Insert Explode Line Sketch and Jog Line Example (C#)

This example shows how to insert a jog line in an explode line sketch, a type of 3D sketch.

 

// -------------------------------------------------------------------------

// Preconditions: Open

//  <SolidWorks_install_dir>\samples\tutorial\cosmosfloxpress\ball valve\ball_valve.sldasm

//

// Postconditions:

//   (1) An exploded view of the assembly is created.

//   (2) A jog line, which is a type of explode line, is added.

//   (3) 3DExplode1, the explode line sketch, is located on the

//       ConfigurationManager tab. Click the ConfigurationManager

//       tab and expand default and ExplView1.

//

// NOTE: Because this assembly is used in a SolidWorks

//       online tutorial, do not save any changes when

//       you close the document.
