ShapeItemUpAxis Property

The direction defining what is understood as "up" in the shape that the API user is providing. Typically this is the z-axis, if the data is in global coordinates, coming from a system where Z-axis points to global up direction. Possible values are: Undefined = 0, X_Axis = 1, Y_Axis = 2, Z_Axis = 3. It is highly recommendable to orient shapes in the Tekla Structures native way, that is x-axis on the extrusion line and Y-axis pointing up. NOTE: Specifying UpAxis to be ShapeUpAxis.Undefined may throw a ‘System.ArgumentOutOfRangeException’ exception in certain operations, because the system can not proceed without that information.
