Write Parasolid Partition Stream to File Example (C#)

This example shows how to write a Parasolid partition stream to a file for a part.

 
NOTE: To get the name of the stream and a preview bitmap of the sheet active when the drawing was last saved, use ISwDMDocument10::GetPreviewBitmap and ISwDMDocument10::PreviewStreamName. To get the name of the streams and the preview bitmaps for all sheets in a drawing, use ISwDMSheet2::GetPreviewPNGBitmap and ISwDMSheet2::PreviewPNGStreamName.

//--------------------------------------------------------------------------
// Preconditions: 
// 1. Read the SOLIDWORKS Document Manager API Getting Started 
//    topic and verify that the required DLLs have been registered.
// 2. Create a C# macro in SOLIDWORKS. 
// 3. Copy Main class into SolidWorksMacro.cs
//    a. Specify your_license_key.
//    b. Verify that the specified part exists. 
//    c. Add a reference to SolidWorks.Interop.swdocumentmgr.dll: 
//       1. Right-click the project in the Project Explorer. 
//       2. Click Add Reference
//       3. Click Browse
//       4. Click install_dir\api\redist\CLR2\SolidWorks.Interop.swdocumentmgr.dll.
//    d. Add references to System.Drawing and stdole.
// 3. Create a class and copy Class1 into Class1.cs.
// 4. Verify that c:\temp exists.
// 5. Open the Immediate Window.
// 
// Postconditions: 
// 1. Creates c:\temp\multi-inter.bmp and c:\temp\Default.xmp_bin.
// 2. Examine the c:\temp and the Immediate Window.
