   ByVal Flip As System.Boolean, _
   ByVal KeepPieceIndex As System.Integer _
Visual Basic (Usage) 
Dim instance As IModelDoc2
Dim Flip As System.Boolean
Dim KeepPieceIndex As System.Integer
instance.InsertCutSurface(Flip, KeepPieceIndex)
void InsertCutSurface( 
   System.bool Flip,
   System.int KeepPieceIndex
void InsertCutSurface( 
&   System.bool Flip,
&   System.int KeepPieceIndex



True to flip the direction, false to not


Piece to keep if there is ambiguity


When there is ambiguity in the result of a cut, KeepPieceIndex is used to resolve which of the possible results is used. This can be set to -1 if there is no ambiguity; otherwise, it should be the index of the result, starting from 0 (up to one less than the possible number of outcomes).
