: public Ifc4x2::IfcConic¶ Definition from ISO/CD 1030342:1992: An ellipse (IfcEllipse) is a conic section defined by the lengths of the semimajor and semiminor diameters and the position (center or mid point of the line joining the foci) and orientation of the curve. Interpretation of the data shall be as follows:
C = SELF\IfcConic.Position.Location
x = SELF\IfcConic.Position.P[1]
y = SELF\IfcConic.Position.P[2]
z = SELF\IfcConic.Position.P[3]
R1 = SemiAxis1 R2 = SemiAxis2 and the ellipse is parameterized as:
The parameterization range is 0 £ u £ 2p (or 0 £ u £ 360 degree). In the placement coordinate system defined above, the ellipse is the equation C = 0, where
The positive sense of the ellipse at any point is in the tangent direction, T, to the curve at the point, where
The inherited Position.Location from IfcConic is the center of the IfcEllipse, and the inherited Position.P[1] from IfcConic the direction of the SemiAxis1.
NOTE Corresponding ISO 10303 entity: ellipse. Please refer to ISO/IS 1030342:1994, p. 39 for the final definition of the formal standard.
HISTORY New class in IFC Release 1.0
