Have you ever found yourself at your desk wondering if there is a better way to work? Maybe you downloaded an AutoLISP® or VBA program in the hope that it would make you more efficient, only to find out it does not work quite like you had hoped.

This class introduces you to the various programming languages and interfaces that can be used to automate tasks and create new workflows in AutoCAD.
