Detailed Description

Creates a scene node and its children from input data model objects.

The factory supports various input types to create scene nodes from:

  • Entire ModelData_Model;
  • Assembly, part or instance;
  • B-Rep or polygonal representation.
  • Individual body inside B-Rep representation;
  • Individual mesh (triangle set, polyline set or point set).

The following example demonstrates creating a scene from the entire model. Note that if the model has multiple roots then resulting scene nodes will be children of a single root scene node:

ModelData_Model aModel = …;
ModelPrs_GeometryFactory aFactory (ModelData_RM_BRep);
ModelPrs_SceneNode aRootNode = aFactory.Create (aModel);
ModelPrs_Scene aScene;
aScene.AddRoot (aRootNode);

The following example demonstrates creating a scene for a single B-Rep solid:

ModelData_Solid aSphere = ModelAlgo_TopoPrimitives::CreateSphere (5.);
ModelData_Body aBody = ModelData_Body::Create (aSphere);
ModelPrs_Scene aRootNode2 = aFactory.Create (aBody);

Scene nodes for B-Rep shapes

Given that B-Rep sub-shapes may only refer to meta-data (such as visual appearances) in the context of B-Rep representation that own them, specifying that owning B-Rep representation is important when creating a node. Consider an example of a B-Rep solid with three colored faces:

ModelData_Solid aBox = ModelAlgo_TopoPrimitives::CreateBox (10., 20., 30.);
ModelData_Body aBody = ModelData_Body::Create (aBox);
ModelData_BRepRepresentation aBRep (aBody);
ModelData_Shape::Iterator anIt (aBox);
auto aF1 = anIt.Next();
auto aF2 = anIt.Next();
auto aF3 = anIt.Next();
aBRep.SetAppearance (aF1, ModelData_Color (1.f, 0.f, 0.f);
aBRep.SetAppearance (aF2, ModelData_Color (0.f, 1.f, 0.f);
aBRep.SetAppearance (aF3, ModelData_Color (0.f, 0.f, 1.f);

In order to transmit these attributes to the scene nodes the owning B-Rep representation must be specified:

auto aNode = aFactory.Create (aBody, aBRep);

If the B-Rep representation is not provided then the appearance will be lost:

auto aNode2 = aFactory.Create (aBody);

The results are shown on the following screenshots:

Body with owning B-Rep
Body without owning B-Rep

Of course, to achieve an equivalent correct result the factory could be simply used as follows:

auto aNode = aFactory.Create (aBRep);

Factory Parameters

The factory supports various parameters (encapsulated in ModelPrs_SceneNodeFactoryParameters) that affect which internal data elements are selected to create a scene node.

The following example demonstrates selection of different representations from a part as well as distinct “grouping/ungrouping” preferences.

Imagine a part that contains both B-Rep and polygonal representations, and each contains multiple sub-elements (B-Rep bodies or PolyVertexSet’s respectively):

Part with two representations

Using default and custom factory parameters may result in distinct resulting scene nodes:

ModelData_Part aPart = ...;
ModelPrs_SceneNodeFactory aDefaultFactory;
ModelPrs_SceneNodeFactory aCustomFactory ({ModelData_RM_BRep, true});
auto aFirstRoot = aDefaultFactory.Create (aPart);
auto aSecondRoot = aCustomFactory.Create (aPart);

The following figures demonstrate scene nodes constructed in the above example:

Scene node constructed with default factory parameters
Scene node constructed with custom factory

A scene node factory contains a shared pointer to its internal implementation, so simple copying an object will just copy a shared pointer. Therefore any modification of the copied object will propagate to original object.
