Learn SolidWorks API while you Watch!

Macros are small programs in SolidWorks which allows to do lot of repeated or complex stuff in very short time. In other words you can take a coffee break while that tiny Macro is working for you and you get the salary for that work. Looks interesting, then read on..

Pre-requisites to learn SolidWorks API

Just a combo of SolidWorks and a Programming language (VB, VB.NET, C#, and C++) can make you API master. I prefer VB not because I feel it is more simple but I can understand a bit of it.

Recently I flipped over CADSharp and found a massive Video library teaching how to play with SolidWorks macro along with huge Macro library with many free examples.

Time to Study and Learn with SolidWorks

I’ve been quite a busy these days after I’ve returned from SolidWorks World 2012 in San Diego. I’ve been working on many things and don’t get much time to write. And to add to this I’ll be busy for next few weeks. This would not be only because of my ongoing projects but also something different, I’m getting back to my school days.

I’m not going to join any school though but will be doing a self learning. I’ll be doing my favorite stuffs in SolidWorks which are Rendering, Animation and API. I’ll be studying and learning via following books in next couple of weeks.
