This can be done via CAE.ModelCheck.ElementMaterialOrientationCheckBuilder. The DoCheck() method will return an array of vectors that depend on the settings (a single vector for shells, and one, two or all 3 vectors for solids).

 

Record a journal of the process of doing a material orientation check to see the code.
