Automate SOLIDWORKS with the API
The SOLIDWORKS Application Programming Interface (API) is a COM programming interface to the SOLIDWORKS software. The API contains hundreds of functions that you can call from Visual Basic (VB), Visual Basic for Applications (VBA), VB.Net, C++, C#, or SOLIDWORKS macro files. These functions provide the programmer with direct access to the SOLIDWORKS functionality and means that you can automate SOLIDWORKS to carry out your company’s specific functions or tasks.
