How can I create an imperfection via the COM interface?

Answer

An imperfection is considered load and is transferred via the interface of the load case. Provided that the interface to the model has already been fetched, the interface to the loads (ILoads) is retrieved, followed by the interface to load case 1 (ILoadCase), if it has already been created:

'set loadcases
Dim iLoads As iLoads
Set iLoads = model.GetLoads
        
'get load case.'
Dim iLc1 As ILoadCase
Set iLc1 = iLoads.GetLoadCase (1, AtNo)
        
'define imperfection
Dim imperf As Imperfection
imperf.Comment = "test"
imperf.Direction = LocalZType
imperf.Inclination = 200
imperf.no = 1
imperf.ObjectList = 1
imperf.Precamber = 300
imperf.PrecamberActivity = ActivityAccording_EN_1993_1_1
        
'set imperfection'
iLc1.PrepareModification
iLc1.SetImperfection imperf
iLc1.FinishModification

The data of the imperfection is then filled out first, here for member 1, and then transferred within a Prepare-/FinishModification block of the load case Interfaces.
