Constructor for SphereSegment

Name Type Argument Default Description
ctx Object <optional>
null context object, containing initial settings like namespace


These are the X3D / X3DOM fields of this node. Values should usually be received / set as strings via DOM functions (i.e., using setAttribute("myFieldName", "myFieldValue") and getAttribute("myFieldName")).
Name Type Default Value Range Inheritance Standard Description
ccw SFBool true X3DSpatialGeometryNode The ccw field defines the ordering of the vertex coordinates of the geometry with respect to user-given or automatically generated normal vectors used in the lighting model equations.
latitude MFFloat [] Defines an array of latitude values.
lit SFBool true X3DSpatialGeometryNode Specifies whether this geometry should be rendered with or without lighting.
longitude MFFloat [] Defines an array of longitude values.
metadata SFNode X3DMetadataObject X3DSpatialGeometryNode Field to add metadata information
radius SFFloat 1 Defines the radius of the sphere.
solid SFBool true X3DSpatialGeometryNode Specifies whether backface-culling is used. If solid is TRUE only front-faces are drawn.
stepSize SFVec2f 1,1 Defines an array of stepSizes.
useGeoCache SFBool true X3DSpatialGeometryNode Most geo primitives use geo cache and others might later on, but one should be able to disable cache per geometry node.
