Removes a set of fillet faces from a temporary body and heals the body.

.NET Syntax

Visual Basic (Declaration) 
Function IDeleteBlends3( _
   ByVal NumOfFaces As System.Integer, _
   ByRef FaceList As Face2, _
   ByVal DoLocalCheck As System.Boolean, _
   ByVal UsePlanarCap As System.Boolean _
) As System.Boolean
Visual Basic (Usage) 
Dim instance As IBody2
Dim NumOfFaces As System.Integer
Dim FaceList As Face2
Dim DoLocalCheck As System.Boolean
Dim UsePlanarCap As System.Boolean
Dim value As System.Boolean
value = instance.IDeleteBlends3(NumOfFaces, FaceList, DoLocalCheck, UsePlanarCap)
System.bool IDeleteBlends3( 
   System.int NumOfFaces,
   ref Face2 FaceList,
   System.bool DoLocalCheck,
   System.bool UsePlanarCap
System.bool IDeleteBlends3( 
&   System.int NumOfFaces,
&   Face2^% FaceList,
&   System.bool DoLocalCheck,
&   System.bool UsePlanarCap


Number of faces to delete
  • in-process, unmanaged C++: Pointer to an array of faces of size NumOfFaces to delete
  • VBA, VB.NET, C#, and C++/CLI: Not supported

See In-process Methods for details about this type of method. 

True to perform a local check, false to not
True to use planar caps, false to not (see Remarks)

Return Value

True if the set of fillet faces are removed, false if not


Typically when deleting blends, an entire chain of blends are deleted. However, if only a few blends are deleted from a chain of blends and the UsePlanarCap parameter is not set to true, then the resultant body might be invalid.
