Creates a constant radius rolling-ball blend surface (also known as a pipe surface) between two side surfaces.

.NET Syntax

Visual Basic (Declaration) 
Function CreateBlendSurface( _
   ByVal Surface1 As Object, _
   ByVal Range1 As Double, _
   ByVal Surface2 As Object, _
   ByVal Range2 As Double, _
   ByVal StartVec As Object, _
   ByVal EndVec As Object, _
   ByVal HaveHelpVec As Integer, _
   ByVal HelpVec As Object, _
   ByVal HaveHelpBox As Integer, _
   ByVal HelpBox As Object _
) As Object
Visual Basic (Usage) 
Dim instance As IBody2
Dim Surface1 As Object
Dim Range1 As Double
Dim Surface2 As Object
Dim Range2 As Double
Dim StartVec As Object
Dim EndVec As Object
Dim HaveHelpVec As Integer
Dim HelpVec As Object
Dim HaveHelpBox As Integer
Dim HelpBox As Object
Dim value As Object
 
value = instance.CreateBlendSurface(Surface1, Range1, Surface2, Range2, StartVec, EndVec, HaveHelpVec, HelpVec, HaveHelpBox, HelpBox)
C# 
object CreateBlendSurface( 
   object Surface1,
   double Range1,
   object Surface2,
   double Range2,
   object StartVec,
   object EndVec,
   int HaveHelpVec,
   object HelpVec,
   int HaveHelpBox,
   object HelpBox
)
C++/CLI 
Object^ CreateBlendSurface( 
&   Object^ Surface1,
&   double Range1,
&   Object^ Surface2,
&   double Range2,
&   Object^ StartVec,
&   Object^ EndVec,
&   int HaveHelpVec,
&   Object^ HelpVec,
&   int HaveHelpBox,
&   Object^ HelpBox
) 

Parameters

Surface1

First side surface

Range1

Signed offset of Surface1

Surface2

Second side surface

Range2

Signed offset of Surface2

StartVec

Array of of 3 doubles representing a point close to the start of the blend spine

EndVec

Array of 3 doubles representing a point close to the end of the blend spine

HaveHelpVec

Optional. True if help vector is provided

HelpVec

Array of 3 doubles representing the direction of the Help vector

HaveHelpBox

Optional. True if box is provided

HelpBox

Array of 6 doubles bounding the area of interest

Return Value

Newly created surface

Remarks

The surface generated by this method is the path traced out when a sphere of the blend radius is rolled in contact with the two side surfaces. The center of the sphere rolls along the spine (the intersection of these two surfaces) when offset by the blend radius.
