I am trying to get the result (x,y, and z coordinate) of vertical projection of two points on a knitted surface.
RayIntersections and GetRayIntersectionsPoints look promising but there no good documentation. Even on the solidworks api help website.
Attached the file I am working on and below is the script.
Could you please look at the script and tell me what is wrong with it and/or if you have a better aproche or a good documentation about how to get the coordinate of the vertical projection of the two points on the surface.

Set swSelMgr = swModel.SelectionManager
boolstatus = swModel.Extension.SelectByID2("surface", "REFSURFACE", 0, 0, 0, False, 0, Nothing, 0)
Set swBody(0) = swSelMgr.GetSelectedObject6(1, -1) ''
