Comments: 0 | Categories: AutoCAD , AutoCAD .NET , Geometry , HTML , JavaScript , Notification / Events , Object properties , Runtime , User interface
The title of this one is a little specific – the post actually deals with the scenario of passing data from .NET to an HTML-defined palette, as well as some other tips & tricks – but it’s something I wanted...

Comments: 0 | Categories: Conferences
I was expecting yesterday’s TEDx event at CERN to be good, but it was way beyond that. The overall theme of the event was “Forward: Charting the Future with Science.” It comprised 17 separate sessions grouped into 3 sections –...

September 24, 2014: Off to TEDxCERN
Comments: 0 | Categories: Conferences
I last went to CERN back in 1996 (although it may have been late 1995) for an ADGE conference. I think that ADGE stood for “Autodesk Developer Group Europe”, but the A might also have been for AUGI. Any old-timers...

I was very happy to read the news on Shaan’s blog: 123D Catch is now available on Android. I blogged about its availability via the web and on iOS, a couple of years ago, but there’s now an Android version...

September 19, 2014: Exploding nested AutoCAD blocks using .NET
Comments: 0 | Categories: AutoCAD , AutoCAD .NET , Blocks , Drawing structure
Some time ago I posted about how to use Entity.Explode() to do something similar to AutoCAD’s EXPLODE command. At the time it was mentioned in the comments that BlockReference.ExplodeToOwnerSpace() had some relative benefits, but it’s taken me some time to...

Comments: 0 | Categories: AutoCAD , AutoCAD .NET , Geometry , Graphics system , Solid modeling
After last week’s post on importing Minecraft data – in this case from Tinkercad – into AutoCAD, in today’s post we’re going to focus on the ultimately more interesting use case of generating Minecraft data from AutoCAD. We’re going to...

September 11, 2014: Importing Minecraft data into AutoCAD
Comments: 0 | Categories: AutoCAD , AutoCAD .NET , Geometry , Graphics system , Solid modeling , Tinkercad
A mere 2 among 100 million registered users, my boys are crazy about Minecraft. I’ve been looking into how I might be able to help them use Autodesk tools (well, AutoCAD) to generate Minecraft content. In this post we’ll take...

September 9, 2014: SINDEX 2014 – Switzerland’s industrial automation trade show
Comments: 0 | Categories: Conferences , Robotics
Last week I spent a morning at SINDEX 2014, which is apparently Switzerland’s largest technology exhibition. Its main focus is on industrial electronics and automation: not exactly fields I know a lot about, but ones that I do find to...

Comments: 0 | Categories: AutoCAD , AutoCAD .NET , Geo-location
I hadn’t planned on writing a third part to this series, but then Mads Paulin – who I mentioned in the last post – got back to me with some information that’s really worth sharing. I’d pinged Mads while looking...
