API Instructions: FileSplitter

Create Individual Files For Each Configuration/Sheet



  • Place the FileSplitter folder extracted from the FileSplitter.zip file to any location you desire.
  • You can edit the macro for code review from within SOLIDWORKS by selecting Tools, Macro, Edit. Browse to the location where you placed the FIleSplitter folder following this path \FileSplitter\SwMacro\ and select the FileSplitter.vbproj file.


  • With a SOLIDWORKS part, assembly, or drawing open and active select Tools, Macro, Run.
  • In the “Open” dialog box make sure the macro type is set as highlighted below
SW VSTA Macros dll
  • Browse to the location where you placed the FileSplitter folder following this path \FileSplitter\SwMacro\bin\ and select the FileSplitter.dll file.
  • The macro will then take the active document and create a new file in the same directory with a new name following this structure: original filename space hyphen space configuration/sheet name. It will warn you to overwrite if a file with that name already exists.
  • Each of the new files will only contain one configuration/sheet with all of the others removed hence splitting the original file out into separate files for each configuration/sheet found in the original active document. No changes will be made to the active document itself.
