The SbDPPlane class represents a plane in 3D space.

SbDPPlane is used by many other classes in Coin. It provides a way of representing a plane, specified by a plane normal vector and a distance from the origin of the coordinate system.

Be aware that this class is an extension for Coin, and it is not available in the original SGI Open Inventor v2.1 API.

- Since
- Coin 2.0

SbDPPlane::SbDPPlane | ( | void | ) |

An SbDPPlane instantiated with the default constructor will be uninitialized.

SbDPPlane::SbDPPlane | ( | const SbVec3d & | normalref, |

const double | D |
||

) |

Construct an SbDPPlane instance with a normal pointing in the given direction and the given shortest distance from the origin of the coordinate system to a point in the plane.

*normal* must not be a null vector.

Construct an SbDPPlane with three points laying in the plane. Make sure *p0*, *p1* and *p2* are actually three distinct points when using this constructor.

Construct an SbDPPlane from a normal and a point laying in the plane.

*normal* must not be a null vector.

void SbDPPlane::offset | ( | const double | d | ) |

Add the given offset *d* to the plane distance from the origin.

Find the point on given line *l* intersecting the plane and return it in *intersection*. If the line is parallel to the plane, we return `FALSE`

, otherwise `TRUE`

.

Do not pass an invalid line for the *l* parameter (i.e. with a null direction vector).

void SbDPPlane::transform | ( | const SbDPMatrix & | matrix | ) |

Transform the plane by *matrix*.

- offset()

SbBool SbDPPlane::isInHalfSpace | ( | const SbVec3d & | point | ) | const |

Check if the given point lies in the halfspace of the plane which the plane normal vector is pointing.

double SbDPPlane::getDistance | ( | const SbVec3d & | point | ) | const |

Return the distance from *point* to plane. Positive distance means the point is in the plane's half space.

This method is an extension specific to Coin versus the original SGI Inventor API.

const SbVec3d & SbDPPlane::getNormal | ( | void | ) | const |

Return the plane's normal vector, which indicates which direction the plane is oriented.

- See also
- getDistanceFromOrigin().

double SbDPPlane::getDistanceFromOrigin | ( | void | ) | const |

Return distance from origin of coordinate system to the point in the plane which is closest to the origin.

- See also
- getNormal().

void SbDPPlane::print | ( | FILE * | fp | ) | const |

Dump the state of this object to the *file* stream. Only works in debug version of library, method does nothing in an optimized build.

Intersect this plane with *pl*, and return the resulting line in *line*. Returns `TRUE`

if an intersection line can be found, and `FALSE`

if the planes are parallel.

This function is an extension for Coin, and it is not available in the original SGI Open Inventor v2.1 API.

- Since
- Coin 2.0

Check the two given planes for equality.

Check the two given planes for unequality.
