InsertFillSurface2 Method (IFeatureManager)

Inserts a fill-surface feature in the model.

.NET Syntax

Visual Basic (Declaration) 
Function InsertFillSurface2( _
   ByVal Resolutions As Integer, _
   ByVal Options As Integer, _
   ByVal VPatchBoundaries As Object, _
   ByVal VCurvatureControlType As Object, _
   ByVal VFaces As Object, _
   ByVal VConstraintCurves As Object _
) As Feature
Visual Basic (Usage) 
Dim instance As IFeatureManager
Dim Resolutions As Integer
Dim Options As Integer
Dim VPatchBoundaries As Object
Dim VCurvatureControlType As Object
Dim VFaces As Object
Dim VConstraintCurves As Object
Dim value As Feature
value = instance.InsertFillSurface2(Resolutions, Options, VPatchBoundaries, VCurvatureControlType, VFaces, VConstraintCurves)
Feature InsertFillSurface2( 
   int Resolutions,
   int Options,
   object VPatchBoundaries,
   object VCurvatureControlType,
   object VFaces,
   object VConstraintCurves
Feature^ InsertFillSurface2( 
&   int Resolutions,
&   int Options,
&   Object^ VPatchBoundaries,
&   Object^ VCurvatureControlType,
&   Object^ VFaces,
&   Object^ VConstraintCurves



Controls the resolution or quality of the surface (see Remarks)


Options as defined in swFeatureFillSurfaceOptions_e

Array of edges or sketches for the patch boundaries
Array of curve control methods as defined in swContactType_e
Array of faces to use for direction
Array of constraint curves (edges or sketches)

Return Value

Pointer to the IFeature object


You must use IModelDocExtension::SelectByID2 and the following Mark values to select edges that bound the surface to be filled:

  • Boundary curves = 1

  • Boundary with contact curvature control = 257

  • Boundary with tangent curvature control = 513

  • Constraint curves or internal curves = 4

The resolution argument can be set to 1, 2, or 3. The higher the value, the better the resolution.

Use the IBody2::Diagnose and the IDiagnoseResult APIs to get the gaps to fill.
