Macro to Cut and Measure Cross-Sectional Area

Question asked by Andy Norris on Aug 22, 2013

Hello!

 

I would like to make a macro that will make incremental cuts along the C-axis of a revolved body, then measures the surface area after each incremental cut is made, then exports each measurement as well as the distance along the C-axis into excel.  For a better mental image, imagine sushi.  It's rolled up then incrementally cut as you move along the C-axis, and I would like to know the surface at each cut normal to the axis.  I have a macro that can read x/y data of sketchpoints within a specified sketch, however I don't think I have the skills to modify this to accomplish what I'm trying to do.  Any help would be greatly appreciated!

 

Thanks
