CreateNewBody Method (IPartDoc)

Creates a new body to use for import sewing operations and returns it to the caller.

.NET Syntax

Visual Basic (Declaration) 
Function CreateNewBody() As System.Object
Visual Basic (Usage) 
Dim instance As IPartDoc
Dim value As System.Object
value = instance.CreateNewBody()
System.object CreateNewBody()
System.Object^ CreateNewBody(); 

Return Value

New body



The intention is that with a handle on such a (initially empty) body, appropriate construction methods (for example, IBody2::CreateTrimmedSurface) can be called that eventually amount to a non-trivial object.
