Macro for setting the same image quality to all files from a given folder (and sub-folders)

Starting with SOLIDWORKS 2016 the software uses multicore CPU technology to reduce the time it takes to regenerate the graphics display of large assemblies.

Instead of processing components individually, all of the bodies of every component that need to be retessellated are gathered together, allowing parallel tessellation of longer lists of bodies.


In order for that to happen, all components of the assembly have to have the same image quality setting.

2016 What's New in SOLIDWORKS - Parallel Tessellation When Regenerating Assembly Graphics


I am wondering if one of you programming gurus would consider writing a macro that would open all files from a given folder, change the image quality to the same number and save the files.


Ideally the user should be prompt to:


1. Select the folder

2. Have an option for including sub-folders or not

3. Input an integer (1-100) to define the image quality


Many thanks to the person who will publish such a macro that could run in SW 2016.
