Get DimXpert Tolerance8 Example (VB.NET)

This example builds a part to demonstrate usage of the SolidWorks Document Manager API for the following DimXpert annotations:

    *  Circular runout geometric tolerance

    *  Total runout geometric tolerance

    *  Angularity geometric tolerance

    *  Parallelism geometric tolerance

'-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

' 1. Open:

'    <SolidWorks_install_dir>\samples\tutorial\api\cover_datum.sldprt

' 2. Click Datum on the DimXpert tool bar and place

'    Datum A inside the hole.

' 3. Create the circular runout geometric tolerance:

'    a. Click Geometric Tolerance on the DimXpert toolbar.

'       In the Geometric Tolerance Properties dialog:

'           i. Select Circular Runout from the Symbol dropdown

'              list in the first row.

'          ii. In the Primary field, type A.

'         iii. Click the outer cylinder of the part and click

'              again outside the part to place

'              the annotation.

'          iv. Click OK to close the Geometric Tolerance

'              Properties dialog.

'    b. Observe CircularRunout1 under Cylinder1 in the

'       DimXpert tree.

' 4. Create the total runout geometric tolerance:

'    a. Click Geometric Tolerance on the DimXpert toolbar.

'       In the Geometric Tolerance Properties dialog:

'           i. Select Total Runout from the Symbol dropdown

'              list in the first row.

'          ii. In the Primary field, type A.

'         iii. Click the boss of the part and click again

'              outside the part to place

'              the annotation.

'          iv. Click OK to close the Geometric Tolerance

'              Properties dialog.

'    b. Observe TotalRunout1 under Boss1 in the DimXpert

'       tree.

' 5. Create the angularity geometric tolerance:

'    a. Click Geometric Tolerance on the DimXpert toolbar.

'        n the Geometric Tolerance Properties dialog:

'           i. Select Angularity from the Symbol dropdown

'              in the first row.

'          ii. In the Primary field, type A.

'         iii. Click a face of the notch and click again

'              outside the part to place the annotation.

'          iv. Click OK to close the Geometric Tolerance

'              Properties dialog.

'    b. Observe Angularity1 under Notch1 in the DimXpert

'       tree.

' 6. Create the parallelism geometric tolerance:

'    a. Click Geometric Tolerance on the DimXpert toolbar.

'       In the Geometric Tolerance Properties dialog:

'           i. Select Parallel from the Symbol dropdown

'              in the first row.

'          ii. In the Primary field, type A.

'         iii. Click the boss of the part and click again

'              outside the part to place the annotation.

'          iv. Click to close the Geometric Tolerance

'              Properties dialog.

'    b. Observe Parallelism1 under Boss1 in the DimXpert tree.

' 7. Close the part, saving it to another name.

'     NOTE: Because this part is used in a SolidWorks online

'           tutorial, do not save any changes to the original

'           file name.

' 8. Read how to load and run Code_Example_VBNET with this part.
