Class PoTube

  • All Implemented Interfaces:

    public class PoTube
    extends PoCurveLine
    Class to build a 2D tube curve. Builds a 2D tube curve on 1D mesh (PoIrregularMesh1D or PoRegularMesh1D). The abscissas of the tube are given by the geometry of the current mesh 1D, and the ordinates are given by one of the value-set of the current mesh 1D specified by the field yValuesIndex. The thickness of the tube is specified by the field thicknessIndex which is an index of a value-set of the current mesh 1D. These values are multiplied by the field width. If thicknessIndex == -1, the thickness of the tube is the value of the field width. The shape of the profile is given by the current profile (PoProfile and its derived nodes). The profile must be defined in the plane ZY. Profiles can be beveled according to the current beveled edge values (PoBeveledEdge). The current complexity (SoComplexity) is used to determine the tessellation of the current profile.

    This class also takes into account of the current mesh 1D hints (PoMesh1DHints).

    The interpretation of colorBinding is the following :

    • INHERITED: The entire tube is colored with the same inherited color.
    • PER_PART : Each part of the tube is colored with the same color. A part is the tube between two abscissas defined by the current mesh 1D.
    • PER_VERTEX: A color is used at each vertex of the tube.

    File format/default:

    PoTube {

      colorBinding INHERITED
      yValuesIndex 0
      colorValuesIndex 1
      material NULL
      thicknessIndex -1
      thicknessBinding PER_VERTEX_THICKNESS
      thicknessFactor 1.0
