PreSplitBody2 Method (IFeatureManager)

Gets all of the bodies created by splitting a part.

.NET Syntax

Visual Basic (Declaration) 
Function PreSplitBody2() As System.Object
Visual Basic (Usage) 
Dim instance As IFeatureManager
Dim value As System.Object
value = instance.PreSplitBody2()
System.object PreSplitBody2()
System.Object^ PreSplitBody2(); 

Return Value

Array of bodies that result from splitting a part (see Remarks)



The difference between this method and the now obsolete IFeatureManager::PreSplitBody is that this method supports the splitting of surfaces.

To create a split-body feature:

  1. Select the entities to use to split the part into multiple bodies.

  2. Call this method to get all of the bodies created by splitting the part.

  3. Create the split-body feature using IFeatureManager::PostSplitBody.

To find out if the bodies in a split-body feature were consumed, use ISplitBodyFeatureData::Consume.
