Hi, i know this is a general question but it's a while i ask that myself. I read that SolidWorks API is COM based so every Add-In written in .NET is actually exposed through COM interfaces. I am curious to know what are the main blocks of SolidWorks, and which programming languages are used to program it...

I ask myself if it will be ever possible to have a native integration of .NET Add-Ins that i guess it implies to have the whole Solidworks to be programmed over the .NET platform, that might be counter productive from the point of view of performance. I don't know...if anybody wish to share some knowledge...i'll be happy to read.

 

Thanks
