AutoCAD software’s COM automation API used for Microsoft VBA isn’t the only COM API that is exposed for use with AutoCAD software. There are 4 lesser-known COM APIs that have been lost in time; they were designed to automate some of the CAD management-related tasks in the AutoCAD drawing environment. The COM APIs that we will cover during this session enable you to create a transmittal package, work with sheet sets, define custom-CAD-standards plug-ins, and link objects to database records. This session will provide an overview of each API and will give you lots of sample code to take back for experimentation.
- Learn how to create a basic transmittal package from a drawing
- Learn how to create and modify sheets and sheet sets
- Learn how to check for and fix issues related to drawing standards
- Learn how to link database records to objects in a drawing
