Syntax
public abstract class SoShape : SoNode

Public methodBeginShape(SoAction, SoShapeTriangleShapes, SoFaceDetail)

These methods can be used by subclasses to generate triangles more easily when those triangles are part of a larger structure, such as a triangle strip, triangle fan, or triangulated polygon, according to the TriangleShape enumerated type.

Public methodCallback

Implements primitive generation for all shapes.

(Overrides SoNodeCallback(SoCallbackAction).)
Public methodComputeBBox(SoAction, SbBox3f, SbVec3f)

Public methodComputeBBox(SoAction, SbXfBox3d, SbVec3d)

Compute object oriented bounding box (OOB) for subclass using information in the given action (which may not necessarily be an OIV.Inventor.Actions.SoGetBoundingBoxAction).

Public methodEndShape

end shape previously started with OIV.Inventor.Nodes.SoShape.BeginShape(OIV.Inventor.Actions.SoAction, OIV.Inventor.Nodes.SoShape.TriangleShapes, OIV.Inventor.Details.SoFaceDetail).

Public methodGetAlternateRep

This method is called by actions to allow the node to provide an "alternate representation" when appropriate (typically depending on the action type).

(Inherited from SoNode.)
Public methodGetBoundingBox

Implements bounding box method using virtual OIV.Inventor.Nodes.SoShape.ComputeBBox(OIV.Inventor.Actions.SoAction, OIV.Inventor.SbBox3f@, OIV.Inventor.SbVec3f@) method.

(Overrides SoNodeGetBoundingBox(SoGetBoundingBoxAction).)

Returns the name of the given field in the fieldName argument.

(Inherited from SoFieldContainer.)

Remarks

This node is the abstract base class for all shape (geometry) nodes. All classes derived from OIV.Inventor.Nodes.SoShape draw geometry during render traversal.

FILE FORMAT/DEFAULT

This is an abstract class. See the reference page of a derived class for the format and default values.
