I have a question as far as opening components within an assembly using VBA. Is it possible, if at all, to create a macro that will open parts, in order, from the tree of an assembly, and perform a function on that part, and finally saving and closing that part then moving on to the next part?
I was thinking I could start a For Loop, and taking the number of runs to be the total amount of components, like this:
Dim swApp As SldWorks.SldWorks Dim swModel As SldWorks.ModelDoc2 Dim swAssembly As SldWorks.AssemblyDoc Dim CompNum As String Sub main() Set swApp = Application.SldWorks Set swModel = swApp.ActiveDoc Set swAssembly = swApp.ActiveDoc ' Get number of components, not including child components in subassemblies CompNum = swAssembly.GetComponentCount(True) BEGIN LOOP USING CompNum amount of loops *****open part from assembly function (if subassembly, create another for-loop with same procedure) *****perform function on part *****save and close part, back to main assembly END LOOP End main
Is there any simple way of doing this? Essentially, I would like to automate something that needs to be applied to each part / component within an assembly or subassembly.
Thanks in advance
