Get Radius of Variable Radius Fillet Example (VBA)

This example shows how to get the radius of a variable radius fillet.




' Preconditions:

'          (1) Model document is open.

'          (2) Model contains a VarFillet2 feature.


' Postconditions: None



Option Explicit


Dim swApp As SldWorks.SldWorks

Dim swModelDoc As SldWorks.ModelDoc2

Dim swModelDocExt As SldWorks.ModelDocExtension

Dim swSelMgr As SldWorks.SelectionMgr

Dim boolstatus As Boolean

Dim swFeat As SldWorks.Feature

Dim swFeatData As SldWorks.VariableFilletFeatureData2

Dim swEdge As SldWorks.Edge

Dim Vert1 As SldWorks.Vertex

Dim Vert2 As SldWorks.Vertex

Dim radius1 As Double

Dim radius2 As Double


Sub main()

Set swApp = Application.SldWorks

Set swModelDoc = swApp.ActiveDoc

Set swModelDocExt = swModelDoc.Extension

Set swSelMgr = swModelDoc.SelectionManager


boolstatus = swModelDocExt.SelectByID("VarFillet2", "BODYFEATURE", 0, 0, 0, False, 0, Nothing)

Set swFeat = swSelMgr.GetSelectedObject5(1): Debug.Assert Not swFeat Is Nothing

Set swFeatData = swFeat.GetDefinition()


boolstatus = swFeatData.AccessSelections(swModelDoc, Nothing): Debug.Assert boolstatus

Set swEdge = swFeatData.GetFilletEdgeAtIndex(0)

Set Vert1 = swEdge.GetStartVertex(): Debug.Assert Not Vert1 Is Nothing

radius1 = swFeatData.GetRadius2(Vert1, boolstatus)

Set Vert2 = swEdge.GetEndVertex(): Debug.Assert Not Vert2 Is Nothing

radius2 = swFeatData.GetRadius2(Vert2, boolstatus)

Debug.Print "Radius1 = " & radius1 * 1000# & " mm"

Debug.Print "Radius2 = " & radius2 * 1000# & " mm"
