Write Parasolid Partition Stream to File Example (C++)

This example shows how to write a Parasolid partition stream to a file using the SolidWorks Document Manager API.


#import 'C:\Program Files\Common Files\SolidWorks Shared\swdocumentmgr.dll'  raw_interfaces_only, raw_native_types, no_namespace, named_guids //Change as necessary


wchar_t* filename = "87-part.sldprt"

wchar_t* outputDir = "c:\\caddocs\\";


ISwDMClassFactoryPtr swClassFact;


 __uuidof(SwDMClassFactory) );

 if (!(ISwDMClassFactory*)swClassFact)

 return 0;


 ISwDMApplicationPtr swDocMgr(

 swClassFact->GetApplication("your_license_key") ); //Specify your license key

 if (!(ISwDMApplication*)swDocMgr)

 return 0;


 SwDmDocumentOpenError error;

 ISwDMDocumentPtr swDoc( swDocMgr->GetDocument(

 filename, swDmDocumentPart, TRUE, &error ) );

 if (!(ISwDMDocument*)swDoc)

 return 0;


 ISwDMConfigurationMgrPtr swCfgMgr(

 swDoc->ConfigurationManager );

 if (!(ISwDMConfigurationMgr*)swCfgMgr)

 return 0;


 _variant_t names( swCfgMgr->GetConfigurationNames() );

 SAFEARRAY* nameArray = names.parray;

 for (int i=0; i<nameArray->rgsabound[0].cElements; ++i)


 _bstr_t str( ((BSTR*)(nameArray->pvData))[i] );


 ISwDMConfigurationPtr swCfg(

 swCfgMgr->GetConfigurationByName(str) );

 ISwDMConfiguration2* pswCfg2;

 if (swCfg)

swCfg->QueryInterface( __uuidof(ISwDMConfiguration2), (void **)&pswCfg2 );


return 0;



 CString dir( outputDir );

 dir += "\\";

 dir += str;

 dir += ".xmp_bin";

 pswCfg2->GetPartitionStream( (LPCTSTR)dir );
