I'm evaluating SolidWorks just for the combine feature (booleans).
I need to implement the following pseudo code:
1] find all .obj files in a specific folder
2] loop over each .obj file:
- create a new part
- import the obj
- save the part in a folder
3] create a new part
4] load all parts that were just saved
5] save this as a new part
6] select all solids (that were imported before)
7] use 'combine' to create a new solid
8] select and export the resulting solid as .stl or similar.
9] coffee break
I'm not sure if this is best done with a macro or an add-in.
If with an add-in and a button and some fields to edit, I'd like to write this in C# in Visual Studio (.Net). [ I'm a C# newbie though. ]
Any pointer on the best direction would be much appreciated.
