Finding Welds

 

I have an open Solid Edge Assemby on my machine.  I need to find all the welds in the assembly and either hide or delete them and have absolutely no idea where to start.  Has anybody ever tackled something like this in the past.  From what I understand I have to search for all Filets, Protrusions etc. but have never done this before.  I need to automate this procedure.

 

I'm using SE20 and can either use VB6 or .Net.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

RE: Finding Welds

OK I found most of what I need. However I still can't delete protrusions as it is not exposed as automation.

Anyone have any ideas as a work around?

 

Here is what I have for deleting Fillet Welds, Grove Welds and Swept Protrusions.

 

****************

For x = 1 To Doc.AssemblyFeatures.FilletWelds.Count

Doc.AssemblyFeatures.FilletWelds.Item(x).Delete

Next

For x = 1 To Doc.AssemblyFeatures.GrooveWelds.Count

Doc.AssemblyFeatures.GrooveWelds.Item(x).Delete

Next

For x = 1 To Doc.AssemblyFeatures.AssemblyFeaturesSweptProtrusions.Count

Doc.AssemblyFeatures.AssemblyFeaturesSweptProtrusions.Item(x).Delete

Next
