Our first plugin of the month was written by our own Kean Walmsley. He first published it on his blog at:
Mark Doel, from RMJM Hong Kong Ltd., provided the inspiration for this plugin and provided preliminary testing. The Offset in Xref plugin can be used with AutoCAD to enable the OFFSET command to work with externally referenced drawings. Once loaded, the standard OFFSET will work with external referenced content: instead of responding "Cannot offset that object.", the plugin will automatically copy the selected object into the current drawing, allowing it to participate with the OFFSET command.
You can get your hands on the plugin at:
Please let us know how it works out at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Getting this plugin party started is alive in the lab.
