Types of importable objects


All objects as defined in the <IGES> standard are divided into groups. Listed below are the IGES groups and objects, currently importable by the system.

 

The following types are imported from the <Curves and Surfaces> group:

  • <Circular Arc>, type 100;
  • <Composite Curve>, type 102;
  • <Conic Arc>, type 104;
  • <Copious Data>, type 106;
  • <Plane>, type 108;
  • <Line>, type 110;
  • <Parametric Spline Curve>, type 112;
  • <Parametric Spline Surface>, type 114;
  • <Point>, type 116;
  • <Ruled Surface>, type 118;
  • <Surface of Revolution>, type 120;
  • <Tabulated Cylinder>, type 122;
  • <Transformation Matrix>, type 124;
  • <NURBS-curve Rational B-Spline Curve>, type 126;
  • <NURBS-surface Rational B-Spline Surface>, type 128;
  • <Offset Curve>, type 130;
  • <Offset Surface>, type 140;
  • <Boundary>, type 141;
  • <Curve on a Parametric Surface>, type 142;
  • <Bounded Surface>, type 143;
  • <Trimmed Surface>, type 144;

 

The following types are imported from the <B-Rep Solids> group:

  • <Face>, type 510;
  • <Loop>, type 508;
  • <Edge>, type 504;
  • <Vertex>, type 502;

This allows the program to work with <Manifold Solid B-Rep Object>, type 186 as with the set of bounded surfaces.

 

From the <Annotation Entities> group no type is imported. These entities are not significant for machining purposes.

From the <Structure Entities> group only the <Color Definition>, type 314 entities are imported. This means that model colors in SprutCAM are identical to the colors used in the modeling program.
