Choose Contours2D by API

Hello, i have a question about CAM API. Can i choose a Contours2D by using API? It is possible?

Based on the documentation i wrote this

 

for setup in setups:
            # Change the program name of each setup to 1234
            programNameParam = setup.parameters.itemByName('job_programName')
            programNameParam.expression = "1234"
            
            for operation in setup.operations:
                # Change tolerance in all operations
                toleranceParam = operation.parameters.itemByName('tolerance')
                toleranceParam.expression = "0.1mm"

                curveSelections = operation.parameters.itemByName('curves')
                curveSelections.expression = ?????????????

Hi @shutov441-vuz .

 

The parameter 'curves' was not found.
I tried it with 'contours' instead.

There is no atmosphere where you can set Contour Selection.
I feel that it is only numerical values and character strings that can set parameters with the API.

 

Also, if you are looking for a parameter name, please refer to here.

I forgot to clarify. These are in the function Multi-Axis Contour.

I can't try it because it's a personal license, but I feel like I can't specify geometry in the same way.

Maybe I can specify a specific curve via the file .f3dhsm-template?

I saved the calculated Contours 2D as a template.
I used this script to import the template into the same document.

Unfortunately, Contour Selection was undefined.
The .f3dhsm-template file doesn't seem to contain any Contour Selection information.

Currently, it's not possible to specify geometry in the CAM API. I know they are planning to add that functionality but I don't know when.
