TIGL: A library for generating 3D geometries from parametrized CPACS/XML data sets. The TiGL Geometry Library can be used for the computation and processing of aircraft geometries stored inside CPACS files. TiGL offers many geometry related functions such as Point retrieval functions to compute points on the aircraft surface; Intersection functions to compute the intersection of the aircraft with planes; Export functions for standard CAD file formats (STEP + IGES) or mesh formats, including VTK, Collada, and STL. The TiGL library uses the OpenCASCADE CAD kernel to represent the airplane geometry by NURBS surfaces. The library provides external interfaces for C, C++, Python, Java, MATLAB, and FORTRAN. TiGL is shipped with the Qt based TiGL Viewer for visualizing aircraft geometries or viewing CAD files.
