Create Sweep from Sketch Macro

Question asked by John Maldonado on Aug 21, 2017

I'm pretty new to the macro world, but I was trying to make a macro to create a circular profile sweep with a 0.25"OD from a newly inserted (or currently selected) 3D sketch.

I do this very often so saving the few clicks and key strokes it takes would be amazing. I recorded the steps I take with the macro recorder. The problem I run into is that it only works with the first inserted sketch. Below is my code. I'm pretty sure why it's doing it. But I don't know how to change it to accept any 3d sketch. Any help is appreciated. Thank you.
