    Problem using createtrimmedsheet with internal loops

    John Yu

      Hi I am new to solidworks API and I need some help with this:

       

      I have a solid body and I used modeler.getbodyoutline2 to obtain the array of curves of the outline of the body when it is projected onto a plane in a specified direction. Then I used this array of curves to create a sheet body using surface.createtrimmedsheet.

       

      However, I noticed is that this does not work when there are internal holes in the outline. (The face of this sheet body will also have negative area)

       

      Am I using createtrimmedsheet wrongly? Is there a proper way to create a sheet body with holes?

       

      Thank you.

      John
