EntityParams Property (IMateEntity2)

Gets the parameters for this mate entity.

.NET Syntax

Visual Basic (Declaration) 
ReadOnly Property EntityParams As System.Object
Visual Basic (Usage) 
Dim instance As IMateEntity2
Dim value As System.Object
 
value = instance.EntityParams
C# 
System.object EntityParams {get;}
C++/CLI 
property System.Object^ EntityParams {
   System.Object^ get();
}

Property Value

Array of doubles representing the mate entity parameters (see Remarks)

Example

Remarks

The return value is the following array of doubles:

 [ pointX, pointY, pointZ, vectorI, vectorJ, vectorK, radius1, radius2 ]

 where

  •   pointX is the X location of this mate entity in the assembly model space

  •   pointY is the Y location of this mate entity in the assembly model space

  •   pointZ is the Z location of this mate entity in the assembly model space

  •   vectorI is the i component of the assembly mate vector

  •   vectorJ is the j component of the assembly mate vector

  •   vectorK is the k component of the assembly mate vector

  •   radius1 is the value for the first radius

  •   radius2 is the value for the second radius

To define the mate entity, the following information is returned based on the mate type. All coordinate information is given in terms of the assembly coordinate system where the mate resides.

 

Mate Type

Returned

swMatePoint

pointX, pointY, pointZ

swMateLine

pointX, pointY, pointZ, vectorI, vectorJ, vectorK where the point is a point on the line and the vector represents the line direction.

swMatePlane

pointX, pointY, pointZ, vectorI, vectorJ, vectorK where the point is a point on the plane and the vector represents the plane normal.

swMateCylinder

pointX, pointY, pointZ, vectorI, vectorJ, vectorK, radius1 where the point is a point on the cylinder axis and the vector represents the cylinder axis.

swMateCone

pointX, pointY, pointZ, vectorI, vectorJ, vectorK, radius1, radius2 where the point is a point on the cone axis and the vector represents the cone axis.

 

 

To get the IMateEntity2 interface, use IMate2::MateEntity.
