    Run a macro during a PDM Task

    Raul Borobio



      I'm not so experienced with the SW / EPDM Api. I need to run a simple piece of code during a EPDM task.

      We need to generate a dxf and a pdf from a .dft file (Solid Edge).

      I've tried to replace the convert() function by my code with no success.


      Dim objApp As SolidEdgeFramework.Application

      Dim objDoc As SolidEdgeDraft.DraftDocument

      Dim objSheet As SolidEdgeDraft.Sheet



      Dim FilePath_VA As String



          Set objApp = CreateObject("SolidEdge.Application")

          objApp.DisplayAlerts = False




                  FilePath_VA = "C:\Users\raul.SERVER\Desktop\ES_007162.dft"



                  Set objDoc = objApp.Documents.Open(FilePath_VA)



                  objApp.Visible = True



                  objDoc.SaveAs ("C:\Users\raul.SERVER\Desktop\ES_007162.pdf")



                  Call objDoc.Close



      Call objApp.Quit

      Set objApp = Nothing

      Set objDoc = Nothing

      Set objSheet = Nothing


      I understand that the task add-in needs to open and save files from a solidworks file. Then, I was asking myself if is it possible to trigger a 'dummy' solidworks file that trigger my Solid Edge macro. If yes, what about the generated files, will them be added to vault and checked in?


      Sombebody has coded something similar?


      Thank you in advance.
