IFC (IFC4X3_TC1) IfcSineSpiral Semantic definition

A type of spiral curve for which the curvature change is dependent on the sine function. It is also known as the Klein curve.

The curvature is defined as:

K = K0 (s LinearTerm - 1/2&pi sin2&pi/SineTerm) 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.
