4. MeshBoolean plugin

MeshBoolean is a standard plugin of cloudComPy.

The availability of the plugin can be tested with the cloudComPy.isPluginMeshBoolean() function:

isMeshBoolean_available = cc.isPluginMeshBoolean()

MeshBoolean is a submodule of cloudCompy:

import cloudComPy as cc
# ...
if cc.isPluginMeshBoolean():
    import cloudComPy.MeshBoolean
    cc.MeshBoolean.computeMeshBoolean(...)
class cloudComPy.MeshBoolean.CSG_OPERATION

Members:

UNION

INTERSECT

DIFF

SYM_DIFF

DIFF = <CSG_OPERATION.DIFF: 2>
INTERSECT = <CSG_OPERATION.INTERSECT: 1>
SYM_DIFF = <CSG_OPERATION.SYM_DIFF: 3>
UNION = <CSG_OPERATION.UNION: 0>

cloudComPy.MeshBoolean.computeMeshBoolean(arg0: _cloudComPy.ccMesh, arg1: _cloudComPy.ccMesh, arg2: cloudComPy.MeshBoolean._MeshBoolean.CSG_OPERATION) _cloudComPy.ccMesh

Compute boolean operation on two meshes. (plugin MeshBoolean)

The boolean operation are UNION, INTERSECT, DIFF, SYM_DIFF. Original meshes are not modified, a new mesh is built.

Parameters
  • MeshA (ccMesh) – first mesh.

  • MeshB (ccMesh) – second mesh.

  • operation (CSG_OPERATION) – from cc.MeshBoolean.CSG_OPERATION (UNION, INTERSECT, DIFF, SYM_DIFF)

Returns

new mesh or None

Return type

ccMesh

cloudComPy.MeshBoolean.initTrace_MeshBoolean() None

Debug trace must be initialized for each Python module.

Done in module init, following the value of environment variable _CCTRACE_ (“ON” if debug traces wanted)
