Beginning SolidEdge programming...

After some research this website seems to be "the reference" for SolidEdge programming so i tought why not post to get advices from pros.

I really don't know Solid-Edge well but many users in the company use it everyday (mostly for technical drawings for equipements we design and make) but got skills and a couple years experience with vb, .net and a couple other languages. Their main request seems pretty simple: adding a couple buttons (or macros) for simple tasks (an exemple would be quick saving as pdf.)

I tried to find a tutorial or some information on where to get started (I haven't really looking in solidEdge itself as we have a limited number of licences and they are in use most of the time) but I could really find anything usefull.

Anyone got some references / source code / info i could base my work on?

Welcome to the forums Robert!


You can use your WebKey to login to and download This is the latest (unfortunately) programming guide that Solid Edge has released.


You can also check out the C:\Program Files\Solid Edge VXX\SDK and C:\Program Files\Solid Edge VXX\Custom folders for additional documentation and examples.


I would also recommend that you look at my Downloads page. There I have uploaded that past 3 years of Solid Edge developers conferences that I have spoken at.


Give that stuff a try and post back if you need anything else.
