126.96.36.199.1 Semantic definition
The IfcAxis2PlacementLinear provides location and orientation to place items in a three-dimensional space confined to the context of a curve. Relative placement axes (Axis and RefDirection) are relative to the curve used for linear referencing provided in IfcPlacement Location (IfcPointByDistanceExpression BasisCurve), maintaining the relationship to the tangent of the curve.
188.8.131.52.2 Entity inheritance
|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.
|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.
The geometric position of a reference point, such as the center of a circle, of the item to be located.
This attribute is formally derived.
The space dimensionality of this class, derived from the dimensionality of the location.

The exact direction of the local Z Axis.
The direction used to determine the direction of the local X Axis. In case both Axis and RefDirection are set and not perpendicular an adjustment is necessary to maintain orthogonality to the Axis direction. If RefDirection is omitted, the direction is taken from the curve tangent at Location.
184.108.40.206.4 Formal propositions
The Location on parent type IfcPlacement shall be of type IfcPointByDistanceExpression
The Axis and RefDirection shall not be parallel or anti-parallel.
