Design Automation: Visual Studio Project Templates for Inventor
All the installed templates are available when creating a new project.
Design Automation for Inventor (recommended)
It is a multiple project solution. There are two project "Debug Plugin Locally" and "Plugin project". It is recommended to start with this template.
Debug Plugin Locally
This project is used for debugging of a plugin. It starts a local Inventor, opens a document and runs the plugin. The project has to reference the plugin (Project → Add Reference). Use this template if you have a solution with a plugin which you need to debug (Add → New Project).
This template creates a new plugin which contains just the most important code.
