IFC (IFC4X3_TC1) IfcIndexedPolygonalTextureMap Semantic definition

The IfcIndexedPolygonalTextureMap provides the mapping of the 2-dimensional texture coordinates to a set of polygonal bounded faces onto which it is mapped. It is used for mapping the texture to faces of an IfcPolygonalFaceSet. Such faces may have inner loops.

The TexCoords defined at supertype IfcIndexedTextureMap are a two-dimensional list of texture coordinates providing two parameter values for each indexed texture vertex. The set of TexCoordIndices provides the texture coordinates for the list of IfcIndexedPolygonalFace referred to via MappedTo.Faces. The texture coordinates at each IfcTextureCoordinateIndices correspond to the vertex points at the referenced IfcIndexedPolygonalFace. See also Figure for further explanation.

Figure shows how to use IfcIndexedPolygonalTextureMap to provide the texture and texture coordinates for IfcPolygonalFaceSet.
