Get curve attribute with PCL function

Get curve attribute with PCL function

Get curve attribute with PCL function

(OP)
Hi,

I would like get curve attributes (curve ID, points ID and coordinates) with a PCL function.

I would like write a text file with a format like .bdf or .dat not with mesh elements but geomtric elements like curve, point, surface.

for example

CODE -->

CURVE ID PtA PtB
SURFACE ID PtA PtB PtC PtD
POINT ID X Y Z
etc .... 

In the patran_2012.2_doc_pcl_reference I have seen db_get_curve_id, but when I use it I cannot get the ID of the curve


CODE -->

INTEGER entity_id(1), status, label

status = db_get_curve_id( label, entity_id(1) ) 

For the points ID and coordinates I have not found a function.

Who can help me please ?

Best regards
