ToolsCheckInterference2 Method (IAssemblyDoc)

Checks the interference between parts in the assembly.

.NET Syntax

Visual Basic (Declaration) 
Sub ToolsCheckInterference2( _
   ByVal NumComponents As System.Integer, _
   ByVal LpComponents As System.Object, _
   ByVal CoincidentInterference As System.Boolean, _
   ByRef PComp As System.Object, _
   ByRef PFace As System.Object _
Visual Basic (Usage) 
Dim instance As IAssemblyDoc
Dim NumComponents As System.Integer
Dim LpComponents As System.Object
Dim CoincidentInterference As System.Boolean
Dim PComp As System.Object
Dim PFace As System.Object
instance.ToolsCheckInterference2(NumComponents, LpComponents, CoincidentInterference, PComp, PFace)
void ToolsCheckInterference2( 
   System.int NumComponents,
   System.object LpComponents,
   System.bool CoincidentInterference,
   out System.object PComp,
   out System.object PFace
void ToolsCheckInterference2( 
&   System.int NumComponents,
&   System.Object^ LpComponents,
&   System.bool CoincidentInterference,
&   [Out] System.Object^ PComp,
&   [Out] System.Object^ PFace



Number of components to check


Array of components being checked for interference

True to check for coincident interference, false to not

Array of components where interference has been found


Array of faces where interference has been found



This method returns:

  • an empty array of faces for components that have coincident faces that touch.

  • an array of components for components that touch.

For each face that intersects, there is a corresponding component.


NOTE: The obsolete IAssemblyDoc::ToolsCheckInterference method displays the Interference Detection PropertyManager page, and IAssemblyDoc::ToolsCheckInterference2 does not.
