd-p continuous at Ui. So the global continuity of the curve can't be greater than Cd-p where p is the maximum multiplicity of the interior Knots. In the interior of a knot span the curve is infinitely continuously differentiable.

◆ Degree()

Standard_Integer Geom_BSplineCurve::Degree ( ) const

◆ DN()

gp_Vec Geom_BSplineCurve::DN ( const Standard_Real  U,
const Standard_Integer  N 
) const
overridevirtual

For the point of parameter U of this BSpline curve, computes the vector corresponding to the Nth derivative. Warning On a point where the continuity of the curve is not the one requested, this function impacts the part defined by the parameter with a value greater than U, i.e. the part of the curve to the "right" of the singularity. Exceptions Standard_RangeError if N is less than 1.

The following functions compute the point of parameter U and the derivatives at this point on the B-spline curve arc defined between the knot FromK1 and the knot ToK2. U can be out of bounds [Knot (FromK1), Knot (ToK2)] but for the computation we only use the definition of the curve between these two knots. This method is useful to compute local derivative, if the order of continuity of the whole curve is not greater enough. Inside the parametric domain Knot (FromK1), Knot (ToK2) the evaluations are the same as if we consider the whole definition of the curve. Of course the evaluations are different outside this parametric domain.

◆ Knots() [1/2]

void Geom_BSplineCurve::Knots ( TColStd_Array1OfReal K) const

◆ KnotSequence() [1/2]

void Geom_BSplineCurve::KnotSequence ( TColStd_Array1OfReal K) const

Returns K, the knots sequence of this BSpline curve. In this sequence, knots with a multiplicity greater than 1 are repeated. In the case of a non-periodic curve the length of the sequence must be equal to the sum of the NbKnots multiplicities of the knots of the curve (where NbKnots is the number of knots of this BSpline curve). This sum is also equal to : NbPoles + Degree + 1 where NbPoles is the number of poles and Degree the degree of this BSpline curve. In the case of a periodic curve, if there are k periodic knots, the period is Knot(k+1) - Knot(1). The initial sequence is built by writing knots 1 to k+1, which are repeated according to their corresponding multiplicities. If Degree is the degree of the curve, the degree of continuity of the curve at the knot of index 1 (or k+1) is equal to c = Degree + 1 - Mult(1). c knots are then inserted at the beginning and end of the initial sequence:

  • the c values of knots preceding the first item Knot(k+1) in the initial sequence are inserted at the beginning; the period is subtracted from these c values;
  • the c values of knots following the last item Knot(1) in the initial sequence are inserted at the end; the period is added to these c values. The length of the sequence must therefore be equal to: NbPoles + 2*Degree - Mult(1) + 2. Example For a non-periodic BSpline curve of degree 2 where:
  • the array of knots is: { k1 k2 k3 k4 },
  • with associated multiplicities: { 3 1 2 3 }, the knot sequence is: K = { k1 k1 k1 k2 k3 k3 k4 k4 k4 } For a periodic BSpline curve of degree 4 , which is "C1" continuous at the first knot, and where :
  • the periodic knots are: { k1 k2 k3 (k4) } (3 periodic knots: the points of parameter k1 and k4 are identical, the period is p = k4 - k1),
  • with associated multiplicities: { 3 1 2 (3) }, the degree of continuity at knots k1 and k4 is: Degree + 1 - Mult(i) = 2. 2 supplementary knots are added at the beginning and end of the sequence:
  • at the beginning: the 2 knots preceding k4 minus the period; in this example, this is k3 - p both times;
  • at the end: the 2 knots following k1 plus the period; in this example, this is k2 + p and k3 + p. The knot sequence is therefore: K = { k3-p k3-p k1 k1 k1 k2 k3 k3 k4 k4 k4 k2+p k3+p } Exceptions Raised if K.Lower() is less than number of first knot in knot sequence with repetitions or K.Upper() is more than number of last knot in knot sequence with repetitions.

Two different algorithms are systematically used to compute the new poles of the curve. If, for each pole, the distance between the pole calculated using the first algorithm and the same pole calculated using the second algorithm, is less than Tolerance, this ensures that the curve is not modified by more than Tolerance. Under these conditions, true is returned; otherwise, false is returned. A low tolerance is used to prevent modification of the curve. A high tolerance is used to "smooth" the curve. Exceptions Standard_OutOfRange if Index is outside the bounds of the knots table. pole insertion and pole removing this operation is limited to the Uniform or QuasiUniform BSplineCurve.

All data structure tables of this BSpline curve are modified, but the knots located between U1 and U2 are retained. The degree of the curve is not modified.

Parameter theTolerance defines the possible proximity of the segment boundaries and B-spline knots to treat them as equal.

Warnings : Even if <me> is not closed it can become closed after the segmentation for example if U1 or U2 are out of the bounds of the curve <me> or if the curve makes loop. After the segmentation the length of a curve can be null. raises if U2 < U1. Standard_DomainError if U2 - U1 exceeds the period for periodic curves. i.e. ((U2 - U1) - Period) > Precision::PConfusion().

Set the origin of a periodic curve at Knot U. If U is not a knot of the BSpline a new knot is inseted. KnotVector and poles are modified. Raised if the curve is not periodic.

◆ SetPeriodic()

void Geom_BSplineCurve::SetPeriodic ( )

Changes this BSpline curve into a periodic curve. To become periodic, the curve must first be closed. Next, the knot sequence must be periodic. For this, FirstUKnotIndex and LastUKnotIndex are used to compute I1 and I2, the indexes in the knots array of the knots corresponding to the first and last parameters of this BSpline curve. The period is therefore: Knots(I2) - Knots(I1). Consequently, the knots and poles tables are modified. Exceptions Standard_ConstructionError if this BSpline curve is not closed.

◆ SetPole() [1/2]

void Geom_BSplineCurve::SetPole ( const Standard_Integer  Index,
