I am using excel to drive my model which works great until I open the draft for the detailed view.
Is there a way to control the scales and also update the views?
Thanks for your quick reply.
As mentioned I drive a model using excel and I want to use it as a template for the same style part but varying sizes.
I also want to use the draft as a template too, that way I don't need to create new detailed drawings everytime.
The problem I am having is the scale on my draft, it can either be too large or too small.
Is there a way of controlling this?
maybe You will think about QuickDraftSheet templates to use but You alos will run into a scaling problem if the size of Your parts is to different.
I thinkt that if YOu enter the view properties of every draft view, there will be an "Scale" property to change via API
But maybe Your qustion will be better positioned inside the ProgrammersForum rather than here in the Global Solid Edge Forum
There are more and better API programmers online to answer Your questions.
yes obviously you can do that...
first of all you have to grasp some knowledge of programming of solid edge.
there are many examples are given in solid edge programming help.
you have to write small micros for your specific requirement.
i will help you to programming the micros for your specific requirement.
i will upload snap shots within 2-3 days for your reference.
find the attachment for your reference..
Note that when you run the Micro, Draft file must be open in solid edge as activate windows.
wish this will help you..
Thanks for this information.
I have written the macro as you have shown.
I do not have "Tools>References". Is this only available with the premium license? I am using classic.
Thanks for the info.
My scale doesn't seem to be working.
What am I doing wrong? Please find image attached of the data I have input.
When I saved the spreadsheet after I input the data in VBA, I had to resave it as a macro-enabled sheet, then I had to re link my cells.
