Is your drawing contained in the same file as the model? Or have you added the model as a component of the drawing file (master model method)?


If you are using the master model method, you will need to take care to reference the correct part file. The code is looking at the features in the "workPart"; if the "workPart" variable references the drawing file, the point set will not be found. Instead of looking at the work part, make sure you are referencing the model part.

thank you very much !!!


yes i have separate drawing and i make :


Dim s As Session = Session.GetSession()

Dim workPart As Part = s.Parts.Work


but when i do that the workpart is the drawing and not the part of course!!!


how can i find the list of part attached to the drawing ?
