AutoCAD Expert s Visual LISP
This book aims at guiding he who uses AutoCAD on a daily basis in becoming a true expert. That kind of AutoCAD expert that is acquainted with, understands and can manipulate the program's inner workings to achieve the desired output in a fast and efficient way. That expert who is not satisfied with what comes out of the box, but demands more. Like automating the creation and shaping of 3D objects, whether 3DSolids, subdivision meshes, associative or NURBS surfaces and setting the points of view and visualization modes that help in understanding the generated models. To these and other advanced techniques, including parameterization, reactors, the graphical user interface and building applications, more than half of this book is dedicated.For this we use Visual LISP, the tool of choice to customize and extend AutoCAD's features, be it by its capabilities as a basic scripting language to automate repetitive tasks or taking advantage of advanced drawing database access possibilities and the management of properties and methods exposed through the ActiveX interface. LISP programming techniques, including the use of the Visual LISP Integrated Development Environment, are explained starting from scratch. No previous experience in programming is required to profit from this book's contents. Updated for AutoCAD 2013. User support is available at http://lispexpert.blogspot.com/. The source code for all the examples included in the book can be downloaded freely from the author's website http://www.togores.net/autocadexpert.
AutoCAD Platform Customization

AutoCAD Platform Customization: AutoLISP provides real-world examples that show you how to do everything from modifying graphical objects and reading and setting system variables to communicating with external programs. It also features a resources appendix and downloadable datasets and customization examples—tools that ensure swift and easy adoption. Find out how to remove unused buttons from the ribbon to gain screen space Discover how to create macros for frequently performed actions, or add your company's logo to the bottom of every drawing Learn to perform more involved customizations, like communicating with a database to validate and update information entered in drawing layers Ideal for CAD administrators, senior drafters, savvy users, and other professionals and students Through detailed discussions and tutorials that include real-world examples, this book gives you the power to enhance your program's experience and output.
Instant Autodesk AutoCAD 2014 Customization with NET
Filled with practical, step-by-step instructions and clear explanations for the most important and useful tasks. An instruction-based guide with examples written in the C# programming language. VB.NET programmers can also take advantage of these examples by using one of the free conversion websites to convert the examples to VB.NET.Clear, step-by-step instructions and complete code examples illustrate the processes, making it easy to develop your own custom AutoCAD tools.This book is perfect if you are interested in customizing AutoCAD 2014 using the .NET API. You should have a basic familiarity with programming. Prior experience of customizing AutoCAD is helpful, but not required (as is a basic understanding of AutoCAD commands). If you have AutoCAD customization experience with another API, such as Lisp or VBA, you may find the examples in this book helpful when learning the .NET API.You should also have a basic familiarity with Microsoft Visual Studio 2010 (the Express editions are fine).

This tutorial offers a complete introduction to the Visual LISP language, environment and editor. Advanced topics include data manipulation and programming dialog boxes.
Highly accessible treatment covers cons cell structures, evaluation rules, programs as data, recursive and applicable programming styles. Nearly 400 illustrations, answers to exercises, "toolkit" sections, and a variety of complete programs. 1990 edition.
Shows how to program in the bottom-up style that is ideal for Lisp programming, and includes a collection of Lisp programming techiques that shows how to take advantage of the language's design for efficient programming in a variety of (non-AI) applications.
The Humane Interface
The honeymoon with digital technology is over: millions of users are tired of having to learn huge, arcane programs to perform the simplest tasks and have had enough of system crashes. In "The Humane Interface", Jef Raskin--the legendary, controversial creator of the original Apple Macintosh project--shows that there is another path. The book presents breakthrough solutions for navigation, error management, and more, with detailed case studies from the author's own work.
Designing the User Interface
This is the eBook of the printed book and may not include any media, website access codes, or print supplements that may come packaged with the bound book. The much-anticipated fifth edition of Designing the User Interface provides a comprehensive, authoritative introduction to the dynamic field of human-computer interaction (HCI). Students and professionals learn practical principles and guidelines needed to develop high quality interface designs—ones that users can understand, predict, and control. It covers theoretical foundations, and design processes such as expert reviews and usability testing. Numerous examples of direct manipulation, menu selection, and form fill-in give readers an understanding of excellence in design The new edition provides updates on current HCI topics with balanced emphasis on mobile devices, Web, and desktop platforms. It addresses the profound changes brought by user-generated content of text, photo, music, and video and the raised expectations for compelling user experiences. Provides a broad survey of designing, implementing, managing, maintaining, training, and refining the user interface of interactive systems. Describes practical techniques and research-supported design guidelines for effective interface designs Covers both professional applications (e.g. CAD/CAM, air traffic control) and consumer examples (e.g. web services, e-government, mobile devices, cell phones, digital cameras, games, MP3 players) Delivers informative introductions to development methodologies, evaluation techniques, and user-interface building tools. Supported by an extensive array of current examples and figures illustrating good design principles and practices. Includes dynamic, full-color presentation throughout. Guides students who might be starting their first HCI design project Accompanied by a Companion Website with additional practice opportunities and informational resources for both students and professors.
