ICreateTrimmedSheet4 Method (ISurface)

Creates a trimmed sheet body from this surface.

.NET Syntax

Visual Basic (Declaration) 
Function ICreateTrimmedSheet4( _
   ByVal NCurves As System.Integer, _
   ByRef Curves As Curve, _
   ByVal PreserveAnalyticCurves As System.Boolean _
) As Body
Visual Basic (Usage) 
Dim instance As ISurface
Dim NCurves As System.Integer
Dim Curves As Curve
Dim PreserveAnalyticCurves As System.Boolean
Dim value As Body
value = instance.ICreateTrimmedSheet4(NCurves, Curves, PreserveAnalyticCurves)
Body ICreateTrimmedSheet4( 
   System.int NCurves,
   ref Curve Curves,
   System.bool PreserveAnalyticCurves
Body^ ICreateTrimmedSheet4( 
&   System.int NCurves,
&   Curve^% Curves,
&   System.bool PreserveAnalyticCurves



Number of curves in the array of curves


Array of curves that represent the boundary of the sheet


True to preserve analytic curves, false to store all trimming curves as SP-curves

Return Value

Newly created sheet body


The array of curves represents all of the curves required to add the appropriate trimming loops to the surface. A NULL entry in the array represents the separation between loops.

The curves supplied are assumed to lie on the surface. If the curves are 2D curves, then they should be created using this surface.

If your application is creating a trimmed sheet body from an input periodical surface without trimming curves, then the curve array may be empty.

Before calling this method, trim the curves created by IModeler::ICreateArc and IModeler::ICreateLine by calling ICurve::CreateTrimmedCurve2. Elliptical curves created by IModeler::ICreateEllipse do not need to be trimmed before calling this method.
