It's no secret that the point of the Autodesk Developer Network (ADN) Plugin of the Month is to encourage would-be developers to develop their own plugins for AutoCAD, Inventor, etc. That's why we include the source code with each plugin. We want everyone to see how easy it is. A side benefit of this process is that many customers just want to use the plugin instead of developing their own. We are fine with that too.
Towards that end, the ADN team routinely updates previously released plugins in response to customer feedback.
Last month they did so for BrowsePhotosynth for AutoCAD. As they do with each update, the read me identifies the changes:
- Added different download modes (synchronous and asynchronous) specified via an associated system variable BROWSEPSSYNC
- Added controlling of logging specified via an associated system variable BROWSEPSLOG
- Fixed all download modes to break properly on escape
- Adjusted asynchronous download to minimize shared state
You can download the latest BrowsePhotosyth for AutoCAD or any of the past plugins of the month:
Thanks for the continued feedback to [email protected]. We hope you continue to find these plugins useful as developers or users.
We now return you to your regularly scheduled programming.
