HSMWorks API (automation for G-code generation)

Hello,

 

I am new to HSMWorks. I would like create a Solidworks add-in to automate 2D miling (trace) and G-code generation using HSMWorks.

 

I know that HSMWorks also provides an API to automate tasks like toolpath generation and post processing. I was wondering if there are any tutorials / videos about that API so that I can have a look.

 

Basically I want to automate the following: Start a new job, 2D Miling > Trace and finally Post Process for G-code generation. I checked the example file located in C:\Program Files\HSMWorks\api but that doesn't really have details about how to accomplish this. Can anyone please help me?

 

 

Kind regards,

Doga
