it work.

Dim exApp As Object
Dim sheet As Object
below the existing dim call out before the first set and it works like a charm

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.

Awesome! It works, thx!

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.

My problem is in exporting X,Y and Z data of a helix sketch from solidworks to Excel. I checked the above macro, but it doesn't work for helix sketch. anybody can tell me how to fix it?

I corrected the macro. Now it displays the dimensions in millimeters and in meters, if you have a metric.
There was also a problem. If the points of your sketch have anchors, then the coordinates of these interfaces are duplicated. The presence of mates is stored in the properties of the .type = 10. I added a check for type 10 and such points are not displayed, then there is no duplication of points. Here is the file macro.
