Thanks Wayne! I'll check the guide when I've time for it...
Thanks for that, can anyone point me to a manual/tutorial if you want to build an add in that launches from within Autodesk inventor?
I've used the Autodesk template for visual studio which works, but I need to grasp the registering of the dll and how the add in displays in the menu bar.
If you search the "Mod The Machine" blog you will find many articles on Add-Ins. Lab 10 available in this post will show you how to make an Add-In. (The lab has steps to create a registry free Add-In that adds a button to the ribbon).
Hi Wayne thanks so much for the tutorials and stuff you have been publishing! I have been following your posts as of recent regarding programming the Inventor API and its very useful. I have been through the first series of tutorials as well, posted I think in 2011 if I am not mistaken. I have learnt a lot back then and I hope to learn more with this new series. I am new to programming in general and basically started programming VB.net because I wanted to automate certain tasks in Inventor.
I would like to put in a request about programming (in-process) add-ins for Inventor if I may. Could you please give a bit more detail about this topic with more examples and general ideas and concepts? This is still a grey area for me, even after having gone through the lesson you suggested above. For the seasoned programmers out there that’s bumped into similar concepts before during their programming careers it might be a walk in the park. Us noob’s are struggling to keep head above water. Thanks anyway we do appreciate any help we get!
Congratulations it looks like a great post, I want to Know if there's anyway to make a plug-in like a generator, that given such data it can generate a solid body.
