    This class will be an introduction to the Object Modeling Framework API, which is a powerful extension of AutoCAD software’s ObjectARX API, and is the backbone for products like AutoCAD Architecture software, AutoCAD MEP software, and AutoCAD Civil 3D software. To begin with, we will introduce AutoCAD software’s ObjectARX API to set the platform for product customization using API. Subsequently, the class will cover some important theoretical concepts in the Object Modeling Framework API, which will be supported by ready-to-demo sample applications. In addition, the class will cover a step-by-step demo for developing a new Object Modeling Framework application to demonstrate creation of custom objects and related features. The class will focus on educating the attendees about how to use the Object Modeling Framework API to automate and simplify their day-to-day design activities. The demo samples chosen will be relevant to industry-specific workflows as supported in AutoCAD Architecture software and AutoCAD MEP software. The class will also cover information about managed version (.NET) of the Object Modeling Framework API and overall API documentation that is available. This session features AutoCAD Architecture and AutoCAD MEP. AIA Approved
