Learn how to stay in touch with CodeStack latest updates about SOLIDWORKS API, C#, Visual Basic, DevOps and software development tutorials and tips & trick. Never miss the releases of new useful macros or applications to enhance your SOLIDWORKS experience.
This section describes ways to perform inter-process communication between applications developed for SOLIDWORKS. Communication involves passing of custom parameters or signals between different modules (i.e. macros, add-ins and stand-alone applications).
This could allows to introduce additional level of automation for the applications developed for SOLIDWORKS. As an example the following techniques can be used for the inter-process communication: COM, named pipes, Windows Communication Foundation (WCF), shared memory, buffer, file exchange etc.
Explore this section for detailed guides and examples for establishing the communication between software developed for SOLIDWORKS.
