Deal with (n, 2, 3) line segments.
Functions

Find pairs of segments which are colinear. 

Extrude 2D line segments into 3D triangles. 

Extrude 2D line segments into 3D triangles. 

Find the overlap of two parallel line segments. 

Convert a parametric line segment representation to 

Resample line segments until no segment is longer than maxlen. 

For 3D line segments defined by two points, turn them in to an origin defined as the closest point along the line to the zero origin as well as a direction vector and start and end parameter. 

Find any points that lie on a segment (not an endpoint) and then split that segment into two segments. 

Convert (n, 2, 2) line segments to an SVG path string. 

Find unique nonzero line segments.

colinear_pairs
(segments, radius=0.01, angle=0.01, length=None)¶ Find pairs of segments which are colinear.
 Parameters
segments ((n, 2, (2, 3)) float) – Two or three dimensional line segments
radius (float) – Maximum radius line origins can differ and be considered colinear
angle (float) – Maximum angle in radians segments can differ and still be considered colinear
length (None or float) – If specified, will additionally require that pairs have a mean vertex distance less than this value from each other to qualify.
 Returns
pairs – Indexes of segments which are colinear
 Return type
(m, 2) int
