CheckInterference Method (IModeler)

Obsolete. Superseded by IModeler::CheckInterference3.

.NET Syntax

Visual Basic (Declaration) 
Function CheckInterference( _
   ByVal Body1 As Object, _
   ByVal Body2 As Object, _
   ByVal CoincidentInterference As Boolean, _
   ByRef Body1InterferedFaceArray As Object, _
   ByRef Body2InterferedFaceArray As Object, _
   ByRef IntersectedBodyArray As Object _
) As Boolean
Visual Basic (Usage) 
Dim instance As IModeler
Dim Body1 As Object
Dim Body2 As Object
Dim CoincidentInterference As Boolean
Dim Body1InterferedFaceArray As Object
Dim Body2InterferedFaceArray As Object
Dim IntersectedBodyArray As Object
Dim value As Boolean
value = instance.CheckInterference(Body1, Body2, CoincidentInterference, Body1InterferedFaceArray, Body2InterferedFaceArray, IntersectedBodyArray)
bool CheckInterference( 
   object Body1,
   object Body2,
   bool CoincidentInterference,
   out object Body1InterferedFaceArray,
   out object Body2InterferedFaceArray,
   out object IntersectedBodyArray
bool CheckInterference( 
&   Object^ Body1,
&   Object^ Body2,
&   bool CoincidentInterference,
&   [Out] Object^ Body1InterferedFaceArray,
&   [Out] Object^ Body2InterferedFaceArray,
&   [Out] Object^ IntersectedBodyArray


First body to check for interference
Second body to check for interference

True to check for coincident interference, false to not

Array of faces that have interfered from the first body with the second body
Array of faces that have interfered from the second body with the first body
Array of the interfering bodies

Return Value

True if successful, false if not



Each body must be transformed in the coordinate space of the top-level assembly so that it is positioned the same with respect to the other bodies as it is in assembly space.

To align the two bodies, apply the transformation from IComponent2::Transform2 using IBody2::ApplyTransform.
