With the Thanksgiving holiday approaching and Autodesk University almost upon us, I decided to release the December ADN Plugin of the Month early. Fear not, you can still get the November ADN Plugin, String Search for Revit, from the ADN Plugin Catalog page:
This catalog page includes all of the plugins that we have ever featured on Autodesk Labs.
This month's plugin is HierarchyClone for Inventor. It is available on the ADN Plugins page:
As noted in its read me, this plugin can be used to copy and rename Inventor IAM/IDW/DWG file along with any files it references (including substitute parts and OLE references). If the assembly/drawing to be cloned is large, the cloning process may be time-consuming. In this case, it is recommend to use the CloneFolder application to perform this work in the background rather than tying up your running Inventor application.
This month's plugin was written by Barbara Han with significant contributions from Vladimir Ananiev and feedback from Xiaodong Liang, Ishwar Nagwani, Philippe Leefsma, and Kean Walmsley. Way to go gang! Let us know what you think of their work at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Cloning is alive in the lab. Cloning is alive in the lab.
