Is there a way to find the total surface area on a plane? I got this from (below) - don't know where. It finds the largest surface of a part. Of course, it isn't necessarily planar surface. Is there a way to specifically look at surfaces that are co-planar with a named plane and add the results?
I have a plane named "MyPlane".
I know there are any number co-planar surfaces (always has at least one).
Is there a way to only find the largest surface on this plane?
'finds the face with the most surface area
'the face may not be planar
Dim swApp As SldWorks.SldWorks
Dim swModel As SldWorks.ModelDoc2
Dim swPart As SldWorks.PartDoc
Dim vBodies As Variant
Dim swBody As SldWorks.Body2
Dim swFace As SldWorks.Face2
Set swApp = Application.SldWorks
Set swModel = swApp.ActiveDoc
Set swPart = swModel
vBodies = swPart.GetBodies2(swBodyType_e.swSolidBody, False)
Set swBody = vBodies(0)
Set swFace = swBody.GetFirstFace
Dim Area As Double
While Not swFace Is Nothing
If swFace.GetArea > Area Then
swFace.Select2 False, -1
Area = swFace.GetArea
Set swFace = swFace.GetNextFace
