InsertRadiateSurface Method (IModelDoc2)

Creates a radiate surface based on the selections.

.NET Syntax

Visual Basic (Declaration) 
Sub InsertRadiateSurface( _
   ByVal Distance As System.Double, _
   ByVal FlipDir As System.Boolean, _
   ByVal TangentPropagate As System.Boolean _
Visual Basic (Usage) 
Dim instance As IModelDoc2
Dim Distance As System.Double
Dim FlipDir As System.Boolean
Dim TangentPropagate As System.Boolean
instance.InsertRadiateSurface(Distance, FlipDir, TangentPropagate)
void InsertRadiateSurface( 
   System.double Distance,
   System.bool FlipDir,
   System.bool TangentPropagate
void InsertRadiateSurface( 
&   System.double Distance,
&   System.bool FlipDir,
&   System.bool TangentPropagate



Distance to extend the surface


True to flip the direction; by default the direction is out from the center of the face


True to propagate the surface along tangent faces, false limits the surface to the selected face



Before calling this method, call IModelDocExtension::SelectByID2 to select

  • Reference direction using Mark = 1.
  • Radiate entities using Mark = 2.

See the SOLIDWORKS Help for information about what entities are valid for selection.
