API Programming Tools
Your work might include some repetitive and time-consuming tasks. We can create a custom SOLIDWORKS Add-In to complete those tasks in seconds. Or instead we can supply your in-house programmers with tools to create your Add-In with no learning curve. Your call. Visit us at www.bitwright.com.
Tools for Programming the SOLIDWORKS API With Visual Basic Bitwright Software publishes programmers' tools for Visual Basic. With Bitwrights' tools, Visual Basic program can use features of SOLIDWORKS otherwise accessible only to C++. Bitwright Add-In Maker turns a Visual Basic-compiled application into a SOLIDWORKS add-in. Users can start and stop your program from the SOLIDWORKS Add-In Manager, or run your application automatically at SOLIDWORKS startup. Bitwright SolidMenu inserts custom menus into the SOLIDWORKS menu bar—or modifies existing SOLIDWORKS menus—directly from a Visual Basic program. User picks on new menu items show up as events inside the Visual Basic program. An intuitive graphical interface makes custom menu design easy. Bitwright SolidToolbar inserts custom “dockable” toolbars into SOLIDWORKS directly from a Visual Basic program. User picks on the custom toolbar show up as events inside the Visual Basic program. An intuitive graphical interface makes custom toolbar design easy. Bitwright SolidEvents relays the SOLIDWORKS API Notifications to a Visual Basic program. More complete than Visual basics' own “WithEvents“ technology, SolidEvents is a lot easier to use as well. SolidMenu, SolidToolbar, and SolidEvents are all easy-to-use ActiveX controls: just add them to the Visual Basic Toolbox and draw them on a form in your project.
Bitwright Software has been working under the hood -- programming the API -- of SOLIDWORKS mechanical design software for over twenty years. We create both custom applications and commodity tools. We are a SOLIDWORKS Solution Partner and our main programmer is a CSWP.
