Iterate Through Dimensions in Model Example (VBA)

This example shows how to iterate through the features and dimensions in a part.

'--------------------------------------------------
' Preconditions:
' 1. Open install_dir\samples\tutorial\lesson2\tutor1.sldprt.
' 2. Open the Immediate window.
'
' Postconditions:
' 1. Iterates through the features and dimensions in the part.
' 2. Examine the Immediate window.
'
' NOTE: Because the part is used elsewhere, do not save changes.
