The February ADN Plugin of the Month is the result of a team effort. It was suggested by Paul le Tissier and developed by Kean Walmsley. Thorsten Meinecke and Scott McFarlane provided testing and enhancement suggestions. I have placed it on the Autodesk Labs site for download.
This month's plugin can be used to determine the average of a number of selected points inside AutoCAD. The plugin registers a transparent command that can be called from within 2D and 3D modeling operations, inputting the calculated point directly to AutoCAD's command-line.
The plugin has been tested with AutoCAD 2007 onwards and requires the .NET Framework 3.51 or higher. A pre-built version of the plugin has been provided which works on 32-bit and 64-bit Windows systems. Though the plugin has not been tested with all AutoCAD-based products, it should work.
To demonstrate just how easy it is to develop a plugin, the source code is included for your perusal. Let us know what you think at [email protected] with feedback, requests for enhancements, or success stories of how you have enhanced it yourself.
