Detailed Description

Oriented plane in 3D.

Represents an oriented plane in 3D. This is a lightweight class/datatype that is used for arguments to some Open Inventor objects.


SbVec3f, SbLine

Constructor & Destructor Documentation

SbPlane::SbPlane (  )  [inline]

Default constructor.

The plane is not initialized.

SbPlane::SbPlane ( const SbVec3f p0,
const SbVec3f p1,
const SbVec3f p2 


p0, p1, and p2 represent three points in the plane.

SbPlane::SbPlane ( const SbVec3f normal,
float  distance 


normal is a normal vector and distance is distance from origin to plane along normal vector.

SbPlane::SbPlane ( const SbVec3f normal,
const SbVec3f point 


normal is a normal vector and point is a point in 3-space for the plane to pass through.

Member Function Documentation

float SbPlane::getDistance ( const SbVec3f point  )  const

Returns the distance from a point to plane.

Positive distance means the point is in the plane's half space.

float SbPlane::getDistanceFromOrigin (  )  const [inline]

Returns distance from origin to plane.

const SbVec3f& SbPlane::getNormal (  )  const [inline]

Returns normal vector to plane.

SbBool SbPlane::intersect ( const SbLine l,
SbVec3f intersection 
) const

Intersect line and plane, returning TRUE if there is an intersection, FALSE if line is parallel to plane.

SbBool SbPlane::isInHalfSpace ( const SbVec3f point  )  const

Returns TRUE if the given point is within the half-space defined by the plane.

void SbPlane::offset ( float  d  ) 

Offset a plane by a given distance.

void SbPlane::transform ( const SbMatrix matrix  ) 

Transforms the plane by the given matrix.

Friends And Related Function Documentation

int operator!= ( const SbPlane p1,
const SbPlane p2 
) [friend]

Inequality comparison operator.

int operator== ( const SbPlane p1,
const SbPlane p2 
) [friend]

Equality comparison operator.
