Geometry Class
The base class of all renderable geometric objects (like Mesh, NurbsSurface, Patch and etc.).

The Geometry base class supports:
  • Control point management, control points defines the base 3D spatial structure of the geometry, different geometric types has different way to define concrete 3D models.
  • Vertex element definition, vertex elements applies extra information like normals/uv coordinates/vertex colors to the geometry, see VertexElement for more details.
  • Object deforming, Deformer can be bonded to animate geometry's shape.
