The ADN Plugin of the Month program brings you a new plugin each month. The source code is included to show you how easy it is to extend the functionality of our design applications.
The Plugin of the Month for February 2010 was Screenshot for Inventor. This plugin can be used with Inventor to simplify the process of capturing images of parts of documents, or the entire document or application window. It optionally allows you to remap the background to white and the foreground to black, convert the entire image to grayscale, as well as sending the captured image directly to a printer.
In addition to releasing a new plugin each month, the ADN team often updates previously released ones. On Monday I posted an updated Screenshot for Inventor. Based on your feedback, as documented in its read me file, the version 1.1.1 changes include two defect corrections:
- Fixed the problem of selecting a region in perspective view
- Fixed the problem of printing on a 64-bit OS
This latest update merely includes a VB.Net project file for those who wish to modify or extend the functionality.
So keep the feedback coming in to email@example.com.
Plugin evolution is alive in the lab.
