That's what I developed it for.

Thank you for providing the sample code of ListGetPreviewBitmap()!

SolidWorks Preview plugin 1.3.0.0

Post by *tbeu » 2012-06-14, 20:39 UTC

Plugin Version 1.3.0.0 is released:
• added full support of Unicode
• fixed bitmap scaling according to display options (fit image to window, fit only larger image, center image)
• fixed aspect ratio of extracted bitmap
• fixed: extracted bitmap is no longer saved to a temporary file
• removed options Width and Height from section [SolidWorks Preview Settings] of sldpreview.ini.
• removed dependencies on external libraries, i.e. SW_ExtractBitmap[64].dll are no longer required and thus can be unregistered and deleted

After the updating to sw 2015, the plugin doesn't show the previews of the files created with this new version of Solidworks. I have contacted Mr. Thomas (the author of the plugin), and he informed that he will be busy in the earliest times and will not be able to update the plugin.

The plugin is open source, so if anyone would settle to work on this, that would be great. Me being the licensed SW user, could ask SW dealer for information on the 2015 version file descriptions, and provide with any test files. So please let me know if I can be any help.

There is a model in the format of SW2015, after some time the file was downloaded .SLDASM and .SLDDRW

I downloaded the SW 2015 test file and could reproduce the issue. Indeed, SW 2015 changed the file format which now no longer is COM Structured Storage: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/SolidWorks#File_format
