BRepBuilderAPI_MakeWire::Add(TopoDS_Wire) Bug?

BRepBuilderAPI_MakeWire::Add(TopoDS_Wire) Bug?
Torsten Sadowski 2008/04/08 22:21

if a wire is added in MakeWire all edges of the wire are added in sequence. I the last edge is the one connecting to the wire only this last edge is added because all others fail beforehand.

I would suggest something like this:

      Standard_Boolean isd = true;
      TopTools_MapOfShape moe;
      TopExp_Explorer ex(W,TopAbs_EDGE);
      while (ex.More()) {
      while (isd && moe.Extent())
      TopTools_MapIteratorOfMapOfShape mi(moe);
      for (;mi.More(); mi.Next())
           isd = IsDone();
           if (isd)

This tries to add edges until no further edges succeed and it at least works for me.

Thanks Torsten, this works quite well.

Dont know why it is not integrated in the general BRepBuilderAPI_MakeWire or ShapeAnalysis_FreeBounds::ConnectWiresToWires().... because there it doesnt work to..???
