CreateExtrusionSurface Method (IModeler)

Creates an extruded surface.

.NET Syntax

Visual Basic (Declaration) 
Function CreateExtrusionSurface( _
   ByVal ProfileCurve As System.Object, _
   ByVal AxisDirection As System.Object _
) As System.Object
Visual Basic (Usage) 
Dim instance As IModeler
Dim ProfileCurve As System.Object
Dim AxisDirection As System.Object
Dim value As System.Object
value = instance.CreateExtrusionSurface(ProfileCurve, AxisDirection)
System.object CreateExtrusionSurface( 
   System.object ProfileCurve,
   System.object AxisDirection
System.Object^ CreateExtrusionSurface( 
&   System.Object^ ProfileCurve,
&   System.Object^ AxisDirection


Profile curve
Array of 3 doubles (x,y,z)

Return Value

Extruded surface


You can use this method with:

  • A set of related functions that construct a body from trimmed surfaces. The profile curve is extruded along the direction vector of axis direction, the new surface being the envelope of the curve. The profile curve must be of type line, circle, or b-spline curve.

  • Trimming curve creation routines (for example, ISurface::AddTrimmingLoop2 or ISurface::IAddTrimmingLoop2) to construct a trimmed tabulated cylinder.
