I am interested in this macro 3D ContentCentral and I am attempting to modify it to do 2 additional things:
1) Use the partnumber added in the Configuration Properties under Bill of material options (part number displayed when used in a bill of materials) instead of the configuration name.
Part name is MWS, current config is 2418-WM, so current name looks like:
What I am trying to achieve is
2) I would like to add the abilities of options as found in another macro Export_DXF that would allow me to export the flat pattern with bendlines etc.etc.
In my first attempts I added in some lines from this example: http://help.solidworks.com/2012/English/api/sldworksapi/Get_List_Of_Configurations_Example_VB.htm
Debug.Print " ConfigName(" + Str(i) + ") = " + sConfigName
Debug.Print " UseAlternateNameInBOM = " + Str(swConfig.UseAlternateNameInBOM)
Debug.Print " AlternateName = " + swConfig.alternateName
Debug.Print " Comment = " + swConfig.comment
With no success. I am able to copy and paste and track down some data flow through a macro. but I find myself getting stuck on what I feel are simple things. I would greatly appreciate some help with this macro and some advice, would taking a SW macro course be a good idea with no VB background?
Thank you for your time,
