Standard_Boolean Read (const char *theFile, const Handle< Message_ProgressIndicator > &theProgress)
 Reads data from STL file (either binary or Ascii). This function supports reading multi-domain STL files formed by concatenation of several "plain" files. The mesh nodes are not merged between domains. Unicode paths can be given in UTF-8 encoding. Format is recognized automatically by analysis of the file header. Returns true if success, false on error or user break. More...
 
Standard_Boolean IsAscii (Standard_IStream &theStream)
 Guess whether the stream is an Ascii STL file, by analysis of the first bytes (~200). The function attempts to put back the read symbols to the stream which thus must support ungetc(). Returns true if the stream seems to contain Ascii STL. More...
 
Standard_Boolean ReadBinary (Standard_IStream &theStream, const Handle< Message_ProgressIndicator > &theProgress)
 Reads STL data from binary stream. The stream must be opened in binary mode. Stops after reading the number of triangles recorded in the file header. Returns true if success, false on error or user break. More...
 
Standard_Boolean ReadAscii (Standard_IStream &theStream, const std::streampos theUntilPos, const Handle< Message_ProgressIndicator > &theProgress)
 Reads data from the stream assumed to contain Ascii STL data. The stream can be opened either in binary or in Ascii mode. Reading stops at the position specified by theUntilPos, or end of file is reached, or when keyword "endsolid" is found. Empty lines are not supported and will read to reading failure. If theUntilPos is non-zero, reads not more than until that position. Returns true if success, false on error or user break. More...

Detailed Description

An abstract class implementing procedure to read STL file.

This class is not bound to particular data structure and can be used to read the file directly into arbitrary data model. To use it, create descendant class and implement methods addNode() and addTriangle().

Call method Read() to read the file. In the process of reading, the tool will call methods addNode() and addTriangle() to fill the mesh data structure.

The nodes with equal coordinates are merged automatically on the fly.

Member Function Documentation

◆ AddNode()

virtual Standard_Integer RWStl_Reader::AddNode ( const gp_XYZ thePnt)
pure virtual

Callback function to be implemented in descendant. Should create new node with specified coordinates in the target model, and return its ID as integer.

◆ AddTriangle()

virtual void RWStl_Reader::AddTriangle ( Standard_Integer  theN1,
Standard_Integer  theN2,
Standard_Integer  theN3 
)
pure virtual

Callback function to be implemented in descendant. Should create new triangle built on specified nodes in the target model.

◆ IsAscii()

Standard_Boolean RWStl_Reader::IsAscii ( Standard_IStream theStream)

Guess whether the stream is an Ascii STL file, by analysis of the first bytes (~200). The function attempts to put back the read symbols to the stream which thus must support ungetc(). Returns true if the stream seems to contain Ascii STL.

◆ Read()

Standard_Boolean RWStl_Reader::Read ( const char *  theFile,
const Handle< Message_ProgressIndicator > &  theProgress 
)

Reads data from STL file (either binary or Ascii). This function supports reading multi-domain STL files formed by concatenation of several "plain" files. The mesh nodes are not merged between domains. Unicode paths can be given in UTF-8 encoding. Format is recognized automatically by analysis of the file header. Returns true if success, false on error or user break.

◆ ReadAscii()

Standard_Boolean RWStl_Reader::ReadAscii ( Standard_IStream theStream,
const std::streampos  theUntilPos,
const Handle< Message_ProgressIndicator > &  theProgress 
)

Reads data from the stream assumed to contain Ascii STL data. The stream can be opened either in binary or in Ascii mode. Reading stops at the position specified by theUntilPos, or end of file is reached, or when keyword "endsolid" is found. Empty lines are not supported and will read to reading failure. If theUntilPos is non-zero, reads not more than until that position. Returns true if success, false on error or user break.

◆ ReadBinary()

Standard_Boolean RWStl_Reader::ReadBinary ( Standard_IStream theStream,
const Handle< Message_ProgressIndicator > &  theProgress 
)

Reads STL data from binary stream. The stream must be opened in binary mode. Stops after reading the number of triangles recorded in the file header. Returns true if success, false on error or user break.
