Dotting fill pattern descriptor.
Drawing a shape can be done by filling its drawn face using a dotted pattern (alternative ways could be using a texture or a solid color, for example). This technique is generally associated with halftone pattern, which consists in simulating continuous tone through dots.
A3DGraphDottingPatternDatais one of the four fill pattern provided by HOOPS. It is associated to the
kA3DTypeGraphDottingPatternentity type. The other available fill patterns are
- Pattern description
This descriptor is used to represent an axis-aligned grid of dots, each of them being spaced by a distance of
m_dPitch, horizontally and vertically. When
m_bZigZagis true, dots are appear within a staggered layout, where every other line is horizontaly shifted by half
- Pattern layers
Implementations can express complex patterns by chaining them in order, using the
