Parameters

Sd

True for single-ended, false for doubled-ended

Flip

Flip to side cut; true if you want to remove material outside of the profile, false if not

Dir

Reverse direction; true if you want Direction 1 to be opposite of the default direction (see Remarks)

T1

Termination type for first end as defined in swEndConditions_e

T2

Termination type for second end as defined in swEndConditions_e

D1

Depth of extrusion for first end in meters

D2

Depth of extrusion for second end in meters

Dchk1

True allows draft angle in first direction, false does not allow drafting

Dchk2

True allows draft angle in second direction, false does not allow drafting

Ddir1

True for first draft angle to be inward, false to be outward

Ddir2

True for second draft angle to be inward, false be outward

Dang1
Draft angle for first end
Dang2

Draft angle for second end

OffsetReverse1

If you chose to offset the first end condition from another face or plane, then true specifies offset in direction away from the sketch, false specifies offset from the face or plane in a direction toward the sketch

OffsetReverse2

If you chose to offset the second end condition from another face or plane, then true specifies offset in direction away from the sketch, false specifies offset from the face or plane in a direction toward the sketch

TranslateSurface1

When you choose swEndcondOffsetFromSurface as the termination type for the first end, then true specifies that the end of the extrusion is a translation of the reference surface, false specifies to use a true offset

TranslateSurface2

When you choose swEndcondOffsetFromSurface as the termination type for the second end, then true specifies that the end of the extrusion is a translation of the reference surface, false specifies to use a true offset

NormalCut

True ensures that the cut is created normal to the sheet metal thickness, false does not (this argument applies only to sheet metal parts, use false for non-sheet metal parts)

UseFeatScope

True if the feature only affects selected bodies or components, false if the feature affects all bodies or components

UseAutoSelect

True to automatically select all bodies or components and have the feature affect those bodies or components, false to select the bodies or components the feature affects (see Remarks)

Return Value

Pointer to the IFeature object

Remarks

The default direction for cut operations are opposite the sketch normal. The default direction for boss operations is along the sketch normal. Setting the direction arguments to true reverse the default direction. For double-ended extrusions, Direction 2 is always be opposite to Direction 1.

The default sketch normal is the same as the face or plane normal where the sketch was placed. To determine this normal vector, see IFace2::Normal and IRefPlane::Transform, respectively.

When UseAutoSelect is false, the user must select the bodies that the feature will affect.

When using cut or cavity features that result in multiple bodies, you cannot select to keep all of the resulting bodies or one or more selected bodies.
