AutoCAD Tutorial: How to Load a Lisp or Application

In todays video I go over how to load a lisp (autolisp .lsp or .vlx) program into autocad. This will also work for any other cad application like a .vlx or .lsp files as well.

After using the appload command to bring up the application load panel I load the selecting program and then go over an example of using it.

In this case I use the “georefimg” application to automatically geo-reference any image with coordinates in a .wld or .jgw world file. It will take your image and place it in the correct, real world location.

Not only does this cool application make a great example for loading lisps, it’s also an awesome app that I use all the time if I need to reference an image quick. (hint: great productivity tool)

You can get the example lisp file here:
