This function computes the segment of Bspline curve between the parametric values FromU1, ToU2. If C is periodic the arc has the same orientation as C if SameOrientation = True.

This function converts a non infinite curve from Geom into a Bspline curve. C must be an ellipse or a circle or a trimmed conic or a trimmed line or a Bezier curve or a trimmed Bezier curve or a BSpline curve or a trimmed BSpline curve or an Offset curve or a trimmed Offset curve. The returned Bspline is not periodic except if C is a Circle or an Ellipse. ParameterisationType applies only if the curve is a Circle or an ellipse : TgtThetaOver2, TgtThetaOver2_1, TgtThetaOver2_2, TgtThetaOver2_3, TgtThetaOver2_4, Purpose: this is the classical rational parameterisation 2 1  t cos(theta) = — 2 1 + t.
2t sin(theta) = — 2 1 + t
t = tan (theta/2)
with TgtThetaOver2 the routine will compute the number of spans using the rule num_spans = [ (ULast  UFirst) / 1.2 ] + 1 with TgtThetaOver2_N, N spans will be forced: an error will be raized if (ULast  UFirst) >= PI and N = 1, ULast  UFirst >= 2 PI and N = 2
QuasiAngular, here t is a rational function that approximates theta —> tan(theta/2). Neverthless the composing with above function yields exact functions whose square sum up to 1 RationalC1 ; t is replaced by a polynomial function of u so as to grant C1 contiuity across knots. Exceptions Standard_DomainError if the curve C is infinite. Standard_ConstructionError:

– Convert a curve to BSpline by Approximation
This method computes the arc of Bspline curve between the two knots FromK1 and ToK2. If C is periodic the arc has the same orientation as C if SameOrientation = Standard_True. If C is not periodic SameOrientation is not used for the computation and C is oriented from the knot fromK1 to the knot toK2. We just keep the local definition of C between the knots FromK1 and ToK2. The returned Bspline curve has its first and last knots with a multiplicity equal to degree + 1, where degree is the polynomial degree of C. The indexes of the knots FromK1 and ToK2 doesn't include the repetition of multiple knots in their definition.
Raised if FromK1 or ToK2 are out of the bounds [FirstUKnotIndex, LastUKnotIndex] Raised if FromK1 = ToK2

This function computes the segment of Bspline curve between the parametric values FromU1, ToU2. If C is periodic the arc has the same orientation as C if SameOrientation = True. If C is not periodic SameOrientation is not used for the computation and C is oriented fromU1 toU2. If U1 and U2 and two parametric values we consider that U1 = U2 if Abs (U1  U2) <= ParametricTolerance and ParametricTolerance must be greater or equal to Resolution from package gp.
Raised if FromU1 or ToU2 are out of the parametric bounds of the curve (The tolerance criterion is ParametricTolerance). Raised if Abs (FromU1  ToU2) <= ParametricTolerance Raised if ParametricTolerance < Resolution from gp.
