The IfcTextureCoordinate is an abstract supertype of the different kinds to apply texture coordinates to geometries. For vertex based geometries an explicit assignment of 2D texture vertices to the 3D geometry points is supported by the subtype IfcTextureMap, in addition there can be a procedural description of how texture coordinates shall be applied to geometric items. If no IfcTextureCoordinate is provided for the IfcSurfaceTexture, the default mapping shall be used.
NOTE See relevant subtypes of IfcGeometricRepresentationItem for default texture mapping description.
NOTE The definitions of texturing has been adapted from X3D Architecture and base components, section 18 Texturing component as defined in ISO/IEC 19775-1.2
HISTORY New entity in IFC2x2.
