Need a Toolkit API to tessellate Text objects in Creo Sketches.

Need a Toolkit API to tessellate Text objects in Creo Sketches.

We are using ProToolKit for an application that imports Creo files.

Apart from the part solid geometry, a requirement is to import sketches those contain Text entities. We are currently using ProToolKit API call ProSectionEntityGet(section, entityID, Pro2dEntdef) For text items this returns entity type as Pro_2D_Text.

As we understand from earlier communication with PTC tech support, there is no such API available to tessellate this object or to convert it into a collection of lines/splines. it would be usefull to have such an API, or atleast some tool to "explode" text into geometric entities.

 

Typical application of this api would be marking or cuting-off text from a sheet metal part, where one would want the tool to follow outline of text.

I am sure there would be other applications/user scenarios. I would appreciate if ayone shares their ideas/known workarounds.

 

Regards
