Extensions are a new feature of the Dynamo API, they let you interact with the entire Dynamo environment. From searching the canvas for placed nodes to adding physics simulation, the community has been having a blast extending Dynamo!
In this lab you’ll learn how to build one in C# in Visual Studio, we’ll see how extensions can be used to interact with nodes on the canvas, with the graph itself and with the Dynamo View Model. We’ll also see how to set up Visual Studio to automatically build and bundle the extension with other packages for release on the package manager.
– Learn what extensions are and how they relate to custom nodes
– Learn how to write your own Dynamo Extension to affect the Dynamo Graph and nodes
– Learn how to publish an Extension with the Package Manager
