ICreateBodiesFromSheets2 Method (IModeler)

Sews sheets to make a sheet (surface) or solid bodies.

.NET Syntax

Visual Basic (Declaration) 
Function ICreateBodiesFromSheets2( _
   ByVal NSheets As System.Integer, _
   ByRef Sheets As Body2, _
   ByVal Options As System.Integer, _
   ByVal KnittingTolerance As System.Double, _
   ByRef NResults As System.Integer, _
   ByRef Results As Body2 _
) As System.Integer
Visual Basic (Usage) 
Dim instance As IModeler
Dim NSheets As System.Integer
Dim Sheets As Body2
Dim Options As System.Integer
Dim KnittingTolerance As System.Double
Dim NResults As System.Integer
Dim Results As Body2
Dim value As System.Integer
value = instance.ICreateBodiesFromSheets2(NSheets, Sheets, Options, KnittingTolerance, NResults, Results)
System.int ICreateBodiesFromSheets2( 
   System.int NSheets,
   ref Body2 Sheets,
   System.int Options,
   System.double KnittingTolerance,
   out System.int NResults,
   out Body2 Results
System.int ICreateBodiesFromSheets2( 
&   System.int NSheets,
&   Body2^% Sheets,
&   System.int Options,
&   System.double KnittingTolerance,
&   [Out] System.int NResults,
&   [Out] Body2^ Results



Number of sheets


Array containing the sheets
Type of body to create as defined by swSheetSewingOption_e
Knitting tolerance
Number of sheet or solid bodies created
Array of the sheet or solid bodies

Return Value

Error as defined by swSheetSewingError_e


It is safest to assume that the maximum number of bodies that can be returned by this method is the number of sheet input bodies. Your code should look like this:


aBodies = new IBody2*[lNumSheetBodies];

hres = swModeler->ICreateBodiesFromSheets2(lNumSheetBodies, aSheetBodies, swSewToSheets, 1e-6, &lNumBodies, aBodies, &lErrors);
