public class Shape3D
extends Leaf

The Shape3D leaf node specifies all geometric objects. It contains a list of one or more Geometry component objects and a single Appearance component object. The geometry objects define the shape node's geometric data. The appearance object specifies that object's appearance attributes, including color, material, texture, and so on.

The list of geometry objects must all be of the same equivalence class, that is, the same basic type of primitive. For subclasses of GeometryArray, all point objects are equivalent, all line objects are equivalent, and all polygon objects are equivalent. For other subclasses of Geometry, only objects of the same subclass are equivalent. The equivalence classes are as follows:

When Shape3D is used with multiple geometry components, Java 3D may choose to use individual geometry bounds instead of the shape's bounds for region of influence operations, such as lighting. For example, the individual characters of a Text3D shape object may be rendered with a different light set.

cloneNode

public Node cloneNode(boolean forceDuplicate)
Used to create a new instance of the node. This routine is called by cloneTree to duplicate the current node. cloneNode should be overridden by any user subclassed objects. All subclasses must have their cloneNode method consist of the following lines:

     public Node cloneNode(boolean forceDuplicate) {
         UserSubClass usc = new UserSubClass();
         usc.duplicateNode(this, forceDuplicate);
         return usc;
     }
 

Overrides:
cloneNode in class Node
Parameters:
forceDuplicate - when set to true, causes the duplicateOnCloneTree flag to be ignored. When false, the value of each node's duplicateOnCloneTree variable determines whether NodeComponent data is duplicated or copied.
See Also:
Node.cloneTree(), Node.duplicateNode(javax.media.j3d.Node, boolean), NodeComponent.setDuplicateOnCloneTree(boolean)

duplicateNode

public void duplicateNode(Node originalNode,
                          boolean forceDuplicate)
Copies all node information from originalNode into the current node. This method is called from the cloneNode method which is, in turn, called by the cloneTree method.

For any NodeComponent objects contained by the object being duplicated, each NodeComponent object's duplicateOnCloneTree value is used to determine whether the NodeComponent should be duplicated in the new node or if just a reference to the current node should be placed in the new node. This flag can be overridden by setting the forceDuplicate parameter in the cloneTree method to true.
NOTE: Applications should not call this method directly. It should only be called by the cloneNode method.

Overrides:
duplicateNode in class Node
Parameters:
originalNode - the original node to duplicate.
forceDuplicate - when set to true, causes the duplicateOnCloneTree flag to be ignored. When false, the value of each node's duplicateOnCloneTree variable determines whether NodeComponent data is duplicated or copied.
Throws:
java.lang.ClassCastException - if originalNode is not an instance of Shape3D
See Also:
Node.cloneTree(), Node.cloneNode(boolean), NodeComponent.setDuplicateOnCloneTree(boolean)

getBounds

public Bounds getBounds()
See parent class for the documentation on getBounds().

Overrides:
getBounds in class Node
Returns:
the node's bounding object
