Welcome to the AutoCAD 2013 Customization Techniques Workshop, with me, Scott Onstott. I've been teaching and writing about AutoCAD and other design software products for over a decade, and I'm excited to be your guide in this course. My books include AutoCAD 2013, and AutoCAD LT 2013 Essentials, and Enhancing Architectural Drawings and models with Photoshop. The customization techniques workshop is for those who wish to modify AutoCAD to better fit the way that they work.

He begins by showing you how to create a complex dynamic block that uses multiple visibility states, parameters, and actions so that one dynamic block can do the job of many static blocks. Then learn how to configure physical output devices, edit command aliases, and create custom panels and linetypes. Finally, discover how to automate repetitive tasks with action macros, scripts, and Lisp routines to craft tools for increased productivity.

I begin by showing you how to create a complex dynamic block that uses multiple visibility states, parameters and actions.

So, that one dynamic block can do the job of many static blocks. You will also learn how to configure physical output devices from the system printer, to AutoCAD printers, to plot style tables, so that what you print is exactly what you expect. You will also engage in projects that teach you how to design the user interface. So you can create custom panels on the ribbon. Edit command aliases, and create custom line types. Finally you will learn how to automate repetitive tasks with action macros, scripts and Lisp routines to craft tools for increased productivity.

So if you want to custoumise your day to day autocad experience So, you can design and draw in a more productive and efficient manner then this course is for you, let's get started
