The IfcOuterBoundaryCurve defines the outer boundary of a bounded surface.
NOTE Definition according to ISO/CD 10303-42:1992
This is a special subtype of boundary curve which has the additional semantics of defining an outer boundary of a surface. No more than one such curve shall be included in the set of boundaries of a curve bounded surface.
NOTE Entity adapted from outer_boundary_curve in ISO 10303-42.
HISTORY New entity in IFC4.
|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.|
> IFC2x3 CHANGE The inverse attribute LayerAssignments has been added.
> IFC4 CHANGE The inverse attribute LayerAssignment has been restricted to max 1. Upward compatibility for file based exchange is guaranteed.
|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.|
> IFC2x3 CHANGE The inverse attribute StyledByItem has been added.
|Dim||INVALID||The space dimensionality of this abstract class, defined differently for all subtypes, i.e. for IfcLine, IfcConic and IfcBoundedCurve.|
|1||Segments||LIST [1:?] OF IfcSegment||The component bounded curves, their transitions and senses. The transition attribute for the last segment defines the transition between the end of the last segment and the start of the first; this transition attribute may take the value discontinuous, which indicates an open curve.|
> NOTE : For IfcGradientCurve and IfcSegmentedReferenceCurve the segments define the interpolation between segment start and and segment end.
|2||SelfIntersect||IfcLogical||Indication of whether the curve intersects itself or not; this is for information only.|
|NSegments||INVALID||The number of component curves.|
|ClosedCurve||INVALID||Indication whether the curve is closed or not; this is derived from the transition code of the last segment.|
|BasisSurface||INVALID||The surface on which the composite curve is defined.|
