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.

public class Geometry : Entity


Name Description
Geometry(string) Initializes a new instance of the Geometry class.


Name Description
CastShadows { get; set; } Gets or sets whether this geometry can cast shadow
ControlPoints { get; } Gets all control points
Deformers { get; } Gets all deformers associated with this geometry.
Excluded { get; set; } Gets or sets whether to exclude this entity during exporting.
virtual Name { get; set; } Gets or sets the name.
ParentNode { get; set; } Gets or sets the first parent node, if set the first parent node, this entity will be detached from other parent nodes.
ParentNodes { get; } Gets all parent nodes, an entity can be attached to multiple parent nodes for geometry instancing
Properties { get; } Gets the collection of all properties.
ReceiveShadows { get; set; } Gets or sets whether this geometry can receive shadow.
Scene { get; } Gets the scene that this object belongs to
VertexElements { get; } Gets all vertex elements
Visible { get; set; } Gets or sets if the geometry is visible
