InsertRevolvedRefSurface Method (IFeatureManager)

Creates a revolved reference surface by revolving a profile around a centerline.

.NET Syntax

Visual Basic (Declaration) 
Function InsertRevolvedRefSurface( _
   ByVal Angle As System.Double, _
   ByVal ReverseDir As System.Boolean, _
   ByVal Angle2 As System.Double, _
   ByVal RevType As System.Integer _
) As Feature
Visual Basic (Usage) 
Dim instance As IFeatureManager
Dim Angle As System.Double
Dim ReverseDir As System.Boolean
Dim Angle2 As System.Double
Dim RevType As System.Integer
Dim value As Feature
value = instance.InsertRevolvedRefSurface(Angle, ReverseDir, Angle2, RevType)
Feature InsertRevolvedRefSurface( 
   System.double Angle,
   System.bool ReverseDir,
   System.double Angle2,
   System.int RevType
Feature^ InsertRevolvedRefSurface( 
&   System.double Angle,
&   System.bool ReverseDir,
&   System.double Angle2,
&   System.int RevType


Angle of revolution in radians

Angle is positive or negative (True or false)


Angle of revolution in radians


Type of revolution (see Remarks)

Return Value

Pointer to IFeature object


Make the selections using IModelDocExtension::SelectByID2 before calling this method. See the SOLIDWORKS Help for information about what entities are valid for selection.


The RevType argument can be one of these values:

  • 0 = One direction revolution. 

  • 1 = MidPlane revolution. For this type of revolve, the angle specification specifies the full revolution. The angle to revolve is (angle/2) on either side of the sketch. The ReverseDir argument has no effect. 

  • 2 = Two direction revolution. For a two direction revolve, Angle is the angle to revolve in Direction1 and Angle2 is the angle to revolve in Direction2.

This method does not support 3D sketches.
