GetFaces Method (IWeldmentBeadFeatureData)

Gets the sets of faces whose edges intersection defines the edges to which the weld bead is applied.

.NET Syntax

Visual Basic (Declaration) 
Sub GetFaces( _
   ByVal Side As Integer, _
   ByRef FaceSet1 As Object, _
   ByRef FaceSet2 As Object _
Visual Basic (Usage) 
Dim instance As IWeldmentBeadFeatureData
Dim Side As Integer
Dim FaceSet1 As Object
Dim FaceSet2 As Object
instance.GetFaces(Side, FaceSet1, FaceSet2)
void GetFaces( 
   int Side,
   out object FaceSet1,
   out object FaceSet2
void GetFaces( 
&   int Side,
&   [Out] Object^ FaceSet1,
&   [Out] Object^ FaceSet2



Side as defined in swWeldBeadSide_e

First set of faces
Second set of faces



After using this method, use IWeldmentBeadFeatureData::GetVirtualEdges to get the new intersections. Then use IWeldmentBeadFeatureData::SetVirtualEdges to specify the edges to which you want the weld bead applied. By default, IWeldmentBeadFeatureData::SetFaces creates the bead on all virtual edges. IWeldmentBeadFeatureData::SetVirtualEdges lets
you exclude any of these edges.
