PolyfaceBuilder Class

  • Simple construction for strongly typed GeometryQuery objects:

  • Create a builder with builder = PolyfaceBuilder.create()

  • Add GeometryQuery objects:

    • builder.addGeometryQuery(g: GeometryQuery)
    • builder.addCone(cone: Cone)
    • builder.addTorusPipe(surface: TorusPipe)
    • builder.addLinearSweepLineStrings(surface: LinearSweep)
    • builder.addRotationalSweep(surface: RotationalSweep)
    • builder.addLinearSweep(surface: LinearSweep)
    • builder.addRuledSweep(surface: RuledSweep)
    • builder.addSphere(sphere: Sphere)
    • builder.addBox(box: Box)
    • builder.addIndexedPolyface(polyface)
  • Extract with builder.claimPolyface (true)

  • Simple construction for ephemeral constructive data:

  • Create a builder with builder = PolyfaceBuilder.create()

  • Add from fragmentary data:

    • builder.addBetweenLineStrings (linestringA, linestringB, addClosure)
    • builder.addBetweenTransformedLineStrings (curves, transformA, transformB, addClosure)
    • builder.addBetweenStroked (curveA, curveB)
    • builder.addLinearSweepLineStrings (contour, vector)
    • builder.addPolygon (points, numPointsToUse)
    • builder.addTransformedUnitBox (transform)
    • builder.addTriangleFan (conePoint, linestring, toggleOrientation)
    • builder.addTrianglesInUncheckedPolygon (linestring, toggle)
    • builder.addUVGridBody(surface,numU, numV, createFanInCaps)
    • builder.addGraph(Graph, acceptFaceFunction)
  • Extract with builder.claimPolyface(true)

  • Low-level detail construction -- direct use of indices

  • Create a builder with builder = PolyfaceBuilder.create()

  • Add GeometryQuery objects

    • builder.addPoint(point)
    • builder.findOrAddPointInLineString (linestring, index)
    • builder.addPointXYZ(x,y,z)
    • builder.addTriangleFacet (points)
    • builder.addQuadFacet (points)
