You can create a new macro from the Macro toolbar or the Tools menu and then program the macro in a macro editing application.
Creating a new macro is different from recording a macro. When you create a new macro, you program the macro directly from a macro editing application such as Microsoft Visual Basic. When you record a macro, you create the macro from within the SolidWorks software.
To create a new macro:
- Click New Macro (Macro toolbar), or click .
- Type a file name.
- Click Save.
Your macro editing application opens ready for you to program the new macro.
