    Set Bend Allowance

    David Watkins

      I am trying to set the bend allowance from a user form. Everything seems to be working except the value of the bend allowance does not change. The return value of PBendData.BendAllowance before the change does match what it currently is and the return value of PBendData.BendAllowance after it is set = Langth.Value / 39.3700787 does match that value. Something seems to be wrong with "swSheetMetal.SetCustomBendAllowance PBendData" but I don’t know what. Anyone have any ideas?



      Dim swApp As SldWorks.SldWorks

      Dim swModel As SldWorks.ModelDoc2

      Dim swfeature As SldWorks.Feature

      Dim swSlectionManager As SldWorks.SelectionMgr

      Dim swSheetMetal As SldWorks.SheetMetalFeatureData

      Dim PBendData As SldWorks.CustomBendAllowance



      Set swApp = Application.SldWorks

      Set swModel = swApp.ActiveDoc

      swModel.Extension.SelectByID2 "Sheet-Metal(2)", "BODYFEATURE", 0, 0, 0, False, 0, Nothing, 0

      Set swSelectionManager = swModel.SelectionManager

      Set swfeature = swSelectionManager.GetSelectedObject6(1, -1)

      Set swSheetMetal = swfeature.GetDefinition


      Set PBendData = swSheetMetal.GetCustomBendAllowance

      PBendData.BendAllowance = Langth.Value / 39.3700787

      swSheetMetal.SetCustomBendAllowance PBendData

      swModel.ClearSelection2 True
