IfcCurveStyleFontAndScaling: public IfcUtil::IfcBaseEntity¶
Definition from ISO/CD 10303-46:1992: A curve style font and scaling is a curve style font and a scalar factor for that font, so that a given curve style font may be applied at various scales.
The IfcCurveStyleFontAndScaling allows for the reuse of the same curve style definition in several sizes. The definition of the CurveFontScale is the scaling of a base curve style pattern to be used as a new or derived curve style pattern.
NOTE The CurveFontScale should not be mixed up with the target plot scale.
An example for IfcCurveStyleFontAndScaling is the sizing of a basic curve style dash pattern ‘dash’ (visible 0.01m, invisible 0.005m) into ‘dash large’ withCurveFontScale = 2 (resulting invisible 0.02m, invisible 0.01m), and into ‘dash small’withCurveFontScale = 0.5 (resulting invisible 0.005m, invisible 0.0025m).
NOTE Corresponding ISO 10303 name: curve_style_font_and_scaling. Please refer to ISO/IS 10303-46:1994 for the final definition of the formal standard.
