Introducing Design Automation tutorial: AutoCAD, Inventor & Revit engines

Design Automation v3 went to Public Beta last month with AutoCAD, Inventor and 3dsMax, today also including Revit engine.

Now we're glad to include it on the Learn Forge tutorial, available in .NET. Everything with 5 steps under Modify your models section:

1. Create a server
2. Basic app UI
3. Prepare a plugin
4. Define an activity
5. Execute workitem 

Start now!

This tutorial uses the new Design Automation .NET SDK available on NuGet. For Revit engine it also uses the DesignAutomationBridge, also on NuGet. These packages are in Beta, just like the API (v3).
