 Untrim face or surface with temporary geometry using SOLIDWORKS API 

 

Hi Guys 

 

I'm looking for the best method to Untrim a face from my model.

 

Just to be clear I'm not talking about Inserting an Untrim Feature, but using temp bodies.

 

I had a look through IFace2 and ISurface but nothing jumped out at me.

 

I've managed to make a box of the correct size using GetUVBounds(), but then I'm not sure what to to with the rotation part of the transform as you can see below.

 

 

 

I think I have a way to do it, but it seems way more complicated than it should be.

 

Given an IFace2 object that's planar is there a straight forward way?

 

Thanks
