import cad and split into faces

Christian Carestia's picture


I did a script to import a step file and convert it to STL.

Now I would like to import the file, explode the solid into faces and convert each face.

In Salome, it is as easy as clicking explode -> faces.

My question is:

1) when a cad is imported, the geometry is converted into a BREP solid?

2) if so, should I use OCC.Brep.Brep_Builder.MakeFace or is there another way to do it?

Thanks in advance!
