This Generation Task will open a SOLIDWORKS Model file and then save it as a new file.
This task can be used to save out parts in assemblies (as an additional file format) that are being driven by Generation Tasks where the Generation Task modifies a part in that assembly.
If you are using the Insert A Cavity In A Part In An Assembly or Insert A Join Feature In A Part In An Assembly Generation Task, and you need an STL file creating from the part that has had the join or cavity applied.
Since this is running as a Generation Task, a model will be open at the time of running.
|(Name)||The unique name for this Task.|
|Model to Save As||The Full File Path of the Part, Assembly or Drawing to Save As.|
|New File Name||The Full Path of the new File including name and extension.|
|Overwrite||TRUE to overwrite the file if it exists, FALSE to leave the original.|
When this task is added the properties are both static and dynamic by default. See How To: Change A Static Property To A Dynamic Property to enable rules to be built on these properties.
|Property Name||Example Rule||Example Result||Meaning|
|Model to Save As||"C:\Main\MyDocuments\Projects\Parts\Bracket.SLDPRT"||C:\Main\MyDocuments\Projects\Parts\Bracket.SLDPRT||This is the Full File Path and name including extension for the file to be Opened and then Saved As.|
|New File Name||"C:\Main\MyDocuments\Saved Parts\SavedBracket.STL"||C:\Main\MyDocuments\Saved Parts\SavedBracket.STL||This is the Full File Path and name including extension for the new file to be Saved as.|
|Overwrite||TRUE||TRUE||TRUE will overwrite the file if it already exists in the new location. FALSE would not.|
