The open profile IfcArbitraryOpenProfileDef defines an arbitrary two-dimensional open profile for the use within the swept surface geometry. It is given by an open boundary from which the surface can be constructed.
- The Curve has to be an open curve.
Figure 22.214.171.124.A illustrates the arbitrary open profile definition. The Curve is defined in the underlying coordinate system. The underlying coordinate system is defined by the swept surface that uses the profile definition. It is the xy plane of:
The Curve attribute defines a two dimensional open bounded curve.
Defines the type of geometry into which this profile definition shall be resolved, either a curve or a surface area. In case of curve the profile should be referenced by a swept surface, in case of area the profile should be referenced by a swept area solid.
Human-readable name of the profile, for example according to a standard profile table. As noted above, machine-readable standardized profile designations should be provided in IfcExternalReference.ItemReference.

Open bounded curve defining the profile.
The profile type is a .CURVE., an open profile can only be used to define a swept surface.
The dimensionality of the curve shall be 2.
