    Dim sheet As Object
    Doesn't work. Is there something new needed for it to work in SW 2015?

    I used the above macro to export nodal points of an fsae frame to Ansys Workbench. For some reason, the orientation of the points relative to each other is correct , however the distances between them a grealy reduced. The overall plot of the frame has been scaled down. Can anyone tell me why this has happened? It will be a great help.

    I had to make some additional modifications to the file to get it work. You can also see how you can keep dimensions at their original size. Other notes: ensure that the sketch is selected before you run the macro.
