Translating tooltips in AutoCAD, Inventor and Revit using .NET

Once again, it turned out to be pretty straightforward to add Inventor support to our TransTips application. We now have a single solution which builds plugins for AutoCAD, Inventor and Revit. The plugins share a common translation and caching engine as well as a WPF graphical user interface for selecting languages.

Here’s a demonstration of the various plugins in action:

I’ve fixed the right-to-left issue highlighted in the video, incidentally.

The next steps are to implement an in-product editing capability and then perhaps to support 3ds Max. One great aspect of this project is that I’m getting to learn a little more about developing for products other than AutoCAD, which is fun. :-)
