Solid Edge Macro recording to know relevant API

Pioneer

Hi, I'm new to Solid Edge API, and many times I can't find the relevant API method.

In SolidWorks, I can record a macro and get relevant method quickly.

Is there a similar facility in Solid Edge ?

Please guide. Thanks.

Hi,

Solid Edge has no macro record function and no VBA implementation. You've to use COM automation to access the Solid Edge API.

Solid Edge help side bar contains a link to the API help:
https://docs.plm.automation.siemens.com/docs/se/2019/api/webframe.html

There you can find a first orientation and description of the Solid Edge API and its object hierarchy.

Spy for Solid Edge from Jason Newell is a great tool for learning the API  there is a link to it from the Useful Solid Edge Developer Community Links page.
