1 to reverse the projected direction

Return Value

Newly created feature or NULL if the operation fails


You can reverse the direction in which the curve is projected. This is necessary only when the selected face wraps around the plane of the curve. For example, if the sketch being projected is surrounded by a cylindrical face, then two possible projections exist. The Reverse argument switches the direction based on the normal vector of the sketch. The default direction is along the sketch normal.
