Interfaces Description
IGeneralMultiPatchCreator Provides access to manage the creation of a GeneralMultiPatch.


GeneralMultipatchCreator is used to create textured multipatches.  Once a multipatch geometry is created, it can be used to make a multipatch graphics element to be added to a scene.  Alternatively, the multipatch geometry can be saved to a File Geodatabase (*.gdb), a Personal Geodatabase (*.mdb), an ArcSDE Database, or a Shapefile (*.shp).  If it's saved to a Shapefile, the texture'd be lost.
