Duplicating assembly


Hi all

Does any one know how to duplicate an assembly using the API?

I know how to do it in the GUI, but I want to write a program that's duplicate the assembly and all its part to a different directory while maintaining part relations.

Hope you understand what I mean Smiley Happy

RE: Duplicating assembly

Dear Yovav,


Actually you want to copy an Assembly from one place to another place, if i am correct then use Revision Manager.


Create an object for Revision Manager and documents in revision manager.


using copy option you can complete this task.


Provide source and destination path for each documents in source assembly also you can rename the assembly and parts after that use update in revision manager.


You can find sample code in SolidEdge SDK for the same.


Hope this will solve your problem


All the best

RE: Duplicating assembly

Thanks Sandeep,

I am familiar with the revision manager, but is there an API command set so I can use the revision manager as a part of another program?

Assuming I have a copy of solid edge on my computer, is it possible to write an independent program that will do what the revision manager does?

The motivation is for writing a program with the revision manager is one function of many
