X3DBoundedObject, X3DChildNode, X3DNode
All Known Implementing Classes:
NurbsSetObject

public interface NurbsSet
extends X3DChildNode, X3DBoundedObject
NurbsSet collects a set of NurbsSurface nodes into a common group and treats NurbsSurface set as a unit during tessellation, thereby enforcing tessellation continuity along borders.

  • Warning: geometry represented in children of this node shall not be directly rendered. It is an informational node only.
  • Warning: Surfaces not represented elsewhere in transformation hierarchy shall not be rendered.
  • Hint: USE nodes for geometry ensure renderable versions occur elsewhere in the model. The bounds information is provided for optimization purposes only. A browser may choose to use this information about when to apply trimming or smooth tessellation between patches based on the bounds information.
