Have you ever wanted to program and customize AutoCAD Civil 3D software but cannot seem to make the jump from Visual Basic® (VBA)? We will walk through a real project idea from start to deployment using Visual Basic .NET and the AutoCAD Civil 3D .NET API. In the process, we will learn about proper referencing, object structure, transactions, and loading our built application into AutoCAD Civil 3D.
- Create, access, and modify Civil 3D objects
- Automatically load the resulting DLL into AutoCAD Civil 3D
- Create a new class library project in Microsoft® Visual Studio® 2010
- Describe the AutoCAD Civil 3D namespace, the object hierarchy, and AutoCAD database transactions
