List of supported file types on Design Automation for Inventor

On the desktop you can easily check which file formats are supported, but how can you check which of those are also supported on the Design Automation for Inventor servers?

You can use a simple AppBundle with code like this to get an up-to-date list of the supported file formats 
 

public void RunWithArguments(Document doc, NameValueMap map)
{
    string addins = "\rList of translator add-ins:\r";
    foreach (ApplicationAddIn addin in inventorApplication.ApplicationAddIns)
    {
        try
        {
            TranslatorAddIn taddin = addin as TranslatorAddIn;
            if (taddin != null)
            {
                addins += $"{addin.DisplayName}, {addin.AddInType.ToString()}, {addin.ClassIdString}\r";
                addins += $"  => extensions: {taddin.FileExtensions}\r";
            }
        }
        catch (Exception ex)
        {
            addins += $"  => error: {ex.Message}\r";
        }
    }
    Trace.WriteLine(addins);
}

Here is the cleaned up (removing the timestamp prefixes) result:
