Hi all,

 

I'm building a macro feature. I would like to perform a FLEX operation, wrapping a solid body around a cylinder. I can do this easily in Solidworks with the flex tool and I can write a macro to do this. However is this possible to do within the rebuild method of a macro feature.

 

It says here.

 

2011 SOLIDWORKS API Help - Rebuild Function 

No new features can be introduced and no user interaction can occur during a rebuild of a model containing a macro feature.

 

Now I don't actually want to create a flex feature. I just want to use the IBody2 result that comes out of it and return that as the result of the rebuild function.
