GetFirstFacePair Method (IMidSurface3)

Gets the first pair of parallel faces in this midsurface feature and the thickness (in meters) between the two faces.

.NET Syntax

Visual Basic (Declaration) 
Function GetFirstFacePair( _
   ByRef Thickness As System.Double, _
   ByRef PartnerFaceDisp As System.Object _
) As System.Object
Visual Basic (Usage) 
Dim instance As IMidSurface3
Dim Thickness As System.Double
Dim PartnerFaceDisp As System.Object
Dim value As System.Object
value = instance.GetFirstFacePair(Thickness, PartnerFaceDisp)
System.object GetFirstFacePair( 
   out System.double Thickness,
   out System.object PartnerFaceDisp
System.Object^ GetFirstFacePair( 
&   [Out] System.double Thickness,
&   [Out] System.Object^ PartnerFaceDisp



Distance between these two parallel faces

Face on the original part body used in generating the neutral face

Return Value

Face on the original part body used in generating the neutral face


The two faces returned by this method are the two parallel faces from the original part body that were used to generate the first neutral face in this midsurface feature.

This method is similar to IMidSurface3::GetFirstFace, except this method does not return the neutral face.

Call IMidSurface3::GetNextFacePair to get the next pair of faces in this midsurface feature.
