Option Explicit

Sub main()

    Dim swApp                   As SldWorks.SldWorks

    Dim swModel                 As SldWorks.ModelDoc2

    Dim swSelMgr                As SldWorks.SelectionMgr

    Dim swFace                  As SldWorks.face2

    Dim swLoop                  As SldWorks.Loop2


    Set swApp = CreateObject("SldWorks.Application")

    Set swModel = swApp.ActiveDoc

    Set swSelMgr = swModel.SelectionManager

    Set swFace = swSelMgr.GetSelectedObject5(1)

    Set swLoop = swFace.GetFirstLoop


    Debug.Print "LoopCount = " & swFace.GetLoopCount


    While Not swLoop Is Nothing

        Debug.Print "  IsOuter      = " & swLoop.IsOuter

        Debug.Print "  IsSingular   = " & swLoop.IsSingular

        Debug.Print "  EdgeCount    = " & swLoop.GetEdgeCount

        Debug.Print "  VertexCount  = " & swLoop.GetVertexCount

        Debug.Print ""


        Set swLoop = swLoop.GetNext


End Sub
