How can I get PunchID from Form Tool?

Question asked by Matt Gjertson on Jan 22, 2018

I'm trying to figure out a way to get the Punch ID from a sheet metal forming tool without using a punch table.  I can find the feature itself using GetNextFeature, but according to the help files there is no available interface for this feature.

 

Ideally I'd like to select the feature and get the PunchID directly, but if it's not possible I could settle for adding a custom property for each form tool's Punch ID (if that's even possible either).  Either way, I do need to get the PunchIDs programatically from the part file, not a drawing file.

 

Has anyone achieved anything like this before?
