Create Projection Split Line Feature Example (VBA)

This example shows how to create a projection split line feature.

' Preconditions:
' 1. Verify that the specified document template exists.
' 2. Open an Immediate window.
' Postconditions:
' 1. Creates a new model document with a feature extrusion, reference plane,
'    and sketch of an ellipse.
' 2. Creates Split Line1 in the FeatureManager design tree.
' 3. Inspect the Immediate window.
