SaveAs3 crashes Solidworks 2013

Hi,

 

Please take a look at the following snippet (C# API for SolidWorks 2013):

 

fullName = currSW3D.GetPathName();

fullName=fullName.Substring(0,fullName.Length-6);

MessageBox.Show ( "Current 3D object identified as: " + currSW3D.GetTitle () );

currExtension=currSW3D.Extension;

warns = currSW3D.GetType();

errs=currSW3D.SaveAs3(fullName+"STEP",0,0);

 

The Current model is correctly identified by its name and its type is a part. The messagebox correctly states the name of the model without the extension and the model type is correctly identified as a part. Nonetheless, when the program reaches the SaveAs3 command, Solidworks get completely stuck and I have to stop it through the Task Manager.

Interestingly, the STEP file is successfully created, but the program hangs.

What am I doing wrong?

 

Thank you
