Introduction (AutoLISP)

 
 
 

This tutorial is designed to demonstrate several powerful capabilities of the AutoLISP ® programming environment for AutoCAD ® and introduce features of the AutoLISP language that may be new to you.

The purpose of the tutorial is to draw a garden path using an automated drawing tool that minimizes drafting time and shows the power of parametric programming. You will learn to create a drawing routine that automates the generation of a complex shape—the kind of drafting operation you do not want to have to do manually over and over again.
