Get and Set Constraint for Dome Feature Example (VBA)

This example shows how to get and set a constraining point for a dome feature. A part containing a dome feature constrained by a sketch point on the origin is open.



Option Explicit


Dim swApp As SldWorks.SldWorks

Dim Part As SldWorks.PartDoc

Dim component As SldWorks.Component2

Dim newPointFeat As SldWorks.SketchPoint

Dim dome As SldWorks.feature

Dim domeConstraintPoint As SldWorks.SketchPoint

Dim dome_featData As SldWorks.DomeFeatureData2

Dim boolstatus As Variant

Sub main()


    Set swApp = Application.SldWorks

    Set Part = swApp.ActiveDoc

    boolstatus = Part.Extension.SelectByID2("Point1@Sketch1", "EXTSKETCHPOINT", 0, 0, 0, False, 0, Nothing, swSelectOptionDefault)

    Set newPointFeat = Part.SelectionManager.GetSelectedObject5(1)


    Set dome = Part.FeatureByName("Dome1")

    Set dome_featData = dome.GetDefinition

    boolstatus = dome_featData.AccessSelections(Part, component)

    Set domeConstraintPoint = dome_featData.ConstraintPointOrSketch


    If Not domeConstraintPoint Is Nothing Then


        dome_featData.ConstraintPointOrSketch = newPointFeat


        boolstatus = dome.ModifyDefinition(dome_featData, Part, Nothing)


    End If





End Sub
