Writing a plane to a STEP file

Bernd Noetenhuber's picture

Is it possible to create a STEP file that just contains a "mathematical plane", i.e. the definition of a plane preferably given through (base point, u, v)?

According to the "STEP User's Guide", there is a STEP equivalent to Geom_Plane, but we have not been able to figure out how export it. The Transfer() method of STEPControl_Writer will only accept a TopoDS_Shape, which we don't have (we could probably export a face lying in the plane, but that would only be a workaround).
