Point "n" - [LENGTH] – Location of point[n] of the polyline in the sketch's coordinate system. (IPoint/Location)

Width - [LENGTH] – The width of the line segment used in underlying sweep. (IPath/Width)

Sketch Parameters:

Label – A unique name that identifies the sketch. (ISketch/Label)

Plane – Plane of the solid's coordinate system that the sketch lies in. (ISketch/Plane)

Offset - [LENGTH] – Distance from the origin of the solid's coordinate system to the sketch plane in a direction normal to the chosen sketch plane. (ISketch/PlaneOffset)
