Detailed Description

IGES 108 : Plane.

Spec : IGES 5.3 page 87

The plane entity can be used to represent an unbounded plane, as well as a bounded portion of a plane. In either of the above cases, the plane is defined within definition space by means of the coefficients A, B, C, D, where at least one of A, B, and C is nonzero and A·XT + B·YT + C·ZT = D for each point lying in the plane, and having definition space coordinates (XT, YT, ZT). The definition space coordinates of a point, as well as a size parameter, can be specified in order to assist in defining a system-dependent display symbol. These values are parameter data entries six through nine, respectively. This information, together with the four coefficients defining the plane, provides sufficient information relative to definition space in order to be able to position the display symbol. (In the unbounded plane example of Figure 23, the curves and the crosshair together constitute the display symbol.) Defaulting, or setting the size parameter to zero, indicates that a display symbol is not intended. The case of a bounded portion of a fixed plane requires the existence of a pointer to a simple closed curve lying in the plane. This is parameter five. The only allowed coincident points for this curve are the start point and the terminate point. The case of an unbounded plane requires this pointer to be zero.
