Description

Description

Productivity through programming has never been a friendly or intuitive process. Whether you are using LISP, VBA, or menus and macros, if you don't get the right syntax, it won't work. AutoCAD 2009 introduced the ability to build custom macros and commands simply by using AutoCAD software. In this class, we cover how to record, play, save, and share macros that automate creating, editing, and modifying geometry, as well as simplify drawing maintenance and utilities, with one custom command. Reducing repetitive steps and tasks is the key to personal productivity. It is time to tap into the power of the Action Recorder!

Target Audience

Target Audience

AutoCAD casual users to power users who want to gain more productivity by reducing repetitive steps and tasks without knowing programming languages and without having to customize the menu, ribbon, or interface
