Lesson 2:Import .IGES .STEP files while using VTK visualization ,simple example.

Dear @cory.quammen
Is this the Proper way to publish Code ?
Thank You. :pray:

In this example, I am adding Import .Iges file and .Step File to this YouTube Video Example
[Lesson 2: Bring OpenCascade and VTK together - YouTube]

add this to includes

#include <IGESControl_Reader.hxx>
#include <STEPCAFControl_Reader.hxx>

add this to main

STEPControl_Reader readerSTEP;
IFSelect_ReturnStatus statSTEP = readerSTEP.ReadFile("C:\\WorkSpace\\prism.step");
IFSelect_PrintCount modeSTEP = IFSelect_ListByItem;
readerSTEP.PrintCheckLoad(Standard_False, modeSTEP);
TopoDS_Shape shapeSTEP = readerSTEP.OneShape();

IGESControl_Reader ReaderIGES;
IFSelect_ReturnStatus statIGES = ReaderIGES.ReadFile("C:\\WorkSpace\\prism.igs");
IFSelect_PrintCount modeIGES = IFSelect_ListByItem;
ReaderIGES.PrintCheckLoad(Standard_True, modeIGES);
TopoDS_Shape shapeIGES = ReaderIGES.OneShape();

fix in the correct line in main

vtkNew<IVtkTools_ShapeDataSource> occSource;
occSource->SetShape(new IVtkOCC_Shape(shapeIGES));//shapeSTEP //shapeIGES

good luck!

Hello @anon41080341.

What is the question here ?

Hi @mwestphal.
The question is What Groups/TAGS is proper to release this nice small code.

I just created a code tag :slight_smile:

Dear @cory.quammen @mwestphal
I know this is the wrong place to send mail.
But, the truth is, that I could not find where to send regular mail, on this Platform.

As you can see, In my Uploaded code, I have connected VTK to one of the Newest and clearest,
Open Cascade on YouTube.

Plus, How to Import .IGES .STEP files,
So an engineer can start work Directly on complex Mesh, at the same level as Solid Works!

Here in Lesson2 from YouTube.

A problem that I solved and have a solution and will upload the solution.
