BrepType Enumeration

Shape catalog renewal makes it possible to organize shapes in the shape catalog compared to a plain list before. Thus, it is now possible and required to distinguish shapes in such a manner that: BuildingProduct represent shapes that users can import from, for example, Tekla Warehouse and insert them into a model. These are usually provided by the manufacturer and not detailed by users themselves. StructuralShape represent shapes that get created by "Convert part to item" or from geometry editing.
