   ByVal ExtendLinear As System.Boolean, _
   ByVal EndCondition As System.Integer, _
   ByVal Distance As System.Double _
Visual Basic (Usage) 
Dim instance As IModelDoc2
Dim ExtendLinear As System.Boolean
Dim EndCondition As System.Integer
Dim Distance As System.Double
instance.InsertExtendSurface(ExtendLinear, EndCondition, Distance)
void InsertExtendSurface( 
   System.bool ExtendLinear,
   System.int EndCondition,
   System.double Distance
void InsertExtendSurface( 
&   System.bool ExtendLinear,
&   System.int EndCondition,
&   System.double Distance


True to extend surface linearly, false to extend along the same surface
  • 0 - Extend surface by given distance
  • 1 - Extend surface up to a selected point
  • 2 - Extend surface up to a selected surface
Distance to extend surface along


The selection list can contain faces or edges from the surface. These selected entities will be extended away from the surface according to the input arguments.

The selected point or surface to which to extend should be in the selection list. If EndCondition is to a selected surface, then currently only faces from solids are supported through the API.
