Hi, I am trying to get all the components (parts and assemblies) from the root assembly. I wan't the components to be in the order as they appear in the FeatureManager tree.

 

Using the API quide a wrote macro posted bellow. Problem is, that call to entity.GetComponent allways returns Nothing. Can please anyone help me with this?

 

Thank you

Lukas

 

 

Dim swApp As SldWorks.SldWorks

Dim swModel As SldWorks.ModelDoc2

Dim swFeat As SldWorks.Feature

Dim entity As entity

Dim component As Component2

 

   

Sub main()

   

    Set swApp = Application.SldWorks

    Set swModel = swApp.ActiveDoc

   

    Set swFeat = swModel.FirstFeature

   

    While Not swFeat Is Nothing

       

        Set entity = swFeat

       

        If entity.GetType = swSelectType_e.swSelCOMPONENTS Then

           

            Set component = entity.GetComponent

           

            MsgBox "Name: " & component.Name2

        

         End If

         Set swFeat = swFeat.GetNextFeature

    Wend

End Sub
