Export SCS Module

Detailed Description

group a3d_publishhtml_scs_module

(HOOPS Publish Advanced) Structure and function to write a ModelFile as a SCS stream cache file.

SCS is the Stream Cache Single file format used in HOOPS Communicator to hold the representation of a CAD model. A SCS file is later expected to be referred by a HTML file. This format stores the tessellated geometry, the assembly tree and all non-tessellation related data: PMI, views, user attributes, etc. Also, exact measurement data can be optionally added to the SCS file to store geometrical information useful for measurement tool, such as cylinder and radius data on faces or edges. This measurement information can take time to be computed and should only be added on purpose to handle measurement scenarios.
