ExportToDWG2 Crashes solidworks

I don't know what I'm doing wrong in this macro, but it does export a dwg but also crashes solidworks.

I was trying to replicate a problem with a larger macro that needs to be run twice to export the flat pattern of sheetmetal (first exports a empty dwg and in the second run export the flatpattern)


'Option Explicit
Dim swApp                   As SldWorks.SldWorks
Dim swModel                 As SldWorks.ModelDoc2

Dim varAlignment As Variant
Dim dataAlignment(11) As Double

Sub main()

Set swApp = Application.SldWorks
'Set swApp = CreateObject("SldWorks.Application")
Set swModel = swApp.ActiveDoc

If swModel Is Nothing Then
    swApp.SendMsgToUser2 "A part needs to be open", swMbWarning, swMbOk
    Exit Sub
End If
dataAlignment(0) = 0#
dataAlignment(1) = 0#
dataAlignment(2) = 0#
dataAlignment(3) = 0#
dataAlignment(4) = 0#
dataAlignment(5) = 0#
dataAlignment(6) = 0#
dataAlignment(7) = 0#
dataAlignment(8) = 0#
dataAlignment(9) = 0#
dataAlignment(10) = 0#
dataAlignment(11) = 0#
varAlignment = dataAlignment
Dim shetoptions As Long
shetoptions = 1   'include flat-pattern geometry
Dim modelType As Long
modelType = swModel.GetType

If modelType = swconst.swDocPART Then
        Dim RootPath As String: RootPath = Left(swModel.GetPathName, InStrRev(swModel.GetPathName, "\"))
        Dim result As Boolean
        result = swModel.ExportToDWG2(RootPath & "FlatTest.dwg", swModel.GetPathName, 1, True, varAlignment, False, False, shetoptions, Nothing)
    swApp.SendMsgToUser2 "Is not a part file.", swMbWarning, swMbOk
End If
Exit Sub
End Sub


Thanks in advance!
