Creating a New CADFEKO Project

Create a new empty project in CADFEKO.

  1. Get a “handle” on the CADFEKO application.
    app = cf.GetApplication()
    Note: With the handle, app, subsequent tasks are done in the same instance of CADFEKO. One could say that the open CADFEKO window is given the label app.
  2. Start a new empty project.
    my_project = app:NewProject()
    Note: This is similar to navigating to the application menu and clicking New in the CADFEKO GUI.

    Alternatively, you could use app.Project to work in an existing project or use app:OpenFile() to open a .cfx file.
