Access to 'Features' in Display List and API

Question asked by Bilal Junaid on Dec 9, 2010

Hello everyone,

 

Is there any way to access the faces that belong to a Feature in the Display List code and the API. I am currently working with Display List, and I see that there is only support for Assembly, Parts, Bodies, and Faces. The reason I need access to 'Features' is in order to be able to compute the bounding box for a Feature. I need this bounding box in order to be able to properly compute the u/v scales and offsets for texture projections that are applied at the Feature level in SolidWorks. I do not see anything in Display List or Automation which provides distinction for Features in the heirarchy, and gives access to its geometrical data.

 

Any information would be appreciated.

 

Thanks.
