Tailoring AutoCAD is one of our most popular e-books. It is part one of a three-part series that describes how to customize every aspect of AutoCAD --from user interfaces to dynamic blocks:
1. Tailoring AutoCAD 2011/12
2. Tailoring CUI for AutoCAD 2011/12
3. Tailoring AutoLISP - DCL - Diesel and scripts.
