.NET Syntax

Visual Basic (Declaration) 
Function CreateBodyFromFaces2( _
   ByVal NumOfFaces As System.Integer, _
   ByVal Faces As System.Object, _
   ByVal ActionType As System.Integer, _
   ByVal DoLocalCheck As System.Boolean, _
   ByRef LocalCheckResult As System.Boolean _
) As System.Object
Visual Basic (Usage) 
Dim instance As IModeler
Dim NumOfFaces As System.Integer
Dim Faces As System.Object
Dim ActionType As System.Integer
Dim DoLocalCheck As System.Boolean
Dim LocalCheckResult As System.Boolean
Dim value As System.Object
value = instance.CreateBodyFromFaces2(NumOfFaces, Faces, ActionType, DoLocalCheck, LocalCheckResult)
System.object CreateBodyFromFaces2( 
   System.int NumOfFaces,
   System.object Faces,
   System.int ActionType,
   System.bool DoLocalCheck,
   out System.bool LocalCheckResult
System.Object^ CreateBodyFromFaces2( 
&   System.int NumOfFaces,
&   System.Object^ Faces,
&   System.int ActionType,
&   System.bool DoLocalCheck,
&   [Out] System.bool LocalCheckResult


Number of faces
Array of the faces
Type of action as defined in swCreateFacesBodyAction_e
True to perform local checking on the resulting body, false to not
If DoLocalCheck is True, then True if body is okay, false if not

Return Value

Body or NULL if the operation fails


This method is useful when you attempt to copy a body with changes to that body. All of the input faces must be from the same body.

If you call this method to remove a hole, then the value that you specify for ActionType indicates to the modeler how to handle filling the hole. The result must be a solid.

This method is the opposite of IBody2::DeleteFaces3 or IBody2::IDeleteFaces3, which allows you to specify faces to remove.
