CreateBlendSurface Method (IBody2)

Creates a constant radius rolling-ball blend surface (also known as a pipe surface) between two side surfaces.

.NET Syntax

Visual Basic (Declaration) 
Function CreateBlendSurface( _
   ByVal Surface1 As System.Object, _
   ByVal Range1 As System.Double, _
   ByVal Surface2 As System.Object, _
   ByVal Range2 As System.Double, _
   ByVal StartVec As System.Object, _
   ByVal EndVec As System.Object, _
   ByVal HaveHelpVec As System.Integer, _
   ByVal HelpVec As System.Object, _
   ByVal HaveHelpBox As System.Integer, _
   ByVal HelpBox As System.Object _
) As System.Object
Visual Basic (Usage) 
Dim instance As IBody2
Dim Surface1 As System.Object
Dim Range1 As System.Double
Dim Surface2 As System.Object
Dim Range2 As System.Double
Dim StartVec As System.Object
Dim EndVec As System.Object
Dim HaveHelpVec As System.Integer
Dim HelpVec As System.Object
Dim HaveHelpBox As System.Integer
Dim HelpBox As System.Object
Dim value As System.Object
 
value = instance.CreateBlendSurface(Surface1, Range1, Surface2, Range2, StartVec, EndVec, HaveHelpVec, HelpVec, HaveHelpBox, HelpBox)
C# 
System.object CreateBlendSurface( 
   System.object Surface1,
   System.double Range1,
   System.object Surface2,
   System.double Range2,
   System.object StartVec,
   System.object EndVec,
   System.int HaveHelpVec,
   System.object HelpVec,
   System.int HaveHelpBox,
   System.object HelpBox
)
C++/CLI 
System.Object^ CreateBlendSurface( 
&   System.Object^ Surface1,
&   System.double Range1,
&   System.Object^ Surface2,
&   System.double Range2,
&   System.Object^ StartVec,
&   System.Object^ EndVec,
&   System.int HaveHelpVec,
&   System.Object^ HelpVec,
&   System.int HaveHelpBox,
&   System.Object^ HelpBox
) 

Parameters

Surface1

First side surface

Range1

Signed offset of Surface1

Surface2

Second side surface

Range2

Signed offset of Surface2

StartVec

Array of of 3 doubles representing a point close to the start of the blend spine

EndVec

Array of 3 doubles representing a point close to the end of the blend spine

HaveHelpVec

Optional. True if help vector is provided

HelpVec

Array of 3 doubles representing the direction of the Help vector

HaveHelpBox

Optional. True if box is provided

HelpBox

Array of 6 doubles bounding the area of interest

Return Value

Newly created surface

Remarks

The surface generated by this method is the path traced out when a sphere of the blend radius is rolled in contact with the two side surfaces. The center of the sphere rolls along the spine (the intersection of these two surfaces) when offset by the blend radius.
