    Make .PNG of configuration

    None None

      Hello fellow solidworkers,


      I have been making a marco, when I actived It. It creates a .PNG of your current configuration with the configuration name as the name of the .PNG.


      Now the problem:
      If I have more then one configuration, I need to make .PNG go to the next configuration and make again a .PNG. It's labor intensive. So my question how can I make

      the macro go to the next configuration and make a .PNG.




      Sub CreatePNG()

      Dim sFilename           As String

      Dim sConfigurationname  As String

      Dim sDescription        As String

      Dim sRevision           As String

      Dim sBadChars           As String

      Dim sCheck              As String

      Dim sGetTitle           As String

      Dim Chars               As Variant





      Set swApp = Application.SldWorks

      Set Part = swApp.ActiveDoc


      sDescription = Part.CustomInfo("description")

      sRevision = Part.CustomInfo("revision")

      sFilename = Part.GetPathName

      sGetTitle = Part.GetTitle

      sConfigurationname = swApp.ActiveDoc.ConfigurationManager.ActiveConfiguration.Name

      sBadChars = "\ / : * ? "" < > |"

      sCheck = sRevision & " - " & sDescription

      Chars = Split(sBadChars)





      If (sFilename = "") Then

          Call swApp.SendMsgToUser("No file saved. Please save part or assembly file prior to running macro.")


          If (sDescription = "") Or (sRevision = "") Then

              Call swApp.SendMsgToUser("Please fill in the description/revision.")


              sFilename = Left(sFilename, Len(sFilename) - Len(sGetTitle))

              Debug.Print "Creating .PNG File"

              sFilename = sFilename & "Bew. " & sConfigurationname & ".png"

              Part.SaveAs2 sFilename, 0, True, False

              Debug.Print "Finished"

          End If

      End If

      End Sub
