      float[] getBboxCenter()
      Provide array of 3-tuple float results from initializeOnly SFVec3f field named bboxCenter.

      Tooltip: Bounding box center accompanies bboxSize and provides an optional hint for bounding box position offset from origin of local coordinate system.
      Specified by:
      getBboxCenter in interface X3DBoundedObject
      Specified by:
      getBboxCenter in interface X3DGroupingNode
      Returns:
      value of bboxCenter field
    • setBboxCenter

      CADLayer setBboxCenter​(float[] newValue)
      Accessor method to assign 3-tuple float array to initializeOnly SFVec3f field named bboxCenter.

      Tooltip: Bounding box center accompanies bboxSize and provides an optional hint for bounding box position offset from origin of local coordinate system.
      Specified by:
      setBboxCenter in interface X3DBoundedObject
      Specified by:
      setBboxCenter in interface X3DGroupingNode
      Parameters:
      newValue - is new value for the bboxCenter field.
      Returns:
      CADLayer - namely this same object to allow sequential method pipelining (i.e. consecutive method invocations on the same object).
    • getBboxSize

      Provide array of 3-tuple float results within allowed range of [0,infinity), or default value [-1 -1 -1], from initializeOnly SFVec3f field named bboxSize.

      Tooltip: Bounding box size is usually omitted, and can easily be calculated automatically by an X3D player at scene-loading time with minimal computational cost. Bounding box size can also be defined as an optional authoring hint that suggests an optimization or constraint.
      Specified by:
      getBboxSize in interface X3DBoundedObject
      Specified by:
      getBboxSize in interface X3DGroupingNode

    • getChildren

      X3DNode[] getChildren()
      Provide array of X3DNode results (using an array consisting of properly typed nodes or ProtoInstanceObjects) from inputOutput MFNode field children.

      Tooltip: [X3DChildNode] Grouping nodes contain an ordered list of children nodes.
      • Hint: Each grouping node defines a coordinate space for its children, relative to the coordinate space of its parent node. Thus transformations accumulate down the scene graph hierarchy.
      • Hint: inputOnly MFNode addChildren field can append new X3DChildNode nodes via a ROUTE connection, duplicate input nodes (i.e. matching DEF, USE values) are ignored.
      • Hint: inputOnly MFNode removeChildren field can remove nodes from the children list, unrecognized input nodes (i.e. nonmatching DEF, USE values) are ignored.
