Function InsertSheetMetal3dBend( _
   ByVal Angle As System.Double, _
   ByVal BUseDefaultRadius As System.Boolean, _
   ByVal Radius As System.Double, _
   ByVal FlipDir As System.Boolean, _
   ByVal BendPos As System.Short, _
   ByVal PCBA As CustomBendAllowance _
) As Feature
Visual Basic (Usage) 
Dim instance As IFeatureManager
Dim Angle As System.Double
Dim BUseDefaultRadius As System.Boolean
Dim Radius As System.Double
Dim FlipDir As System.Boolean
Dim BendPos As System.Short
Dim PCBA As CustomBendAllowance
Dim value As Feature
value = instance.InsertSheetMetal3dBend(Angle, BUseDefaultRadius, Radius, FlipDir, BendPos, PCBA)
Feature InsertSheetMetal3dBend( 
   System.double Angle,
   System.bool BUseDefaultRadius,
   System.double Radius,
   System.bool FlipDir,
   System.short BendPos,
   CustomBendAllowance PCBA
Feature^ InsertSheetMetal3dBend( 
&   System.double Angle,
&   System.bool BUseDefaultRadius,
&   System.double Radius,
&   System.bool FlipDir,
&   System.short BendPos,
&   CustomBendAllowance^ PCBA


Angle of the bend in radians

True to use the default radius, false to use the value specified in radius

Value for the radius of the bend if bUseDefaultRadius is false
True to flip the bend direction, false to not

Bend position:

  • 0 = bend centerline

  • 1 = material inside

  • 2 = material outside

  • 3 = bend outside





Pointer to ICustomBendAllowance object for which required values have been set


Parent bend's bend allowance is used

Return Value

Pointer to the IFeature object
