CGAL 5.3  3D Surface Mesh Generation

The concept SurfaceMeshTraits_3
describes the knowledge that is required on the surface to be meshed. A model of this concept implements an oracle that is able to tell whether a segment (or a ray, or a line) intersects the surface or not, and to compute some intersection points if any exists. The concept SurfaceMeshTraits_3
also includes a funcctor able to provide a small set of initial points on the surface.

Types  
typedef unspecified_type  Point_3 
The type of points. More...  
typedef unspecified_type  Segment_3 
The type of segments.  
typedef unspecified_type  Ray_3 
The type of rays.  
typedef unspecified_type  Line_3 
The type of lines.  
typedef unspecified_type  Surface_3 
The surface type.  
typedef unspecified_type  Intersect_3 
A model of this type provides the operator. More...  
typedef unspecified_type  Construct_initial_points 
A model of this type provides the following operators to construct initial points on the surface: More...  
Operations  
The following functions give access to the construction objects:  
Intersect_3  intersect_3_object () 
Construct_initial_points  construct_initial_points_object () 
A model of this type provides the following operators to construct initial points on the surface:
template <class OutputIteratorPoints>
OutputIteratorPoints operator()(OutputIteratorPoints pts)
which outputs a set of points on the surface,
template <class OutputIteratorPoints>
OutputIteratorPoints operator() (OutputIteratorPoints pts, int n)
which outputs a set of n
points on the surface.
A model of this type provides the operator.
CGAL::Object operator()(Surface_3 surface, Type1 type1)
to compute the intersection of the surface with an object of type Type1
which may be Segment_3
, Ray_3
or Line_3
.
The type of points.
This type is required to match the point type of the three dimensional embedding triangulation C2T3::Triangulation_3
.
