    Beam tracing within a model

    Qun Han Chen

      Hi all,


      I am working on the project to visualize beam paths inside a model. To do this, I will require:


      1) To obtain a cross section of the model at a given location

      2) From the cross section, obtain the set of points/ characterize the set of points into an equation, so that I can solve for intersections and visualize the beam reflection paths

      3) I am developing a GUI using c# .NET Winforms, so I will need a way to use an existing API to call Solidworks programmatically from c#


      I understand that 1) probably could be done, but unfortunately I have no idea at all regarding the functionality of Solidworks.


      Could anyone enlighten me on if this is possible under the current Solidworks framework?


      Thanks a lot!
