8.18.3.14 IfcRigidOperation

8.18.3.14.1 Semantic definition

A rigid operation specifies an offset in the coordinate reference system. It does not specify any conversion or distortion. It is a coordinate operation that tells that the whole virtual model is translated in the same way. For example, using lengths to translate along x,y,z; or using angles for a 2D translation (e.g., lambda, phi), plus a change in height.

IfcRigidOperation (3)
3 FirstCoordinate IfcMeasureValue

The first coordinate of the translation. Can be a length measure in case of map coordinates or a plane angle measure in case of geographic reference systems.

4 SecondCoordinate IfcMeasureValue

The second coordinate of the translation. Can be a length measure in case of map coordinates or a plane angle measure in case of geographic reference systems.

5 Height OPTIONAL IfcLengthMeasure

Translation above (positive) or below (negative) the coordinate surface.

8.18.3.14.4 Formal propositions

Name Description
SameCoordinateType

Restricts the value type of FirstCoordinate and SecondCoordinate to IfcLengthMeasure or IfcPlaneAngleMeasure and asserts the same type is used for both.

(('IFC4X3_DEV_d543ff3.IFCLENGTHMEASURE' IN TYPEOF(FirstCoordinate)) AND ('IFC4X3_DEV_d543ff3.IFCLENGTHMEASURE' IN TYPEOF(SecondCoordinate))) OR (('IFC4X3_DEV_d543ff3.IFCPLANEANGLEMEASURE' IN TYPEOF(FirstCoordinate)) AND ('IFC4X3_DEV_d543ff3.IFCPLANEANGLEMEASURE' IN TYPEOF(SecondCoordinate)))
