IFC (IFC4X3_TC1) IfcSectionedSolid

ABSTRACT This definition may not be instantiated Semantic definition

An IfcSectionedSolid is an abstract base type for solids constructed by sweeping potentially variable cross sections along a directrix. 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.

Name Description

No description available.

SIZEOF(QUERY(temp <* CrossSections | CrossSections[1].ProfileType <> temp.ProfileType)) = 0

The curve entity which is the underlying directrix shall have the dimensionality of 3.

Directrix.Dim = 3

The entity type for each section must be the same.

SIZEOF(QUERY(temp <* CrossSections | TYPEOF(CrossSections[1]) :<>: TYPEOF(temp))) = 0
