The abstract class Conic describes the common behavior of conic curves in 3D space and, in particular, their general characteristics. The Geom package provides four concrete classes of conics: Geom_Circle, Geom_Ellipse, Geom_Hyperbola and Geom_Parabola. A conic is positioned in space with a righthanded coordinate system (gp_Ax2 object), where: More...

virtual Standard_Boolean  IsClosed () const =0 
Returns true if the curve is closed. Some curves such as circle are always closed, others such as line are never closed (by definition). Some Curves such as OffsetCurve can be closed or not. These curves are considered as closed if the distance between the first point and the last point of the curve is lower or equal to the Resolution from package gp wich is a fixed criterion independant of the application. More...  
virtual Standard_Boolean  IsPeriodic () const =0 
Is the parametrization of the curve periodic ? It is possible only if the curve is closed and if the following relation is satisfied : for each parametric value U the distance between the point P(u) and the point P (u + T) is lower or equal to Resolution from package gp, T is the period and must be a constant. There are three possibilities : . the curve is never periodic by definition (SegmentLine) . the curve is always periodic by definition (Circle) . the curve can be defined as periodic (BSpline). In this case a function SetPeriodic allows you to give the shape of the curve. The general rule for this case is : if a curve can be periodic or not the default periodicity set is non periodic and you have to turn (explicitly) the curve into a periodic curve if you want the curve to be periodic. More...
