How to create family of parts programmatically??



I need to create family of parts in existing part document. Does somebody know how to do it programmaticaly? And how to add variable that will have different value in different family members?


Or, maybe, somebody know how to combine two part document in one family?


I would appreciate any information!

Re: How to create family of parts programmatically??

I think what you're looking for would be PartDocument.FamilyMembers.Add() and PartDocument.FamilyMembers.AddFamilyVariable(), but I've never tried either of those. I'd start by setting up a family the way I wanted it interactively, then writing a test program to iterate over the Items in the FamilyMembers collection and look at the properties in the debugger (or use SE Spy).


Hope that helps.
