Bend line names

Question asked by Maynard Viersen on Sep 18, 2014

SolidWorks has decided that they can have different numbers for the names of the bend lines from the flat Pattern.

e.g. Flat-Pattern1 used to have bend lines named Bend-Lines1, now the bend lines can be named Bend-Lines2 or any other number.


What is the easiest way to get the name of the bend lines in a flat pattern view.

Before I can work on the bend lines I need to be sure that the bend lines are not hidden.

Since we only have one flat pattern, The bend line name was always Bend-Lines1 however, now the bend lines could have any number behind "Bend-Lines".



//string sViewname = swView.GetName2();


string sFullModelName = swView.GetReferencedModelName();

string[] sSplitFullModelName = sFullModelName.Split('\\');

string[] sSplitModelName = sSplitFullModelName[sSplitFullModelName.Length - 1].Split('.');

string sModelName = sSplitModelName[0];

string sBBName = "Bend-Lines1@" + sModelName + "@" + ViewName;


bool iboolstatus = swModel.Extension.SelectByID2(sBBName,

"SKETCH", 0, 0, 0, false, 0, null, 0);
