Create Machining Costing Analysis Example (C#)

This example shows how to create a machining Costing analysis.

//-----------------------------------------------
// Preconditions:
// 1. Open:
//    C:\Program Files\SolidWorks Corp\SolidWorks\samples\tutorial\costing\machined_part.sldprt
// 2. Verify that the Costing templates exist by clicking Tools > Options >
//    System Options > File Locations and select Costing templates in
//    Show folders for in SOLIDWORKS. Click Cancel to close the dialog.

// 3. Add a reference to SolidWorks.Interop.sldcostingapi.dll.
// 4. Open the Immediate window.
// 5. Run the macro.

//
// Postconditions:
// 1. Machining Costing analysis is created, which
//    might take one or more minutes to complete.

// 2. Examine the Immediate window.
//
// NOTE: Because the part is used elsewhere, do not

// save any changes when closing it.
