The Autodesk Developer Network (ADN) sponsors a plugin of the month which provides useful functionality with source code to show would-be developers just how easy it is to extend Autodesk design application functionality. I don't think Kean Walmsley has ever said, "It's so easy, even a cave man can do it." but I think that is the DevTech team's goal. This month's plugin is an ASHRAE Viewer for Revit. You can download it from the Labs site:
In addition to providing a new plugin each month, based on your feedback at email@example.com, they often make improvements to previously released plugins. The latest versions of all of the past plugins can be obtained from the plugins catalog page which is sorted by design application and release date.
Last week I posted a new Room / Door Renumbering plugin for Revit. Changes are documented in the plugin's read me file and this update included:
- Now the command can only be started when a plan view is active inside a project document.
- Revit 2012 is now supported.
Advancing what plugins do and how they are made is alive in the lab.
