      Does anyone know if you can use a selected edge to insert a sheetmetalunfold in VB.Net?


      My code works with a face selected but i can not get it to work with an edge selected.


      In SW, you can manually insert an unfold by selecting an edge or face.

          Yes - you can do this. You need to mark the selection with "1".

          Note that you can only unfold from a linear edge on the end of a rolled bend (e.g. a cylinder)


          VBA macro:


          boolstatus = Part.Extension.SelectByID2("", "EDGE", -1.135E-02, 5.98E-02, 4.13E-02, False, 1, Nothing, 0)

          boolstatus = Part.Extension.SelectByID2("BaseBend1", "BODYFEATURE", 0, 0, 0, True, 4, Nothing, 0)
