New Macro

You can create a new macro from the Macro toolbar or the Tools menu and then program the macro in a macro editing application.

Creating a new macro is different from recording a macro. When you create a new macro, you program the macro directly from a macro editing application such as Microsoft Visual Basic. When you record a macro, you create the macro from within the SOLIDWORKS software.

To create a new macro:

  1. Click New Macro Tool_New_Macro.gif (Macro toolbar), or click Tools > Macro > New.
  2. Type a file name.
  3. Click Save.
    Your macro editing application opens ready for you to program the new macro.
