book aims at guiding he who uses AutoCAD on a daily basis in becoming a
true 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. That expert who is not
satisfied with what comes out of the box, but demands more.
automating the creation and shaping of 3D objects, whether 3DSolids,
subdivision meshes, associative or NURBS surfaces and setting the points
of view and visualization modes that help in understanding the
generated models. To these and other advanced techniques, including
parameterization, reactors, the graphical user interface and building
applications, more than half of this book is dedicated.
For this we
use Visual LISP, the tool of choice to customize and extend AutoCAD’s
features, be it by its capabilities as a basic scripting language to
automate repetitive tasks or taking advantage of advanced drawing
database access possibilities and the management of properties and
methods exposed through the ActiveX interface.
techniques, including the use of the Visual LISP Integrated Development
Environment, are explained starting from scratch. No previous experience
in programming is required to profit from this book's contents. Updated for AutoCAD 2013.
