Due to SW limitations on dimensioning volumes, I need a macro to do a certain job. However, due to my inexperience, I don't know how to write it.
I'm attaching the model so you can see. Generated in SW2013.
There is a 3D solid body. There is also a plane which intersects the body, and cuts off part of it (Surface Cut command). The plane's position is controlled by 2 dimensions - Angle at which the model is cut (Angle@Cut Angle), and how close the plane is to the center of the body (Depth@Cut Depth).
In Equations window, user inputs the Desired Volume, Error Margin and Angle, manually, and as the model is rebuilt, the macro should adjust Depth@Cut Depth by trial and error to set the Volume of the body in 10% Error Margin.
Again, the macro should:
1. Run every time model is rebuilt;
2. Compare Volume to Desired Volume;
2. Adjust Depth dimension in Cut Depth plane by trial and error until these Volume is within 10% of Desired Volume
Can anybody help me out to write this macro? I need not only to write it, but to understand it, because I'll be using it for much more complex model.
