i wanted to make threads on a pipe..
i created a helix and then a profile, which i cut sweeped..
now, what i want to do is make macro so as to change helix features
(pitch and height) .. can u help me by guiding me what function etc is
to be used?
thanks in advance
First record a macro while it is recording simply select your helix
feature. This will give you a call in the macro for selecting the
Dim swApp as sldworks.sldworks
Dim part as sldworks.modeldoc2
dim SelMan as sldworks.selectionmanager
Sub Main ()
set swapp =3D new application.sldworks
Set part =3D swapp.activedoc
Set SelMan =3D part.selectionmanager
Dim HelixFeat as feature
set HelixFeat =3D SelMan.Getselectedobject6(1,-1)
Dim hFeatData as HelixFeatureData
Set hFeatureData =3D HelixFeat.GetDefinition
hFeatureData.Height =3D .1 'Value passed in meters
Ofcourse you will have to do appropriate error checking and such.
