Max script.... is there such thing as AutoCAD script?...
show user profile  jareu
Had an Idea today. most of the parts I use in building machinery, everything from bolts and nuts to bearings and motors etc, I draw in Cad or in 3dsMax. It would be good to have a script which runs through the title of each block, cross checks it to a list of prices and then displays a total cost of parts.

Not asking anyone to do it for me, but does anyone know if AutoCAD supports anything like this or any kind of scripting similar to MAXscript?

It does indeed have a coding language: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/AutoLISP

Though for costing purposes you might be better off with this technology instead of coding: http://www.ellenfinkelstein.com/autocadtips/AutoCAD_tips_extract_attributes.html
