Get Maximum Edge and Vertex Gaps Example (C#)

// This macro returns the same data returned by the Tools > Check dialog box

// when the checkboxes, Maximum edge gap and Maximum vertex gap, are selected.

//

// This macro uses IEdge::IsTolerant to determine whether common edges are within tolerance of one another.

// This macro uses IVertex::IsTolerant to determine whether common vertexes are within tolerance of one another.

//

// This macro iterates over each edge and vertex in a part and reports the following:

//

// * whether the edge or vertex is:

//     a. tolerant (distance to neighbor is greater than 5.0E-9 mm)

//     b. exact (distance to neighbor is less than or equal to 5.0E-9 mm)

// * gap size (or tolerance) in mm of each edge or vertex

// * maximum edge gap (or tolerance) in mm for the part

// * maximum vertex gap (or tolerance) in mm for the part

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

//    1. Open a part that contains gaps between common edges and/or vertexes

//       (e.g., <install_dir>\samples\tutorial\assemblymates\head.sldprt).

//    2. Open an immediate window to view runtime messages.

//    3. Run this macro.

//    4. Move cursor across the part in the SolidWorks window. The tolerant edges and vertexes are selected in each body of the part,

//       and tolerance data for all edges and vertexes is printed in the immediate window.
