SheetNode

from panda3d.core import SheetNode
class SheetNode

Bases: PandaNode

This class draws a visible representation of the NURBS surface stored in its NurbsSurfaceEvaluator. It automatically recomputes the surface every frame.

This is not related to NurbsSurface, CubicSurfaceseg or any of the ParametricSurface-derived objects in this module. It is a completely parallel implementation of NURBS surfaces, and will probably eventually replace the whole ParametricSurface class hierarchy.

__init__(name: str)
static getClassType()TypeHandle
getNumUSubdiv()int

Returns the number of subdivisions per cubic segment to draw in the U direction. See setNumUSubdiv().

getNumVSubdiv()int

Returns the number of subdivisions per cubic segment to draw in the V direction. See setNumVSubdiv().

getSurface()NurbsSurfaceEvaluator

Returns the surface represented by the SheetNode.

getUseVertexColor()bool

Returns the “use vertex color” flag. See setUseVertexColor().

resetBound(rel_to: NodePath)None

Recomputes the bounding volume. This is normally called automatically, but it must occasionally be called explicitly when the surface has changed properties outside of this node’s knowledge.

setNumUSubdiv(num_u_subdiv: int)None

Specifies the number of subdivisions per cubic segment (that is, per unique knot value) to draw in a fixed uniform tesselation of the surface in the U direction.

setNumVSubdiv(num_v_subdiv: int)None

Specifies the number of subdivisions per cubic segment (that is, per unique knot value) to draw in a fixed uniform tesselation of the surface in the V direction.

setSurface(surface: NurbsSurfaceEvaluator)None

Sets the particular surface represented by the SheetNode.

setUseVertexColor(flag: bool)None

Sets the “use vertex color” flag. When this is true, the R, G, B, A vertex color is assumed to be stored as the dimensions 0, 1, 2, 3, respectively, of the extended vertex values. Use NurbsCurveEvaluator.setExtendedVertex() to set these values.
