Unhook a shell?

Hello,

What is the proper way to "unhook" a shell from a body, i.e. to create a new body containing the shell?

Thank you!

Hello

 

Sanjeev (manager of the ACIS dev team) and I talked this over.  I think using  api_get_faces on the shell, then api_unhook_faces will work well for this workflow.  See

let us know if you run into problems this way, or if I misunderstood the question.

 

best regards

Thank you! There is no misunderstanding, actually this is what I use but was not sure it's the best way.
