Geometric Representation Item | |

Item de représentation géométrique |

An IfcGeometricRepresentationItem is the common supertype of all geometric items used within a representation. It is positioned within a geometric coordinate system, directly or indirectly through intervening items.

NOTE Definition according to ISO/CD 10303-42:1992

An geometric representation item is a representation item that has the additional meaning of having geometric position or orientation or both. This meaning is present by virtue of:

- being a Cartesian point or a direction
- referencing directly a Cartesian point or direction
- referencing indirectly a Cartesian point or direction
An indirect reference to a Cartesian point or direction means that a given geometric item references the Cartesian point or direction through one or more intervening geometry or topology items.

EXAMPLE 1 Consider a circle. It gains its geometric position and orientation by virtue of a reference to axis2_placement (IfcAxis2Placement) that is turn references a cartesian_point (IfcCartesianPoint) and several directions (IfcDirection).EXAMPLE 2 Consider a manifold brep. A manifold_solid_brep (IfcManifoldSolidBrep) is a geometric_representation_item (IfcGeometricRepresentationItem) that through several layers of topological_representation_item's (IfcTopologicalRepresentationItem) references poly loops (IfcPolyLoop). Through additional intervening entities poly loops reference cartesian_point's (IfcCartesianPoint).
