Nifty Dogbone - An Unexpected Error

I have been using and enjoying the Nifty Dogbone add-in inside Fusion360 for some time now. For the past couple weeks, though, I have been unable to use the application at all. I keep getting an unexpected when either trying to use the app or when I try updating; the same error message pops up (see image below). Has anyone experienced this, and/or know of a way to fix this?

Hello,

 

I don't use this add-in but the error message in the log file is: "RuntimeError: 3 : this is not a parametric design"

 

So I think that you have to enable Capture Design History:

@BrianEkins, can you confirm?

@JeromeBriot Thank you! This solved it! A lot simpler than I thought.

@JeromeBriot, thank you for diagnosing and responding to this.

@brandon..m, Jerome was correct.  The code is supposed to work for both direct and parametric designs but there is a bug when working in a non-parametric design.  I've fixed it and am working on some other enhancements.  Watch for a new version of Nifty Dogbones around the end of the month.
