Using the API I can use swBomTable.SetColumnCustomProperty tochange the custom property that drives a column just as I can usinghte SW UI. Is there also any API that would allow me to drive acolumn via an equation just like I can using the SW UI? Thanks,SolidworksApi macros

Hey everyone I created a simple visual programming GUI for SolidWorks using our PUPPI toolkit, and used the server feature to export the part to an Augmented Reality environment as it is being modified by the user. Let me know what you think - video below! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=scLJOlFS5bE SolidworksApi macros

So, is there anyway to modify the Solidworks built in WeldSymbol creator? We have an older weld symbol standard that we stilluse on our drawings and would like to support it in the automaticcreation of our weld symbols. Problem is, SW calls it outdifferently, and not to the AWS standard we use. Anyone have any tips on how to do this?

Hi, There is possible to autostart a macro when I opening a specifiedpart or assembly? Can I build (or something other way) the macro into the part? The macro has a form, and I'd like the user could change the partbut with the form elements. If the user opens a part and if he have to run the macro manually,he could make changes in the part before he run the macro.

Anyone know what exactly this method is supposed to do? The docs are their usual terse self: "Rotates the component axis by a fixed amount." Gosh thanks. Jim S.SolidworksApi macros

Three different ways for receiving preview of model https://sites.google.com/site/wet72o/ViewModelInForm.zip I will show as it is possible to receive preview model in general without use of assemblies of solidworks a bit later. Hardcore programming))) p.s. no registration, no payment, opensource, OOP SolidworksApi macros

I made a dxf macro that I thought I'd share. The other ones out there didn't do exactly what I needed, so I tinkered for a day. Click a view, run the macro. It saves a 1:1 dxf of the view with all annotations stripped in a DXF folder.

Hi everyone! I am looking for a macro or add-on that runs in the background and everytime I click save in a drawing file it also saves a pdf with the same name in the same location. Trying to not have to click save and click another button to save the pdf. Please know I have zero experience with macros.

I knew I remembered doing it a while back, so for all of those previously asking, this is how to add and remove completely hidden custom properties without SolidWorks (using DM). http://www.angelsix.com/cms/forum/viewtopic.php?f=24&t=305 Luke Malpass AngelSix (SolidWorks Tutorials and Books) BatchProcess SolidworksApi macros

Attached is a macro to toggle "mark for drawing" option in the active part model. It would work on all the dimensions in the active part file (have tested it with some general files only, so report back in case it does not work on all dimensions). Edit: Added codes to rebuild after the macro has completed the task. SolidworksApi macros

I just saw a demo on KBmax and I am very impressed! One thing that really stood out is that each rule can have embedded VB.NET code driving it, along with referencing any .NET assembly out there.... Pretty intense. SolidworksApi macros

I think we are asking the same question. I would like to pick, say 5 points on this spline and move them. You can not box the points and choose them, as far as I can tell. It would be similar to something called "pick walking" in other programs, and maybe possible in Solidworks in the Surfacing/Sub-D portions.

I have been watching this thread with keen interest as it could relate to one of my macros. I've been trying to determine how to allow the user to select a directory from VBA without using VSTA or hardcoding it and generating springs from multiple files based on how they're named. Will that shellApp function do the trick or will a .BAS file need to be referenced? SolidworksApi macros

Is it possible to create a CCD(circumscribed circle diameter) onthe front plane of a part by using a macro. A ccd is the largestcircle that can be drawn around the outermost edge of a part whenviewed from the front plane. This is normally done by drawing acircle that is tangent to 3 radii that are tangent.See attachmentfor example. Thank you SolidworksApi macros

Anybody much smarter then me know how to create an installpackage for an addin I developed? The addin deploys and runs insidesolidworks once i "debug" the project. I now need to take all theassociated put them in an install package. I downloaded a fewfreebie installers, but they were not able to register the "GUID"to the registry.
