GeomConvert_CompBezierSurfacesToBSplineSurface::GeomConvert_CompBezierSurfacesToBSplineSurface ( const TColGeom_Array2OfBezierSurface Beziers)

Computes all the data needed to build a "C0" continuous BSpline surface equivalent to the grid of adjacent non-rational Bezier surfaces Beziers. Each surface in the Beziers grid becomes a natural patch, limited by knots values, on the BSpline surface whose data is computed. Surfaces in the grid must satisfy the following conditions:

  • Coincident bounding curves between two consecutive surfaces in a row of the Beziers grid must be u-isoparametric bounding curves of these two surfaces.
  • Coincident bounding curves between two consecutive surfaces in a column of the Beziers grid must be v-isoparametric bounding curves of these two surfaces. The BSpline surface whose data is computed has the following characteristics:
  • Its degree in the u (respectively v) parametric direction is equal to that of the Bezier surface which has the highest degree in the u (respectively v) parametric direction in the Beziers grid.
  • It is a "Piecewise Bezier" in both u and v parametric directions, i.e.:
  • the knots are regularly spaced in each parametric direction (i.e. the difference between two consecutive knots is a constant), and
  • all the multiplicities of the surface knots in a given parametric direction are equal to Degree, which is the degree of the BSpline surface in this parametric direction, except for the first and last knots for which the multiplicity is equal to Degree + 1.
  • Coincident bounding curves between two consecutive columns of Bezier surfaces in the Beziers grid become u-isoparametric curves, corresponding to knots values of the BSpline surface.
  • Coincident bounding curves between two consecutive rows of Bezier surfaces in the Beziers grid become v-isoparametric curves corresponding to knots values of the BSpline surface. Use the available consultation functions to access the computed data. This data may be used to construct the BSpline surface. Warning The surfaces in the Beziers grid must be adjacent, i.e. two consecutive Bezier surfaces in the grid (in a row or column) must have a coincident bounding curve. In addition, the location of the parameterization on each of these surfaces (i.e. the relative location of u and v isoparametric curves on the surface) is of importance with regard to the positioning of the surfaces in the Beziers grid. Care must be taken with respect to the above, as these properties are not checked and an error may occur if they are not satisfied. Exceptions Standard_NotImplemented if one of the Bezier surfaces of the Beziers grid is rational.

)

Computes all the data needed to construct a BSpline surface equivalent to the adjacent non-rational Bezier surfaces Beziers grid. Each surface in the Beziers grid becomes a natural patch, limited by knots values, on the BSpline surface whose data is computed. Surfaces in the grid must satisfy the following conditions:

  • Coincident bounding curves between two consecutive surfaces in a row of the Beziers grid must be u-isoparametric bounding curves of these two surfaces.
  • Coincident bounding curves between two consecutive surfaces in a column of the Beziers grid must be v-isoparametric bounding curves of these two surfaces. The BSpline surface whose data is computed has the following characteristics:
  • Its degree in the u (respectively v) parametric direction is equal to that of the Bezier surface which has the highest degree in the u (respectively v) parametric direction in the Beziers grid.
  • Coincident bounding curves between two consecutive columns of Bezier surfaces in the Beziers grid become u-isoparametric curves corresponding to knots values of the BSpline surface.
  • Coincident bounding curves between two consecutive rows of Bezier surfaces in the Beziers grid become v-isoparametric curves corresponding to knots values of the BSpline surface. Knots values of the BSpline surface are given in the two tables:
  • UKnots for the u parametric direction (which corresponds to the order of Bezier surface columns in the Beziers grid), and
  • VKnots for the v parametric direction (which corresponds to the order of Bezier surface rows in the Beziers grid). The dimensions of UKnots (respectively VKnots) must be equal to the number of columns (respectively, rows) of the Beziers grid, plus 1 . UContinuity and VContinuity, which are both defaulted to GeomAbs_C0, specify the required continuity on the BSpline surface. If the required degree of continuity is greater than 0 in a given parametric direction, a deformation is applied locally on the initial surface (as defined by the Beziers grid) to satisfy this condition. This local deformation is not applied however, if it is greater than Tolerance (defaulted to 1.0 e-7). In such cases, the continuity condition is not satisfied, and the function IsDone will return false. A small tolerance value prevents any modification of the surface and a large tolerance value "smoothes" the surface. Use the available consultation functions to access the computed data. This data may be used to construct the BSpline surface. Warning The surfaces in the Beziers grid must be adjacent, i.e. two consecutive Bezier surfaces in the grid (in a row or column) must have a coincident bounding curve. In addition, the location of the parameterization on each of these surfaces (i.e. the relative location of u and v isoparametric curves on the surface) is of importance with regard to the positioning of the surfaces in the Beziers grid. Care must be taken with respect to the above, as these properties are not checked and an error may occur if they are not satisfied. Exceptions Standard_DimensionMismatch:
  • if the number of knots in the UKnots table (i.e. the length of the UKnots array) is not equal to the number of columns of Bezier surfaces in the Beziers grid plus 1, or
  • if the number of knots in the VKnots table (i.e. the length of the VKnots array) is not equal to the number of rows of Bezier surfaces in the Beziers grid, plus 1. Standard_ConstructionError:
  • if UContinuity and VContinuity are not equal to one of the following values: GeomAbs_C0, GeomAbs_C1, GeomAbs_C2 and GeomAbs_C3; or
  • if the number of columns in the Beziers grid is greater than 1, and the required degree of continuity in the u parametric direction is greater than that of the Bezier surface with the highest degree in the u parametric direction (in the Beziers grid), minus 1; or
  • if the number of rows in the Beziers grid is greater than 1, and the required degree of continuity in the v parametric direction is greater than that of the Bezier surface with the highest degree in the v parametric direction (in the Beziers grid), minus 1 . Standard_NotImplemented if one of the Bezier surfaces in the Beziers grid is rational.
