Option Explicit

Sub main()

    Dim swApp                   As SldWorks.SldWorks

    Dim swModel                 As SldWorks.ModelDoc2

    Dim swFeat                  As SldWorks.feature

    Dim swSubFeat               As SldWorks.feature

    Dim swDispDim               As SldWorks.DisplayDimension

    Dim swDim                   As SldWorks.Dimension

    Dim swAnn                   As SldWorks.Annotation

    

    Dim bRet                    As Boolean

    

    Set swApp = CreateObject("SldWorks.Application")

    Set swModel = swApp.ActiveDoc

    Set swFeat = swModel.FirstFeature

    

    Debug.Print "File = " & swModel.GetPathName

    

    Do While Not swFeat Is Nothing

        Debug.Print "  " + swFeat.Name

        

        Set swSubFeat = swFeat.GetFirstSubFeature

        Do While Not swSubFeat Is Nothing

            Debug.Print "      " + swSubFeat.Name

            

            Set swDispDim = swSubFeat.GetFirstDisplayDimension

            Do While Not swDispDim Is Nothing

                Set swAnn = swDispDim.GetAnnotation

                Set swDim = swDispDim.GetDimension

                

                Debug.Print "          [" & swDim.FullName & "] = " & swDim.GetSystemValue2("")

            

                Set swDispDim = swSubFeat.GetNextDisplayDimension(swDispDim)

            Loop

            Set swSubFeat = swSubFeat.GetNextSubFeature
