Get Shut-Off Surface Data Example (C#)

This example shows how to get a shut-off surface feature's data.

//----------------------------------------------------------------------------
// Preconditions: Open a model that contains a Shut-Off Surface1 feature with
// the patch type of swShutOffSurfacePatchType_e.swPatchTypeTangent = 2.
//
// Postconditions:
// 1. Gets Shut-Off Surface1 data.
// 2. Gets the tangent faces for the specified loops where to create the patches.
// 3. Creates the patches on the opposite tangent faces.
// 4. Examine the graphic area and Immediate window.
