I need to get all faces perimeter of a selected feature. I found similar macro to find Area of a selected feature.

But I don't know how to get Perimeter.


..... Find Area.....


Sub Main()

    Dim swApp As SldWorks.SldWorks
    Dim swModel As SldWorks.ModelDoc2
    Dim swPart As SldWorks.PartDoc
    Dim swFeat As SldWorks.Feature
    Dim swFaceFeat As SldWorks.Feature
    Dim swSelMgr As SldWorks.SelectionMgr
    Dim swFace As SldWorks.Face2
    Dim swEnt As SldWorks.Entity
    Dim faceArr As Variant
    Dim oneFace As Variant
    Dim status As Boolean
    Dim Area As Double
    Dim TotalArea As Double

    'Initial Setup
    Set swApp = Application.SldWorks
    Set swModel = swApp.ActiveDoc
    Set swPart = swModel
    Set swSelMgr = swModel.SelectionManager

        Set swFeat = swSelMgr.GetSelectedObject6(1, -1)
        faceArr = swFeat.GetFaces: If IsEmpty(faceArr) Then Exit Sub
        For Each oneFace In faceArr
            Set swFace = oneFace
            Set swEnt = swFace
            Set swFaceFeat = swFace.GetFeature
        ' Check to see if face is owned by multiple features
            If swFaceFeat Is swFeat Then
                'status = swEnt.Select4(True, swSelData): Debug.Assert (status)
        'Measures area of current face
                Area = swFace.GetArea

 Debug.Print Area
            End If

End Sub
