sheet metal flange macro

Question asked by Marshall Wilson on Jan 24, 2015

Hi. I'm trying to learn the API by looking at the examples in the Help Documentation (and using a book which is of limited usefulness) . I'm doing it to help automate a large repetitive job that is just beginning. To try to learn some Sheet Metal commands, I've been playing a bit with an edge flange example from the help files.


The API example code (API_SM.swp) works fine, but when I make some minor changes to the sketch profile(MOD_SM.swp), it stops creating the edge flange profile. It seems to create it but then it disappears quickly. The sketch is still there though.


I've changed some stuff - bend angle, the reverse direction option in the ModelDoc2 command, but still same problem.


Anyway, I thought I might be able to use this example as a jumping off point to writing some of my own stuff, but this issue has stymied me...
