IExtendSurface Method (IBody2)

Creates a new temporary body by extending the selected edges.

.NET Syntax

Visual Basic (Declaration) 
Function IExtendSurface( _
   ByVal EdgeCount As System.Integer, _
   ByRef EdgesToExtend As Edge, _
   ByVal ExtendLinear As System.Boolean, _
   ByVal EndCondition As System.Integer, _
   ByVal Dist As System.Double, _
   ByVal PUpToVtx As Vertex, _
   ByVal PUpToFace As Face _
) As Body2
Visual Basic (Usage) 
Dim instance As IBody2
Dim EdgeCount As System.Integer
Dim EdgesToExtend As Edge
Dim ExtendLinear As System.Boolean
Dim EndCondition As System.Integer
Dim Dist As System.Double
Dim PUpToVtx As Vertex
Dim PUpToFace As Face
Dim value As Body2
value = instance.IExtendSurface(EdgeCount, EdgesToExtend, ExtendLinear, EndCondition, Dist, PUpToVtx, PUpToFace)
Body2 IExtendSurface( 
   System.int EdgeCount,
   ref Edge EdgesToExtend,
   System.bool ExtendLinear,
   System.int EndCondition,
   System.double Dist,
   Vertex PUpToVtx,
   Face PUpToFace
Body2^ IExtendSurface( 
&   System.int EdgeCount,
&   Edge^% EdgesToExtend,
&   System.bool ExtendLinear,
&   System.int EndCondition,
&   System.double Dist,
&   Vertex^ PUpToVtx,
&   Face^ PUpToFace


Number of edges to extend
Array of the selected edges to extend
True to extend the selected edges linearly along the tangent of the face at the edges; false to extend the selected edges in the same direction as the face
  • 0 = Extend selected edges per value specified for Dist
  • 1 = Extend selected edges to PUpToVtx
  • 2 = Extend selected edges to PpUpToFace

 Distance by which to extend the selected edges (see Remarks)

Vertex up to which to extend the selected edges  (see Remarks)
Face up to which to extend the selected edges (see Remarks)

Return Value

Pointer to the newly created IBody2 object


This method supports surface bodies only.

You can extend the edges by a specified distance or up to a vertex or up to a face.
