Converts the TIN to a feature class comprised of one or more multipatches. To perform this the TIN is turned into triangle strips that are used as parts in output multipatches.

pFeatureClass is the target. It needs to be an existing, empty, multipatch based FeatureClass.

maxPatchSize is the maximum number of triangle strips to use as parts for each output multipatch.

maxStripSize is the maximum number of vertices to use in each triangle strip.
