The ability to tailor or customize AutoCAD software has always been the product's strength. Customization can be as easy as creating a personal workspace. Workspaces provide consistency in the workflow, which can make the user more productive. But what about those frequently used commands or functions that aren’t always readily available? Wouldn't it be nice to be able to execute a command macro, which then would execute a series of commands to avoid that repetition? Wouldn’t it be great to have a custom Ribbon panel where one can easily group all of these custom macros? It's easy to do this without programming knowledge by customizing the CUI (customize user interface)—and you can then share that customization with the entire CAD department to improve productivity and enforce CAD standards for all users. In addition to learning how to add commands to AutoCAD and create new tabs and panels for your workspace, you will learn how to add a custom partial menu to the main customization file and add that to an enterprise CUIx.
