In this tutorial, Josh Modglin walks through the use of system and drawing variables to configure AutoCAD’s options from the command line. This tutorial takes the application of the dialog driven options configuration and brings it to the command line. The instructor describes how to identify the variables and how to configure them through scripts and/or LISP routines.
- [Instructor] Now all of these configuration options…that we've looked at, most of them can be configured…using variables.…Variables work like commands within AutoCAD,…where we can type them in, such as save time.…And you see the icon for variables is pretty much…the properties or the little cog wheel there.…And so we can make these changes…right from the command line,…so maybe we can save time and change that to 15.…
Xref fade control we can change from zero,…which is not on at all, to being on,…and turning it on using one.…So all of these different variables,…because we can type them in at the command line,…we can configure every user's options within our company…using scripts or LISP routines,…something that we're going to look at…later on in this program.…
