Visual Basic (Declaration) 
Function FeatureRevolveCut( _
   ByVal Angle As Double, _
   ByVal ReverseDir As Boolean, _
   ByVal Angle2 As Double, _
   ByVal RevType As Integer, _
   ByVal Options As Integer, _

Visual Basic (Usage) 
Dim instance As IFeatureManager
Dim Angle As Double
Dim ReverseDir As Boolean
Dim Angle2 As Double
Dim RevType As Integer
Dim Options As Integer
Dim UseFeatScope As Boolean
Dim UseAutoSelect As Boolean
Dim value As Feature
value = instance.FeatureRevolveCut(Angle, ReverseDir, Angle2, RevType, Options, UseFeatScope, UseAutoSelect)
Feature FeatureRevolveCut( 
   double Angle,
   bool ReverseDir,
   double Angle2,
   int RevType,
   int Options,
   bool UseFeatScope,
   bool UseAutoSelect
Feature^ FeatureRevolveCut( 
&   double Angle,
&   bool ReverseDir,
&   double Angle2,
&   int RevType,
&   int Options,
&   bool UseFeatScope,
&   bool UseAutoSelect



Angle of revolution in radians


True reverses the angle direction, false does not


Angle of revolution in radians


Type of revolution as defined in swRevolveType_e(can be either mid-plane or two-direction)


Additional control (see Remarks)


True if the feature only affects selected bodies, false if the feature affects all bodies


True to automatically select all bodies and have the feature affect those bodies, false to select the bodies the feature affects (see Remarks)

Return Value

Pointer to the IFeature object



The Options argument allows additional control of the feature creation. Supported value is swAutoCloseSketch close the sketch if it is open.

When UseAutoSelect is false, the user must select the bodies that the feature will affect.

When using cut or cavity features that result in multiple bodies, you cannot select to keep all of the resulting bodies or one or more selected bodies.

For extruded feature cuts, see IFeatureManager::FeatureCut.
