In ACIS the cylindrical face includes pin and hole. Do we have any api or attribuate which can be used to tell hole and pin.
In addition, how can i extract the radius and height of the pin or hole.
Thank you very much.

look at Cone. From there:
- If cosine_angle is positive (+), the sense of the surface is away from the axis of the cone (surface is convex).
- If cosine_angle is negative (-), the sense of the surface is toward the axis of the cone (surface is concave).

I think that these characteristics are calculated. If the cone is a cylinder then one has also a radius. The height of the cone can be calculated from U range of cone. Maybe, there are the functions for that calculations, but I don't know them.
