I have a process where I would like to retrieve some of the physical properties of a model.
I can read these using the API with the model open in SE, but would like to be able to read them without first opening the model into CAD. (In a similar way to reading properties using the file properties api)
Specifically, I would be looking to read the units of measure, mass, volume, density, surface area and material.
Solved! Go to Solution.
i see no way to get to those information without the use of the Solid Edge API.
But by creating and using an Add-In you could achieve to write a copy of all those values needed into user defined properties whenever a Solid Edge file gets saved.
Thanks for the reply - I assumed it would not be possible, just wanted to confirm I wasn't just missing something!
Your suggestion on generating and storing the information on save was also the only other method I had considered to find that information. I'll be doing it that way, then!
