It's not possible to modify a Shape. You have to build a new one with new values. It's a choice in opencascade, the shape can not be modified, one reason is that a TShape S1 can be contained by an other shape S2, and if S1 changes... what should we do with S2 ? An other reason is that a Shape doesn't know where it is used. There is not back pointers. Theses choices are strong and with uses they prove to be effective.

Best Regards
