faces and edges of each rectangle of my solid edge piece

 

Hi this is my first post in the community , just wondering if anyone could help , i'mkind of a newbie in vb & solidedge programing , just started aa new macro to bend all of my pieces and create a new file in .jax format , i need an specific format for it to be recognised by pnbend program therefore y need to know how many faces and edges are in my piece in solid edge

for example:

[PART]

NAME=TEST1

THICKNESS=1.5

MATERIAL=Zintec

SHEETS=1,2,3

BENDS=4,5

as you can see here

[SHEET]

ID=1

ORIGIN=0,0,0

X-VECTOR=1,0,0

Y-VECTOR=0,1,0

Z-VECTOR=0,0,1

OUTER PROFILE ID=6

[PROFILE]

ID=6

SEGMENT IDS=11,12,13,14

[LINE SEGMENT]

ID=11

START COORD=0.0,0.0

END COORD=0.0,300.0

 

lets say i just want to make a group of faces , if there are trhee rectangles in a piece i want to know there are three rectangles composing my solid edge piece and be able to know which points correspond to which rectangle

if anyone could  help it would definitly be very nice
