I have an assembly with various parts in it. I am trying to write a routine that will
1) systematically traverse the assembly and find parts that overlap,
2) where they overlap perform a sculpt operation on the parts
Whilst i can do this manually by edit>copy object>sculpt>select surface ... i don't know how to mimic this programmatically.
So far i have coded to do it in a very hamfisted way by making a derived part file from the overlapping parts, opening the derived part file and performing the sculpt, replacing the original part in the assembly with its new derived-sculpted part and then continuing to traverse the assembly tree.. - it is super slow and uses lots of file operations.
Does anyone have any examples of a slick way to do this??
Thanks in advance
