4.8.1.13.3 Reference Tessellation Geometry

The Reference Tessellation Geometry is the reference representation of the 3D shape of a product by using tessellated models. Being a reference representation it is normally not displayed and it is not used in a voiding relationship.

The following attribute values for the IfcShapeRepresentation holding this geometric representation shall be used:

The following diagram shows the generic classes and relationships used when applying this concept. In addition, concepts may have particular importance to common or standardised industry practices and scenarios. For these specific usage scenarios, the tables below shows a recommended list of general usage patterns that users may adopt.
