XML Import

Question asked by Sami Kyllonen on May 13, 2011

I'm interested in importing XML (or similar) format in SolidWorks. Basically, the XML would contain the identification information about the 3D (or 2D) model/models and location and rotation of the models. The structure would be something like this (simplified):

 

<MODEL>

  <ID>DEVICE1_MODEL</ID>

  <PATH>C:/....</PATH>

  <X>100</X>

  <Y>200</Y>

  <ROTATION>180</ROTATION>

</MODEL>

<MODEL>

  <ID>DEVICE2_MODEL</ID>

  <PATH>C:/....</PATH>

  <X>200</X>

  <Y>230</Y>

  <ROTATION>0</ROTATION>

</MODEL>

 

Then SolidWorks would import the device models from the given location (or it's own location)

 

My question might seem stupid, that is just because I have never used it before and I don't know it's capabilities

 

Is this something that can be done anly through API?

 

BR, Sami
