Review: ADN Plugin of the Month, Draw Order By Layer for AutoCAD

8.710 FANS

Autodesk Labs is the ‘Go to’ site if you are looking for the Bleeding edge of Autodesk Technology. Autodesk Labs have been working with the Autodesk Developer Network (ADN) to bring you the ‘Plugin of the month’ – (usually) an Autocad based 3rd party plugin that has been partially developed by a company or individual who is willing to donate the source code, and partially developed by the ADN Team.

The idea is to give examples of how the Autodesk product API’s (Application programming interfaces) can be used to enhance the programmes for the end user. This months programme was based on a plugin originally written by Terry Dotson.
