c# FeatureExtrusionThin2 not creating bends

Hi all,


I have a c# SolidWorks API project I'm working on where I need to create a couple of mid-plane thin feature extrudes.

I wrote the method below that works perfectly except for the bends:


        public static void ExtrudeSketch_Thin(string SketchName, double value, double thickness, bool fillet, double filletRadius)
            ModelDoc2 swModel = (ModelDoc2)swApp.ActiveDoc;
            SelectionMgr swSelectionMgr = swModel.SelectionManager;
            Feature swFeature;

            swModel.Extension.SelectByID2(SketchName, "SKETCH", 0, 0, 0, false, 0, null, 0);
            swFeature = swSelectionMgr.GetSelectedObject6(1, -1);
                (true, false, true, 6, 6, value / 1000, 0, false, false, false, false, 0, 0, false, false, false, false, true, thickness / 1000, 0, 0, 2, 1, fillet, filletRadius, false, false, (int)swStartConditions_e.swStartSketchPlane, 0.0, false);


(2016 SOLIDWORKS API Help - FeatureExtrusionThin2 Method (IFeatureManager)


The bends do not appear on the part despite being in the PropertyManager. So once the model is created I can open the PropertyManager for a specific thin feature extrude, close it (without making any changes) and only then will the bends appear. My usual hack of calling swModel.ForceRebuild3(true); an ungodly amount of times doesn't make any difference here.


Any thoughts?
