Class Description: This workshop was the top-rated 90-minute lab at AU in 2003. This year you can learn to make changes to thousands of AutoCAD drawings at once by making an AutoCAD script, a Windows batch file, and an AutoLISP program work together. Maybe you need to redefine a block definition in every drawing file (the company title block changed again!), reduce file sizes as much as possible in all archived drawings, create individual drawing files from each block definition in a group of drawings, or take any other action that can be completed with a LISP program. In this hands-on lab, you will get a chance to sit back and watch the computer do all the work.
