IfcExtrudedAreaSolidTapered
: public Ifc4x1::IfcExtrudedAreaSolid¶ IfcExtrudedAreaSolidTapered is defined by sweeping a cross section along a linear spine. The cross section may change along the sweep from the shape of the start cross section into the shape of the end cross section. The resulting solid is bounded by three or more faces: A start face, an end face (each defined by start and end planes and sections), and one or more lateral faces. Each lateral face is a ruled surface defined by a pair of corresponding edges of the start and end section. NOTE Given that the start and end section is provided by a polygon, the corresponding vertices of the start and end cross section are connected, forming a quadrilateral polygon between each pair of corresponding vertices. The surface defined by the bounding quadrilateral polygon is a ruled surface, that could be approximated by triangulation. The linear spine is defined by:
Start point: SELF\IfcSweptAreaSolid.Position.Location Direction: SELF\IfcExtrudedAreaSolid.ExtrudedDirection Distance: SELF\IfcExtrudedAreaSolid.Depth
The start cross section is defined by SELF\IfcSweptAreaSolid.SweptArea:
A bounded planar surface lying in the XY plane of the position coordinate system defined by SELF\IfcSweptAreaSolid.Position.P[1] and SELF\IfcSweptAreaSolid.Position.P[2] The linear spine starts at the plane of the start cross section. The spine is not necessarily perpendicular to the plane.
The end cross section is defined by EndSweptArea:
A bounded planar surface lying in the XY plane of the position coordinate system defined by translating the start position coordinates provided by SELF\IfcSweptAreaSolid.Position along the spine direction by the spine distance. The plane of the end cross section is coplanar to the plane of the start cross section.
The end cross section is topologically similar to the start cross section (i.e. having the same number of vertices and edges). The end cross section can either be defined by the same paramteric profile using different parameter values, or by a 2D Cartesian transformation of the start profile within the end cross section plane.
In case of two parameterized profiles the shape is constructed as follows:
The end profile, defined by a cross section based on the same profile paramterization as the start profile, is translated by the spine distance along the spine direction. It may be shifted within the XY plane of the end postion coordinate system and may be twisted using the rotation parameter. The shift and rotation parameter are provided by the end cross section being of type IfcParameterizedProfileDef, where
Shift is EndSweptArea\IfcParameterizedProfileDef.Position.Location Rotation is EndSweptArea\IfcParameterizedProfileDef.Position.RefDirection
Corresponding vertices of the start and end cross section are connected. Lateral faces are constructed as ruled surfaces between corresponding edges of start and end cross section.
In case of Cartesian transformation of the start cross section the shape is constructed as follows:
The cross section curve, which starts as a curve in the XY plane of the position coordinate system, is first scaled about the origin by the scale parameter. It is then translated by the spine distance along the spine direction. It maybe twisted by using the rotation parameter. The scale and rotation parameter are provided by the end cross section being of type IfcDerivedProfileDef, where
Scale is EndSweptArea\IfcDerivedProfileDef.Operator.Scale Rotation is EndSweptArea\IfcDerivedProfileDef.Operator.Axis1
Corresponding vertices of the start and end cross section are connected. Lateral faces are constructed as ruled surfaces between corresponding edges of start and end cross section.

::Ifc4x1::IfcProfileDef *
EndSweptArea
() const¶ The surface defining the end of the swept area. It is given as a profile definition. The position coordinate system of the EndSwptArea is generated by translating the SELF\IfcSweptAreaSolid.Position along the SELF\IfcExtrudedAreaSolid.ExtrudedDirection by the distance of SELF\IfcExtrudedAreaSolid.Depth.
