Re: Solidworks macro to export to Simplify3D

What's the chance you can advise on adjusting the macro to locate the STL in the native folder of the part you're exporting? For example. I have a project folder and within that I have Folders for IGS, PDFs, DXFs, and STLs. I'd like it to recall the folder of the SW file and then save it to it's re...

Re: Solidworks macro to export to Simplify3D

I would try and start fresh like gearsawe suggested. I don't know why you'd get that error, there's no switch statement. The only thing I could think of is maybe it got added to an existing macro or some code or text got added to it by mistake.

This?

Code: Select all

Dim swApp As SldWorks.SldWorks
Is there an error message you can post?

That first line should be the same whether it's SW 2010 or the latest version.

Re: Send GCode Directly to OctoPrint

Ill would also like this feature to be added please. My printer is located in my cellar. Just pressing ->print would be very cool instead of running 3 floors downstairs and upstairs after that. This is easy. Connect to the Raspberry Pi that's running OctoPrint. If you're using a keyboard and monito...

Re: Solidworks macro to export to Simplify3D

If you select your body and execute the macro it will automatically export an STL file and open it in Simplify3D with one click, instead of having to do all that one-by-one. Just go to Tools->Macros->New then paste the above code over the code that Solidworks generates. Then save it. You could then ...

Solidworks macro to export to Simplify3D

I couldn't find a macro to do this so I made one. Set your paths (see comments in code). Dim swApp As SldWorks.SldWorks Dim Part As ModelDoc2 Dim result As Long Sub main() Dim Path As String ' SET YOUR STL OUTPUT PATH Path = "C:\Stuff\Files\3D printing\STL\" Set swApp = Application.SldWorks Set Part...

Resetting the theme to Default did the trick. Thanks!
