What API methods should I use to set the material of a part, such that the costing API can use this material to generate its analysis?
Here's what I'm currently doing:
First, set the material of the body/bodies like this:
body.SetMaterialProperty("Default", "solidworks materials.sldmat", materialName);
Later, having created the CostAnalysis, get the CostAnalysisMachining for each costing body like this:
CostAnalysis bodyCostAnalysis = (CostAnalysis)costBody.CreateCostAnalysis("--path to machining template--");
CostAnalysisMachining costMachining = (CostAnalysisMachining)bodyCostAnalysis.GetSpecificAnalysis();
Now, get the material name:
string costingMaterialName = costMachining.CurrentMaterial
Question: Why isn't costingMaterialName equal to materialName?
Thanks for any help!
