Sample autodesk inventor VBA for assembly

Sample autodesk inventor VBA for assembly

Autodesk Inventor provides a VBA (Visual Basic for Applications) API that allows you to automate tasks in Inventor, including working with assemblies. With VBA, you can perform actions like creating, modifying, and analyzing assemblies and their components. Here's a basic example of VBA code for working with assemblies in Autodesk Inventor: Open Autodesk Inventor and create or open an assembly document. Go to the "Add-Ins" tab and ensure that the "VBA" add-in is loaded. Click on "VBA Editor" to open the VBA Integrated Development Environment (IDE). In the VBA IDE, you can create a new module by going to "Insert" > "Module." Now, you can start writing VBA code. Here's a simple example that demonstrates how to list the components in an assembly:

Sub ListAssemblyComponents()
 Dim oAssemblyDoc As AssemblyDocument
 Set oAssemblyDoc = ThisApplication.ActiveDocument

 If oAssemblyDoc.DocumentType = kAssemblyDocumentObject Then
 Dim oComponent As ComponentOccurrence

 For Each oComponent In oAssemblyDoc.ComponentDefinition.Occurrences
 Debug.Print "Component Name: " & oComponent.Name
 Debug.Print "Component Full File Name: " & oComponent.ReferencedFileDescriptor.FullFileName
 Next
 Else
 MsgBox "The active document is not an assembly."
 End If
End Sub
This code does the following: It checks if the active document is an assembly. If it's an assembly, it iterates through the component occurrences and prints the name and full file name of each component to the VBA Immediate window. You can customize this code or add more functionality based on your specific assembly-related tasks. The Autodesk Inventor API provides a wide range of methods and properties for interacting with assemblies, parts, constraints, and more. Remember to save your VBA project, and you can then run the macro from the "Tools" menu within the VBA IDE. This is just a basic example to get you started. More complex automation tasks can be achieved using the Autodesk Inventor API.
