Every once in a while, I focus a blog article on a member of the Autodesk Labs community. Today's blog article features Subir Kumar Dutta. Subir is a Trainer and Consultant at DCS — Design Automation Consultancy Services. DCS provides corporate and personal (in batch) training on CAD customizations and Design Automation.
Subir is based in Pune, India. He loves to do fun things with the AutoCAD product line. Subir develops small applications on his own using the AutoCAD API to motivate new students to learn it. Subir has his own YouTube channel where you can too can witness the fun he is having:
I particularly like AutoCAD Under Fire.
The ADN Plugin of the Month program was intended to encourage this type of fun. Though the program is no longer active on Autodesk Labs (i.e., no new plugins coming), you can still download the plugins that were created as part of the program or visit the App Center to get the latest ones:
The Labs plugins include the source code, so if you wish to modify them to better suit your own needs, you too can have the fun. Actually Subir is open to making his plugins available as plugins of the month. You can express your opinion as to which ones he should package up, including the source code, to firstname.lastname@example.org.
