Q - question

How to distinguish between an assembly and weldment in VBA or iLogic?

A - answer If you need to classify an Inventor document if a standard assembly and a weldment assembly, you can use the parameter "SubType". Try e.g. the following iLogic macro:

oModelDoc = ThisDoc.ModelDocument
If oModelDoc.DocumentType=kAssemblyDocumentObject Then MsgBox("ASSEMBLY")
If oModelDoc.SubType="{28EC8354-9024-440F-A8A2-0E0E55D635B0}" Then MsgBox("WELDMENT")
