Surface Trim

Does anyone know how to get the contour data and edge data for a surface
trim?



Here is the context.



1. Surface is copied from Part A and pasted into Part B.
2. That surface in Part B is trimmed with a quilt in Part A.



How do I programmatically get the contour and edge data out of the
result of the trim? It's not being visited by the call
ProMdlSurfaceVisit. Has anyone done this?

RE: Surface Trim

Here is how I solved it.

1. Call ProSolidFeatVisit filtering out everything but surfaces.
2. Call ProFeatureGeomitemVisit on PRO_SURFACE objects. This will
visit in this case 11 surfaces. The trim is 4 surfaces and the original
is a flat with 3 cylinders in it (7 surfaces).
3. Call ProSurfaceContourVisit on each of the 11 surfaces. 10 of the
11 surfaces don't have contours so the only contours that are visited
are the ones belonging to the surface I actually care about.
4. Call ProContourEdgeVisit to get the edge data.

I would like to know in step 2 if I can somehow filter out the 10 of the
11 surfaces? Or is there a better way to go about doing this?
