Add-in that allow us to jog a model (KUKA arm) in real time.

I wrote some code that changes the angle in a model using a slider. The issue is that in order to see the arm moving when the slider changes the angle I am calling swModel.EditRebuild3() and it is very slow, the slider freezes and moves very slowly.


private void AngleSlider_ValueChanged(object sender, RoutedPropertyChangedEventArgs<double> e)


            double angle = slValue.Value;


            // call to move mate

            mDimension.SetValue3(angle, (int)swSetValueInConfiguration_e.swSetValue_UseCurrentSetting, "This Configuration");

            mModel.EditRebuild3();  // It seems very slow



1. Is there a better way to achieve a jogging mode with the API?

2. I have seen there is also a SOLIDWORKS Add-in for motion that does kinematics but does it allow to do jogging too?

3. If SOLIDWORKS Add-in allows jogging does it use the API for the implementation of the Add-in?
