in a SW 2017 part, do you have any idea how to enable/disable the ‘show comment indicator’ of the feature tree in VBA ?
Hi Marquis, I do not think that API codes for ‘show comment indicator’ exits in 2017. I’ve also checked 2018 and did not found any codes related to it.
I am a new user of solidworks and am not very good at it. can i ask you for some tips?
I have started working in engineering after a gap of few years and I am strugling.
Here is some helpful content for SolidWorks Users who are working with sheet metal.
I’ve also started a web site like you and I want to learn the API fundamentals, plz help me !!
i am also wan learn api fundamentals plz help
I struggling with the design of an wooden enclosure build from wooden
panels with miter connections.
What I do now is starting with an volume > shell it and split it.
The problem is that these splits are made in a rectangle.
Can someone point me in the right direction please?
Ed, I’m working on your part and will get something soon for you like the other part I sent you.
That is great! Will you put something
on you’re website or personal?
Either way, thanks a lot.
I need to learn API programming in Solidworks 2010 using VB.
I am unable to find any book which explains me the basic programming format for a API.
I am in the process of automating the twist drill design process. It is not a 100 percent parametric model. I learnt that it is not possible to automate the drill design process 100 percent.
Can you guide me with some reference materials to learn API Programming using VB.
With Best Regards
Depending on what you need is, I can try to play with the macro. Also I have recently started working with DriveWorks which is a design automation software. I’ll see what is the possibility of using DriveWorks for drill design automation. But again I’ll need more inputs on what you’re doing and what is the end result you looking for to move ahead.
