    Create a planar surface

    Dennis Moll

      Hello together,


      i have problems to create a working planar surface in C#. My first try with random coordinates was this where mSWmodeler is the modeler.


      double[] surfaceRoot = new double[3] {0, 0, 0};

      double[] surfaceNormal = new double[3] {1, 0, 0 };

      double[] surfaceCoordinateSystem = new double[3] { 1, 0, 0 };

      Surface intersectionPlane = (Surface)mSWModeler.CreatePlanarSurface2(surfaceRoot, surfaceNormal, surfaceCoordinateSystem);

      bool test = intersectionPlane.IsPlane();


      But every time i use the surface in a method, e.g. the IsPlane here or Surface::IntersectCurve(), solidworks crashes with the error: exception of HRRESULT: 0x80010108 (RPC_E_DISCONNECTED))


      Another idea was this:


      mSWBody.CreatePlanarSurface(surfaceRoot, surfaceNormal);


      This doesn't return the surface and the the surface does't show up in the featuretree or the 3dmodel. I hope someone could help me.
