Create Radiate Surface Feature Example (C#)

This example shows how to create a radiate surface 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.

// 2. Creates Boss-Extrude1 and Surface-Radiate1 in the graphics area and
//    FeatureManager design tree.

// 3. Inspect the Immediate window.
