How do I start using the Solidworks API?
Posted on 2008-10-27
I am not a programmer in anyway. However, I have been tasked with the project of using the Solidworks API to automate the quoting process here. What they want is to read the dimensional data from a simple object in Solidworks [physical, not related to programming] and the run it through an algorithm that spits out a $ value and prints it out all pretty.
1.) Where do I start? I.E can I use the VBA Editor in DWG component ... if so how the hell does that thing work?? ... Or should I use MS VB Express IDE...? By this question I mean, where/how do I bang out the code, compile (or interpret) to see some kind of result?
