Hi SolidWorks forum,


I trying to create a macro for exporting an assembly as an image. In this process I need to make sure that RealView graphics is enabled in an assembly.


I have tried the following which i thought was according the API help, but something as far as I can see swMaterial need to bet set first?


Dim swApp As SldWorks.SldWorks

Dim swModel As SldWorks.ModelDoc2

Dim swMaterial As SldWorks.MaterialVisualPropertiesData


Sub main()


    Set swApp = Application.SldWorks

    Set swModel = swApp.ActiveDoc

    swMaterial.RealView = True



From API Help

Dim instance As IMaterialVisualPropertiesData

Dim value As System.Boolean

instance.RealView = value
