Manual Calculations for Steel Design using API

1633 Views, 8 Replies

Hello,

 

I'm trying to design a steel section using VB. I guess the procedure is calling the IRDimCodeService interface and the ModalEditManualParams method. I can not seem to access the IRdimCodeService (IRDimClient.GetRDimCodeService) as i can't implement IRDimClient.

Can anyone help me with this?

 

Thanks

Hello Rafal,

 

Any ideas on how to access IRDimClient? Does it derive from IRDimServer? I cannot access it through RobotApplication.Kernel.GetExtension("RDimClient").

 

Thanks,

 

Odysseas

I have never gone that far with API :-(

I will do my best checking it.

IRDimClient - This interface is implemented by the external  COM codes (standards). It is not available in Robot.

With the help of COM interfaces you can not call any of the windows.

So there's no way i can manually input Forces for the section design using the API (by accessing the dialog box shown in the attached file)?

No, not possible.

Forces should be imported from model.
