Low-Level and High-Level interfaces


For a number of tasks, like

  • building topology
  • determining intersections

Open CASCADE provides a low-level interface, often requiring a number of tolerance values and other special arguments. On the other hand, there's a high-level interface for which many values of the low-level interface cannot be explicitely specified.

This article lists high-level interfaces, their purpose and the connection with low-level interfaces.
