VB.NET para AutoCAD. Primeros pasos (I) A estas alturas no entraremos a mencionar las excelencias de AutoCAD, el programa de CAD más extendido a nivel mundial, ni el formato DWG, estándar de facto en la industria del CAD.

Por supuesto que si. ¿Qué framework o versión de Visual Studio debe utilizar? Obtendrá esta información en la web de Autodesk o en los foros de la comunidad de desarrolladores. Pasos a seguir: Cree un proyecto nuevo en Visual Studio del tipo Biblioteca de Clases.
