I'm trying to write a macro that creates an offset surface then thickens it (ultimately the amount it offsets and thickens will be user input-able but for now i just want it to work)
This code is the only version that has functioned this far. The obvious problem is that I obviously can't count on knowing the Name of the offset surface in advance. Is there any way to get the name of the surface that the "Part.InsertOffsetSurface(0.01, False)" command produces? So that I can use it in the selectbyID command? Or is there any other way to get this to function?
Set swApp = Application.SldWorks
Set Part = swApp.ActiveDoc
boolstatus = Part.InsertOffsetSurface(0.01, False)
boolstatus = Part.Extension.SelectByID2("Surface-Offset38", "REFSURFACE", 0, 0, 0, False, 1, Nothing, 0)
Dim myFeature2 As Object
Set myFeature2 = Part.FeatureManager.FeatureBossThicken(0.01, 1, 0, False, False, True, True)
