Hi,

I'd like to absorb all available aspects of a building in to a custom .NET app/DB of mine by accessing the building's object via an interface with the autocad object model. Can anyone give me any relevant information in that regard? E.g. object names, method names etc.? Something to get started looking into with? Thanks

you can start by going through the AuotCAD .NET Developer's Guide found here:
http://docs.autodesk.com/ACD/2010/ENU/AutoCAD%20.NET%20Developer's%20Guide/index.html

Also depending on what version of AutoCAD you are attempting to pull information from, there are addional resources:

Revit:

Architecture:
http://usa.autodesk.com/adsk/servlet/index?siteID=123112&id=3377116

AutoCAD (vanilla):
http://usa.autodesk.com/adsk/servlet/index?siteID=123112&id=1911627

as a final Autodesk programming resource I would suggest checking out the forums found here:
