8 Ways to Customise Your AutoCAD

Customise in ways you never thought possible

AutoCAD

 

  1. Exchange Apps
    Customise your software with Applications from the Autodesk App Store.  These applications are all approved by Autodesk. The Exchange Apps marketplace includes tools for improving general productivity, drawing content, and applications created by third party developers for specific purposes. These apps are simple to download and install.
     
  2. Scripts
    Create script (SCR) files to automate a set of specific commands that you find yourself repeatedly doing. Script files are ASCII text files with the file extension .scr and can be edited using a simple text editor such as NotePad on Windows or TextEdit on Mac OS. If you can type commands and options at the command line, you can write a script file!
     
  3. Action Recorder
    Use the Action Recorder to record commands and input values that you can play back as an action macro to automate any repetitive tasks.
     
  4. Command Aliases
    Create command aliases for fast command line entry of your commonly used commands. Command alias are shortened command names that can be entered at the Command Prompt as an alternative to the standard full command name and are stored in a program parameter (PGP) file.
     
  5.  Dynamic Blocks
    Dynamic blocks allow you to create one single block that can be modified in real-time, to create block configurations with new attributes. Dynamic blocks contain rules, or parameters, for how to change the appearance of the block reference when it is inserted in the drawing. You can insert one block that can change shape, size, or configuration instead of inserting one of many static block definitions.
     
  6. Customisable and expandable ribbon UI
    Customise and expand the ribbon tabs, panels, and tools to suit your needs and meet your company’s standards. It’s easy to do in the Customise User Interface (CUI) dialog box.
     
  7. Profiles
    Create and share profiles that store program settings for different users or projects. Profile settings can include information such as default search and project file paths, template file locations, default linetype and hatch patterns, and printer defaults.
     
  8. Plotter Configurations and Plot Styles
    Create plot configurations to configure your output devices for publishing or plotting drawings. Use custom plot styles to specify how object properties such as color and lineweight are represented when plotted.
