PolyfaceBuilder Remarks

A PolyfaceBuilder constructs coordinate and index data for an IndexedPolyface.

A caller creates a builder and then calls various methods to add to the evolving polyface.

There are 3 levels of detail for builder methods:

Level Input type Example Actions
High GeometryQuery object addGeometryQuery addBox addCone addSphere addTorusPipe add LinearSweep addRotationalSweep addRuledSweep addPolygon addIndexedPolyface call mid- or low- level methods for major parts (sides, caps) of the geometry query.
mid Single-parameter space portions addUVGrid addBetweenLineStrings addBetweenStroked addBetweenTransformedLineStrings addGraph enumerate quad and triangles in the grid/circle/polygon
single or structured facet single facet addIndexedQuadNormalIndexes addIndexedQuadParamIndexes addIndexedQuadPointIndexes addIndexedTriangleNormalIndexes addIndexedTriangleParamIndexes addIndexedTrianglePointIndexes addTriangleFan addTrianglesInUncheckedFan addTriangleFanFromIndex0 multiple inserts to arrays
array entry single datum for array findOrAddPoint findorAddPointInLineString findOrAddPointXYZ
