uClicky – The simple yet powerful automation tool

uClicky - The simple yet powerful automation tool
So, I was going to try to sell this software – but then I remembered how much I loved my HowToAutoCAD.com subscribers, so decided to give this away for free.

This is a simple little tool I’ve created for Windows – it’s not just for AutoCAD®, but it can be very useful for any tasks both AutoCAD® and non-AutoCAD® related. It’s called uClicky.

Basically uClicky allows you to write a sequence of actions to be carried out by your computer, such as moving the mouse, clicking mouse buttons and writing text. There are many functions available in uClicky, and the list of available functions is always expanding, as I think of new ideas.

So, if you had a spreadsheet of data and you want to loop through each row, copy and paste the data to some other window and then click a button, 1000 times, this is the tool for you!

Check it out – its neat. Or at least I think it is 🙂

Here’s a brief introduction to uClicky (annoyingly the mouse animations aren’t visible):

I’d love for this tool to go global – I think it has potential to do so due to its simplicity, and coding-style. So feel free to tell a friend about this great new free application that you can get – if you’re a blogger feel free to post about this, and if you’re not a blogger, just tell a friend!

That’s all for now,

Will’s little quiz

As many of you know I’m currently writing my dissertation for Uni – this also links in nicely with a project I’m working on for my readers…

Anywhoo, I have a small puzzle/quiz/test I need many people to take, and I would be very grateful if you could spare 1 minute to complete it (yes, it should take about 1 minute!!).

If you haven’t already spotted the link on my site, it’s http://howtoautocad.com/dissertation/

Many thanks!



Presenting: The HowToAutoCAD Forum

HowToAutoCAD.com’s life started at the end of 2010, and since then has grown from a newborn baby of a web-presence to — let say, a toddler. The amount of interest in my site has been fantastic, and I’m constantly getting emails and helping people around the world with AutoCAD® issues.

Whilst this is great, the only beneficiaries of these instances of support are the person I’m helping, and me. Ideally, you’d want a place to ask questions that is public, so that they can be used as a reference in the future. Also, asking questions in a public domain gives the opportunity for others to provide additional support, which helps even more. So, ideally, you’d want some kind of “forum” for this to take place…

The HowToAutoCAD.com Forum has been born! It is now accessible from the navigation bar at the top of HowToAutoCAD.com.

I want to create an online community of support, so that we can all progress and become better at using AutoCAD®. I’m very interested in all you have to say, and I welcome discussion about anything.

Please do come along – registration is very quick and easy, and should take you less than a minute. I’d also like to take the opportunity to encourage you to introduce yourselves in the “Say Hello!” forum, so that we can get to know who people are, where you’re from etc. And who knows, maybe in a few years I’ll give out prizes for the longest serving members of the forum ;-).

Thanks all – I’m looking forward to getting stuck into this forum!


AutoCAD® Fractal – A bit of fun…

Ok, I’ve got a few tips and tricks on here, and I thought I’d post something totally random, but actually quite interesting – interesting at least to me anyway! Take a look at the video below, which shows you an easy way to produce the paper folding fractal in AutoCAD:

I hope you enjoyed that – just don’t crash AutoCAD® by repeating the process too many times!
