.NETScript for AutoCAD
.NETScript for Revit
.NETScript for Inventor
.NETScript for Fusion 360
After working with Autodesk desktop software and APIs for years, I decided to create an application that run across Autodesk products. The app helps users to learn, and developers to customize the software. It plans to be a one-stop-shop for everything about Autodesk software.
What it does
Integrates Autodesk Forge Viewer to view and share CAD file directly in AutoCAD, Revit, Inventor and Fusion 360. It includes a Fusion 360 plugin which has the export of current model to the web viewer.
Provides targeted online resources to learn software with in-application learning browser. Autodesk University classes are also included.
Run AutoCAD code (AutoLISP, C#, VB.NET) directly from programming blogs. Indexes of Autodesk Forge learning resources and ready examples.
Automates desktop software with web applications which run directly inside Autodesk software (AutoCAD, Revit, Inventor and Fusion 360).
How I built it
Challenges I ran into
Time to develop when I was working full-time at day and my side projects at night. Financial limitation when I am self-employed for my projects.
Accomplishments that I'm proud of
The app works as the plugins for multiple Autodesk and Microsoft products.
What I learned
Customer relationship to understand what they need, by feedbacks when they use my application.
Challenging to build a large scale software by my own.
What's next for NetOnApp
Autodesk Forge Viewer application for real-time sharing from desktop to web.
More web applications based on CADapi.js for AutoCAD, Revit, Inventor and Fusion 360, that drive those desktop software directly from the web.
