Parameters

Propagate
True propagates the swept protrusion to the next tangent edge, false does not
Alignment

True causes the swept protrusion to go through the end faces if the curve used for the sweep goes from one face to another or from one edge to another, false causes the swept protrusion to begin and end perpendicular to the sweep curve and it cannot break through the two end faces of the body

TwistCtrlOption
Twist control options as defined in swTwistControlType_e
KeepTangency
If the sweep section has tangent segments, then true to cause the corresponding surfaces in the resulting sweep to be tangent, false to not
BAdvancedSmoothing
If the sweep section has circular or elliptical arcs, then true to approximate the sections and smooth the surfaces, false to 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)
Merge
True to merge the results in a multibody part, false to not
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 set to swTwistControlType_e.swTwistControlConstantTwistAlongPath, then specify end twist angle
BMergeSmoothFaces
True to merge smooth faces, false to not

Return Value

Pointer to the IFeature object

Remarks

Use IModelDocExtension::SelectByID2 to select the profile and sweep curves. The mark for:

  • 1 = Profile selection

  • 2 = Guide curve selection, if provided

  • 4 = Sweep path

The PathAlign argument is available when TwistCtrlOption is set to 0 (follow path) 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.
