Solidworks Automation help

Hello all,


I am actually very new to this with no prior knowledge or experience. I am writing a software in python. The software gives out certain dimensions, say the diameter and length of a shaft. I want to link my software to solidworks in such a way that it reads these dimensions from my software and makes a 3D drawing of the shaft automatically.

One person told me is that i need to write a script. I also read online that macros can do similar stuff.

So now, are the scripts the best way to do this? Is it compatible with Python? Are there any resources or tutorials that you might wanna recommend me?


So please if you have any tip, suggestion or help it'd be rally appreciated. 


Regards and thanks,
