Dim swApp As Object

    Dim swModel As SldWorks.ModelDoc2

    Dim swSelMgr As SldWorks.SelectionMgr

    Dim edgep As SldWorks.EdgePoint

    Dim swSelObj As Object

    Dim SelType As Long

    Dim SelCount As Long


    Set swApp = GetObject(, "SldWorks.Application")

    Set swModel = swApp.ActiveDoc

    Set swSelMgr = swModel.SelectionManager

    SelCount = swSelMgr.GetSelectedObjectCount


    For i = 1 To SelCount

        SelType = swSelMgr.GetSelectedObjectType(i)

        Debug.Print SelType

        If SwConst.swSelectType_e.swSelPOINTREFS = SelType Then

            Set swSelObj = swSelMgr.GetSelectedObject5(i)

            Set edgep = swSelObj

        End If

    Next i
