    SolidWorks Document Manager API Get Solid Body Names

    Dan Peacock

      Hi All,

       

      Background: I'm using the SolidWorks Document Manager API to extract Parasolid parts from SolidWorks files.

       

      I can successfully extract the Solid Bodies as Parasolid Transmit and Partition files (using GetImportedBody and GetPartitionStream on the ISwDMConfiguration3 object respectively), but for most files I don't get the friendly names that appear inside SolidWorks in the Project Tree (in a group called Solid Bodies).

       

      Does anyone know if there is a way to get this from the SLDPRT file?

       

      The occasional Parasolid Part seems to have a name attribute set (SDL/TYSA_NAME) but most do not.

       

      Thanks for any advice,

       

      Dan
