.NET Syntax

Visual Basic (Declaration) 
Function CreateToroidalSurface( _
   ByVal Center As System.Object, _
   ByVal Axis As System.Object, _
   ByVal RefDirection As System.Object, _
   ByVal MajorRadius As System.Double, _
   ByVal MinorRadius As System.Double _
) As System.Object
Visual Basic (Usage) 
Dim instance As IModeler
Dim Center As System.Object
Dim Axis As System.Object
Dim RefDirection As System.Object
Dim MajorRadius As System.Double
Dim MinorRadius As System.Double
Dim value As System.Object
value = instance.CreateToroidalSurface(Center, Axis, RefDirection, MajorRadius, MinorRadius)
System.object CreateToroidalSurface( 
   System.object Center,
   System.object Axis,
   System.object RefDirection,
   System.double MajorRadius,
   System.double MinorRadius
System.Object^ CreateToroidalSurface( 
&   System.Object^ Center,
&   System.Object^ Axis,
&   System.Object^ RefDirection,

Return Value

Untrimmed toroidal surface


Input arguments:

  • Center XYZ location that represents the center of the spherical surface.

  • Axis XYZ direction of the axis of the spherical surface.

  • RefDirection XYZ direction of the reference axis of the spherical surface; it must be perpendicular to the axis.

  • MajorRadius major radius of the toroidal surface.

  • MinorRadius minor radius of the toroidal surface.

The resulting surface can be trimmed using a method like ISurface::CreateTrimmedSheet or ISurface::CreateTrimmedSheet3 to generate a sheet body.
