Subject: Programming IntelliCAD

Another way you can customize CADdirect is to add custom programs written in any of several programming languages that run within CADdirect, including the follow­ing: TX, .NET, LISP, SDS, DCL, VBA, and DIESEL.

In CADdirect, you can run many programs originally created for use with AutoCAD. Specifically, you can use programs written entirely in AutoLISP with no modifica­tion. In addition, you can run many ADS programs originally written for use with AutoCAD after first recompiling them using the CADdirect run-time libraries. Many AutoCAD third-party programs are compatible with CADdirect.
