VB API Creo 3.0

Hello, everyone!

 

I am also trying to connect PTC Creo 3 with Vrisual Basic. Could somebody help me to solve my problem? PTC Creo 3 is already in my computer, but I can't find VB API. This one must be choosen during the installation as Wildfire 4.0? But during the installation I haven't found such options. Is there solution to install it without reinstallation of the whole software.

 

Thank you very much!

 

Christian

Hello, Martin Hanak,

there are so many functions in the introductionbook of VB API, namely Debug.pdf. It is quiet difficult to understand them. In SolidWorks you can firstly do some operations, for example draw a line, and then see the Macro, namely the code. It will be much easier to unterstand in this opposite direction. Is there any way to see the Macro (Code) in Ptc Creo?

Thank you very much!

Hello,

I am sorry I can't help you. I do not use VB API.

The VB-API is not integrated into Pro.E / Creo. Unlike a macro language, the program doesn't record or use the VB-API on its own. Look for the VBUG (Visual Basic Users Guide) pdf file that should have been installed with the program for examples of functions.

Hello, David Schenken,

thank you very much for your response. I can only with the help of VBUG.pdf and APIWizard beginn to lernen. But it is not easy. Are you experienced in this area? Could you give me some suggestion, how to use VB to open a model in Creo? The name can be Test1.

Thanks a lot!

Christian
