The object invoked has disconnected from its clients

Hi all,


Thanks to the great help here my PDM task worked great for a few weeks, until we updated to Solidworks 2018, which no longer supports ExportFlatPatternView.


I now have to use ExportToDWG2 which is much more complicated to use.


I have attached the relevant code below, which is mostly copied from the example provided in the API help. It seems to mostly be okay, except the last line bRet = swModel.ExportToDWG2 which gets an error "The object invoked has disconnected from its clients". From my understanding this is because swModel no longer exists, but I am not sure why or how to fix it.


Would anyone be able to suggest how to get this working again?


Thank a lot,


If sheetMetal <> 0 Then
            Dim bRet As Boolean
            Dim sfilePath As String
            sfilePath = swModel.GetPathName
            Dim varAlignment As Variant
            Dim dataAlignment(11) As Double
            dataAlignment(0) = 0#
            dataAlignment(1) = 0#
            dataAlignment(2) = 0#
            dataAlignment(3) = 1#
            dataAlignment(4) = 0#
            dataAlignment(5) = 0#
            dataAlignment(6) = 0#
            dataAlignment(7) = 1#
            dataAlignment(8) = 0#
            dataAlignment(9) = 0#
            dataAlignment(10) = 0#
            dataAlignment(11) = 1#
            varAlignment = dataAlignment
            Dim options As Long
            options = 1
            bRet = swModel.ExportToDWG2(savePath, sfilePath, 1, True, varAlignment, False, False, options, Null)
        End If
