ISketchSegment::SplitEntity() fails during in-context part editing

Question asked by Nikola Malesevic on Apr 6, 2017

ISketchSegment::SplitEntity() method fails when performing an in-context part editing.


I create a new 2D sketch, draw one horizontal line from (-100, 0) to (100, 0), in millimeters, and then execute the code below:


IModelDoc2 document = _iSwApp.ActiveDoc; // _iSwApp is ISldWorks object.
ISelectionMgr sm = document.SelectionManager;
ISketchSegment segment = sm.GetSelectedObject6(1, -1);
//segment.ConstructionGeometry = true; // Converting to construction line works just fine, but I'm not interested in it.
segment.SplitEntity(0.010, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0);


Three scenarios:

  • Part editing, sketch belongs to the part: works fine, the line is split at 10 mm right of the origin.
  • Assembly editing, sketch belongs to the assembly: works fine, the line is split at 10 mm right of the origin.
  • Part in-context editing, sketch belongs to the part within an assembly: throws an exception below.

I am suspecting yet another bug with in-context editing.

Can anybody confirm or deny the behavior?
