How to use functionality from managed dll in my fusion 360 plugin.

Fusion 360 api is new for me. Before I'm working with AutoCAD api. I want create plugin for fusion 360 which will be use static class from my managed dll. Is it right if I create Class Library project in VS, and add to project references my manage dll, and compile all of this to Fusion 360 addin folder?

I haven't personally done it but what you want to search the web for is how to call managed functions from an unmanaged C++ program.  There were quite a few different answers when I did a quick search so it doesn't seem as simple as you might hope. 


Your Fusion add-in will be an unmanaged C++ dll.  Fusion will create the skeleton for you if you use the "Scripts and Add-Ins" command to create a new add-in.
