Curves in the GeometryQuery hierarchy: LineSegment3d, LineString3d, Arc3d, TransitionSpiral3d

  • CurvePrimitive -- base class for parametric curves
  • LineSegment3d -- a (bounded) portion of an unbounded line
  • Arc3d -- a circular or elliptic arc
  • LineString3d -- a sequence of points joined by line segments
  • TransitionSpiral -- controlled transition between curvatures
  • Support classes
  • PointString3d -- a sequence of isolated points
  • StrokeOptions -- tolerances to describe stroking accuracy
  • RecursiveCurveProcessor, RecursiveCurveProcessorWithStack -- algorithmic support for trees with CurvePrimitives at the leaf level.
