This function saves the current model on location file name.


public const string EngineDLL = @"engine.dll";[DllImport(EngineDLL, EntryPoint = "SaveModel")]
public static extern Int64 SaveModel(Int64 model, string fileName);

[DllImport(EngineDLL, EntryPoint = "SaveModel")]
public static extern Int64 SaveModel(Int64 model, byte[] fileName);    

Property model

Size: 64 bit / 8 byte (value)
The handle to the model. The model handle is static during its existance. Several models can be opened simultaniously within one session. Different models are always independent, threads are allowed to be running on different models simultaniously.

Property fileName

Size: 32 bit / 4 byte (reference)
The file name of the file as available in the file system in ASCII (char *). The given char array will not be adjusted, on each OS the size of a char element is 8 bit / 1 byte.


Here you can find code snippits that show how the API call SaveModel can be used.

        Engine.x86_64.SetDatatypeProperty(myInstanceCone, propertySegmentationParts, ref segmentationParts, 1);

        //  The resulting model can be viewed in 3D-Editor.exe
        Engine.x86_64.SaveModel(model, System.Text.Encoding.ASCII.GetBytes("c:\\created\\myFile.bin"));

        //  In case it is sure the individual characters within the string are ASCII we can ignore the encoding translation.
        Engine.x86_64.SaveModel(model, "c:\\created\\sameMyFile.bin");
