I wish this book will guide he who uses AutoCAD in becoming a real expert. That kind of AutoCAD expert that is acquainted with, understands and can manipulate the program’s inner workings to achieve the desired output in a fast and efficient way. He who is not satisfied with what comes out of the box, but demands more.

Among the most significant new contributions of recent versions we have 3D modeling, including surfaces associativity. To them, and other advanced techniques, including parameterization, reactors, user graphic interfaces and compiling applications, more than half of this new book is devoted. The contents are updated to AutoCAD 2013.

Source code has been tested with the Windows 32 and 64 bit versions. Although much of the above also applies to previous versions there is no excuse not to study it using the latest release. Autodesk offers student versions of most of its software completely free of charge. To obtain them, simply register in the Autodesk Education Community website ( or in the Autodesk Students Facebook page.
