which APIs can be used to make animation in SolidWorks secondary development? And how?
1. Use the IMotionStudyManager APIs.
2. I'm not totally sure what you mean by "how?" If you mean, "How do I learn to use the IMotionStudyManager APIs?" then here is my answer:
I would recommend that you learn VBA if you don't already know it. Then create a VBA macro. You will also need to know how to use the SolidWorks API Help and understand the SolidWorks API object model. Please check out this blog post: 7 Mistakes New SolidWorks API Programmers Make
Once you have a grasp of VBA and the SolidWorks API, you can check out the examples at the IMotionStudyManager API Help page.
SolidWorks API Training
Thank you very much for your advise! Recently I am doing a project about robot animation using C++ integrated in SolidWorks,and I wonder whether there some APIs useful to program it?
I am not familiar with your project so you will have to elaborate on what you mean by "it".
If I answered your original question, could you please mark my answer above as correct? Thanks.
I want to make a SolidWorks' Add-in which can move a robot automatically in SolidWorks. Is there any methods can do in SolidWorks using API in C++?
I have never done anything like this but I imagine you would need to use transforms. See IMathTransform interface.
