- class trimesh.path.entities.Curve(points, closed=None, layer=None, metadata=None, color=None, **kwargs)
Bases:
Entity
The parent class for all wild curves in space.
- property nodes
Returns an (n,2) list of nodes, or vertices on the path. Note that this generic class function assumes that all of the reference points are on the path which is true for lines and three point arcs.
If you were to define another class where that wasn’t the case (for example, the control points of a bezier curve), you would need to implement an entity- specific version of this function.
The purpose of having a list of nodes is so that they can then be added as edges to a graph so we can use functions to check connectivity, extract paths, etc.
The slicing on this function is essentially just tiling points so the first and last vertices aren’t repeated. Example:
self.points = [0,1,2] returns: [[0,1], [1,2]]
