Over the last decade or so, software developers have amassed a significant amount of intellectual property harnessing AutoCAD software's .NET API. AutoCAD I/O enables standard AutoCAD software commands, as well as those implemented in .NET, to be executed in the cloud, generating results that you can integrate into your own business-to-business or business-to-customer website. This class will take a concrete example of a .NET application creating custom jigsaw puzzles inside AutoCAD software. During the class we will show how to move the core implementation to AutoCAD I/O via the Core Console, and then make use of this to power a new business-to-customer website. Potential customers will be able to specify custom designs for jigsaw puzzles and visualize the results before finalizing their orders.
