As I have mentioned many times, the ADN Plugin of the Month exists to show would-be developers how easy it is to personally extend the functionality of our design applications. That’s why all of these plugins come with the source code. You can see a complete list of past and current plugins in the catalog.
In addition to providing training material for development, many Autodesk customers download these simply for their utility. That’s why it is quite common for the ADN team to make updates to these plugins in response to customer requests. Here’s how the latest one went.
On April 19, Gaudenz Jehli of Lazzarini AG emailed firstname.lastname@example.org: "I'm getting an error with the FacetCurve plugin. I'm on WinXP 64 German with German AutoCAD 2011 64-bit."
That same day, Kean Walmsley responded with: “Can you please make sure you’re using version 1.0.1? I have attached it, for your convenience. This version should work on AutoCAD 2011 64-bit. Please let me know how you get on.”
On April 20, I posted version 1.0.1 to the Labs site making it available for everyone to download.
These things don’t have to be any harder than that.
The ADN Plugin of the Month catalog page has plugins for AutoCAD, Inventor, and Revit. Within each section per design application, the plugins are listed from newest to oldest. You will find the FacetCurve plugin under the AutoCAD section in the January 2010 slot.
Responding to feedback is alive in the lab.
