Parameters

Propagate
True propagates the sweep cut to the next edge, false causes the sweep cut to occur only on the selected edge; to propagate to the next edge, the next edge must be tangent to the current edge
Alignment
If the curve used to sweep goes from one face to another or from one edge to another, then true causes the sweep to cut completely through the end faces of the cut, and false causes the cut to begin and end perpendicular to the sweep curve; therefore, it may not break through the two end faces of the body being cut
TwistCtrlOption
Twist control options as defined in swTwistControlType_e
KeepTangency
If the sweep section has tangent segments, true causes the corresponding surfaces in the resulting sweep to be tangent, false does not
BAdvancedSmoothing
If the sweep section has circular or elliptical arcs, true approximates the sections and smooths the surfaces, false does not
StartMatchingType
Tangency type as defined in swTangencyType_e
EndMatchingType
Tangency type as defined in swTangencyType_e
IsThinBody
True if this feature is a thin body, false if not
Thickness1
Thickness value for the first direction
Thickness2
Thickness value for the second direction
ThinType
Thin wall type as defined in swThinWallType_e
PathAlign
Align path type (see Remarks)
UseFeatScope
True if the feature only affects selected bodies, false if the feature affects all bodies
UseAutoSelect
True to automatically select all bodies and have the feature affect those bodies, false to select the bodies the feature affects (see Remarks)
TwistAngle
If TwistCtrlOption is set to swTwistControlType_e.swTwistControlConstantTwistAlongPath, then specify end twist angle
BMergeSmoothFaces
True to merge smooth faces, false to not
AssemblyFeatureScope
True if the sweep cut affects only selected components in the assembly, false if the sweep cut affects all components in the assembly (see Remarks)
AutoSelectComponents
True to auto-select all affected components in the assembly, false to use manually selected components (see Remarks)
PropagateFeatureToParts
True to extend the sweep cut feature to all affected parts in the assembly, false to just insert the sweep cut into the assembly (see Remarks)

Return Value

Pointer to the IFeature object

Example

Remarks

Before calling this method, call IModelDocExtension::SelectByID2 multiple times to select the profile, guide curves, and sweep path for the cut, setting the Mark parameter in each case as follows:

  • 1 = Profile selection

  • 2 = Guide-curve selection, if provided

  • 4 = Sweep path selection

The PathAlign argument is available when TwistCtrlOption is set to 0 and can take one of these values:

  • 0 = None; no correction (default)

  • 2 = Direction vector; a plane, planar face, or line defines the path

  • 3 = All faces; includes neighboring faces

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. 

Use AssemblyFeatureScope, AutoSelectComponents, and PropagateFeatureToParts to insert sweep cuts into an assembly. AssemblyFeatureScope and AutoSelectComponents perform just like the configuration of the Feature Scope section on the PropertyManager page of the sweep feature:

AssemblyFeatureScope setting AutoSelectComponents setting PropertyManager page Feature Scope setting
False Ignored

All components selected

Auto-select not visible

True

If true, affected components are automatically selected

If false, manually select the affected components in the view before calling this API

Selected components selected

If Auto-select is not seelcted, then manually select affected components in the view
