    Is this possible to implement as a real tool on Alibre when it's ready?

    Possible yes, but I don't know the probability.

    I will have another private beta test next week. If anyone wants to join in please let me know in a private message conversation on these forums or email me:

    I hope there will be some Alibre peoples reading this thread and giving you the possibility to start to bring it as a native tool...you have done so big work with it already.

    Mika, the Alibre API allows production of Add-ons which can be linked to a button on the Add-ons ribbon or even have their own ribbon tab. You can find a few examples in the API section of forum.

    Script uses the API, but is meant to be simpler to use/get started for those not having as much development experience - so scripts will typically be a little clunkier to launch, but you'll get access to things that may never be created as a full add-on. Alternatively, script might give a way to test out an idea, before putting in all the effort to produce an add-on.

    So, if I'm using some tool via add-on, I do not need to see those codelines...just as in a scripts? If there will be fluently working Frame Builder Add-On, I'm ready to pay some to get it...

    With a "Protected" Alibre Script program the user doesn't see any code either - but I will admit that there are a couple more steps to run it.
