   bool Is2Sided,
   bool ReverseThicknessDir,
   double Thickness,
   int ReferenceEdgeIndex,

C++/CLI 
void InsertRib( 
&   bool Is2Sided,
&   bool ReverseThicknessDir,
&   double Thickness,
&   int ReferenceEdgeIndex,
&   bool ReverseMaterialDir,
&   bool IsDrafted,
&   bool DraftOutward,
&   double DraftAngle,
&   bool IsNormToSketch,
&   bool IsDraftedFromWall
) 

Parameters

Is2Sided

True if the rib is double-sided rib, false if the rib is single sided; a double-sided rib thickens on both sides of the sketch

ReverseThicknessDir

For single-sided ribs: Ture to thicken the opposite side of the sketch normal, false to not

Thickness
Rib thickness
ReferenceEdgeIndex

Edge in the sketch to use to determine the material direction and for draft reference; when the rib is drafted, the mid point of this edge maintains the thickness value; other points on the rib may have a different thickness due to the draft

ReverseMaterialDir
True to flip the direction of the extrusion, false to not
IsDrafted
True to draft the rib, false to not
DraftOutward
True to draft the rib outward, false to not; only effective if IsDrafted is true
DraftAngle
Draft angle of the rib; only effective if IsDrafted is true
IsNormToSketch

True if extrusion direction is normal to sketch, false if parelle to sketch

IsDraftedFromWall
True if draft is from wall, false if not; only valid if IsDrafted is true
