    XML Import

    Sami Kyllonen

      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
