As you know SOLIDWORKS can be automated in different ways: via macros, add-ins, stand-alone applications. But it can also be automated via scripts.


The following article: Scripts explains in details and provides examples of automation of SOLIDWORKS via different scripts: vbscript, PowerShell and even JavaScript so API can be called directly from the web browser.
