AddAxialAlign API use

[ Edited ]

Hi ,

In Solid Edge we can create AxialAlign constraints. The function for adding this relationship is

"AddAxial( _
   ByVal Axis1 As Object, _
   ByVal Axis2 As Object, _
   ByVal NormalsAligned As Boolean _
) As AxialRelation3d" ;

the description of the parameter is

"Axis1  Secifies a Reference object derived from the cylindrical face on the first part to be aligned.

Axis2  Secifies a Reference object derived from the cylindrical face on the second part to be aligned.

NormalsAligned  Specifies whether or not to align the normals of the cylindrical faces of the parts."

 

What is exactly the use of "NormalsAligned" parameter? I have tried creating this relatioship using both "true" and "false" value and after that trying "Flip"; but I am not seeing any difference between working of this code.

 

Please let me know the use of this parameter while creating AxialAlign Relation.

 

Thanks,

Onkar

Hi,
I think this parameter has only an effect, if at least one of the faces is conical.
