Remove Textures from Assembly Components Example (VBA)

This example shows how to remove all textures from all components in an assembly.

 

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

'

' Preconditions: An assembly document is open and at least one component

'                had a texture applied to it at the component level.

 

' Postconditions: All textures applied to components are removed.

'

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

Option Explicit

 

Dim swApp As SldWorks.SldWorks

Dim Part As SldWorks.ModelDoc2

Dim SelMgr As SldWorks.SelectionMgr

Dim boolstatus As Boolean

 

Function RemoveTexture(swDoc As SldWorks.ModelDoc2, configName As String) As Boolean

    Dim swDocExt As SldWorks.ModelDocExtension

    Dim swTexture As SldWorks.Texture

    

    Set swDocExt = swDoc.Extension

    Set swTexture = swDocExt.GetTexture(configName)

    If Not swTexture Is Nothing Then

        Debug.Print "", "Texture removed: ", swTexture.MaterialName

        RemoveTexture = swDocExt.RemoveTexture2(configName)

        swDoc.SetSaveFlag

    End If

End Function

 

Function TraverseComponents(parentComp As SldWorks.Component2)

    Dim vChildComponents As Variant

    Dim vObj As Variant

    Dim childComp As SldWorks.Component2

    Dim childDoc As SldWorks.ModelDoc2

    Dim childConfigName As String

    

    vChildComponents = parentComp.GetChildren

    For Each vObj In vChildComponents

        Set childComp = vObj

     

        Set childDoc = childComp.GetModelDoc

        childConfigName = childComp.ReferencedConfiguration

        Debug.Print childComp.Name2, childConfigName

        

        boolstatus = RemoveTexture(childDoc, childConfigName)
