Opening IGES files with a macro

Question asked by Toby Webbley on Nov 8, 2018

Hello,  I have recorded a macro that includes opening an IGES file with no issue during the recording. When I rerun the macro I get the error message "unable to read IGES file. File was truncated or contains invalid data" and doesn't get past the open command.

 

Has anyone had the same problem or know how to fix it?

 

Also, does anyone know where to start with writing a program that would open Solidworks and run a macro just by running the program? I've read that batch files can only open the program but not run any commands in the program.

 

Thanks in advance,

 

Toby.
