Bug of OCC6.5.3: Building loft surface crash.

Cauchy Ding's picture

Hi All,

Load attached brep file. Use BRepOffsetAPI_ThruSections to create a loft surface by selecting two circle curves. It will crash in
BRepFill_Generator.cxx. Crash point is:
gp_Circ k1 = (Handle(Geom_Circle)::DownCast(C1))->Circ();
Here C1 is a TrimmedCurve and its basic curve is a circle. So this conversion will failed.

I have compared OCC6.5.3 and OCC6.5.4. No updates in this file.
Thanks in advance.

Dear Cauchy Ding,
It seems the problem is in your data (the first wire).
Simple rebuilding of the wire allows to get the expected result.

Dear Supervisor,

Thanks for your feedback. Those two edges are from faces which topology correct. Yes, the crash is not caused by algorithm but a type conversion bug in BRepFill_Generator.cxx. Rebuild curve will erase this problem because the tolerance will be reset.
