IFC (IFC4X3_ADD1) IfcCartesianPointList2D Semantic definition

The IfcCartesianPointList2D defines an ordered collection of two-dimentional Cartesian points. Each Cartesian point is provided as an two-dimensional point by a fixed list of two coordinates. The attribute CoordList is a two-dimensional list, where

  • first dimension is an unbounded list representing each 2D Cartesian point;
  • second dimension is a fixed list of two list members, where [1] is the x-coordinate, and [2] the y-coordinate of the Cartesian point. Entity inheritance Attributes

# Attribute Type Description
IfcRepresentationItem (2)
LayerAssignment SET [0:1] OF IfcPresentationLayerAssignment FOR AssignedItems

Assignment of the representation item to a single or multiple layer(s). The LayerAssignments can override a LayerAssignments of the IfcRepresentation it is used within the list of Items.

StyledByItem SET [0:1] OF IfcStyledItem FOR Item

Reference to the IfcStyledItem that provides presentation information to the representation, e.g. a curve style, including colour and thickness to a geometric curve.

IfcCartesianPointList2D (2)
1 CoordList LIST [1:?] OF LIST [2:2] OF IfcLengthMeasure

Two-dimensional list of Cartesian points provided by two coordinates.

2 TagList OPTIONAL LIST [1:?] OF IfcLabel

List of tags corresponding to each point that may be used to identify a basis curve according to the Tag attribute at IfcOffsetCurveByDistances. Also used to identify IfcSectionedSolidHorizontal or IfcSectionedSurface shape string lines ("guide curves") when used within an IfcProfileDef curve of type IfcIndexedPolyCurve.
