Representation Items Module

Detailed Description

group a3d_repitem

Creates and accesses entities that represent Representation items.

Representation item entities define individual objects that are present in a CAD file, such as a bolt, wheel, or table leg.

Multiple representation items are contained within a part definition, which scales and positions the representation items within a 3D space. The result is a 3D part that can be assembled into higher level product occurrences, such as an engine part, car, or table.

An A3DRiRepresentationItem contains a local A3DRiCoordinateSystem. The A3DRiCoordinateSystem coordinate system is expressed relative to the parent product occurrence’s coordinate system (A3DAsmProductOccurrence).

All representation item entities inherit the A3DRiRepresentationItem base class.
