EDIF2CCZ

Customer inquired about how to automate the conversion of EDIF to CCZ files using CAMCAD.

 

Here is a very simple example:

* it launches CAMCAD

* loads the EDIF file using the OpenCADFile API

* saves a CCZ file using SaveCompressedDataFileAs

* closes the project window

* closes CAMCAD

 

Short and sweet. Code below, vb6 project and video attached.

Thanks

Chris

 


Option Explicit
Public objCAMCAD As CAMCAD.Application

 

 

 

Private Sub Command1_Click()
Dim path As String
Dim lngPID As Long

 

' put your camcad path and executable name here
lngPID = Shell("C:\Program Files\Router Solutions\CAMCAD\camcad4.7.559.exe /nosplash", vbNormalFocus)
Set objCAMCAD = New CAMCAD.Application

 

' path to file to convert
path = "c:\temp\EDIF2CCZ\"

 

objCAMCAD.OpenCadFile path & "schematic1.edf"
objCAMCAD.SaveCompressedDataFileAs path & "test_schematic.ccz"
objCAMCAD.CloseActiveDocument
objCAMCAD.Exit

 


End Sub
