LineString3d Class

  • A LineString3d (sometimes called a PolyLine) is a sequence of xyz coordinates that are to be joined by line segments.
  • The point coordinates are stored in a GrowableXYZArray, not as full point objects
  • The parameterization of "fraction along" is
    • In a linestring with N segments (i.e. N+1 points), each segment (regardless of physical length) occupies the same fraction (1/N) of the 0-to-1 fraction space.
    • Within segment i, the fraction interval i/N to (i+1)/N is mapped proportionally to the segment
    • Note that this fraction is therefore NOT fraction of true distance along.
      • Use moveSignedDistanceFromFraction to do true-length evaluations.
