IGetProcessedBody2 Method (IPartDoc)

Pre-processes the geometry of a body so that:
  • Closed periodic faces (for example, the lateral face of a cylinder) are split into two faces.

  • Faces that straddle the seam, if any, of the underlying surface are split into two faces.

.NET Syntax

Visual Basic (Declaration) 
Function IGetProcessedBody2() As Body2
Visual Basic (Usage) 
Dim instance As IPartDoc
Dim value As Body2
value = instance.IGetProcessedBody2()
Body2 IGetProcessedBody2()
Body2^ IGetProcessedBody2(); 

Return Value

Processed body, which is a copy of the body for this part


Preprocessing is sometimes necessary (for example, IGES files), for exporting to systems that have difficulty with periodic conditions.
