      How are you doing? I hope you're having great time att work.

      Few weeks ago I created macro/api that takes dimension from drawing, put baloon and writes row in table (this table is specially created for company that I work for). The goal was not to write and calculate it by hand everytime. It's my one of my first API.

      Here on this forum a lot of you are very experienced users that works with API every day. I attach my API so maybe someone will find it usefull. Maybe some of you have some ideas how can I improve it? Maybe you can commanet what is wrong and how schould I do that instead?

      We all learn all the time something new so I will be gretefull for all your comments and advices.


      Shortly how doeas that work:

      1. Mark dimension, line or text with lenght on drawing

      2. Go to solidworks and press F5 in "BOM_Creator1" module.


      I've forgotten to mention that it's for DraftSight


      Have a nice day!
