MATLAB does not provide a direct interface to AutoCAD. It does support communicating with other applications through ActiveX. You can use ActiveX to interface to AutoCAD from within MATLAB. Please see the External Interfaces documentation for more information:

Hi, You can draw MATLAB calculation results in AutoCAD by "COM" object (ActiveX).  - connect to AtoCAD by ActiveX  - invoke the AutoCAD method to draw figure (point, line, arc, spline etc)
You can find a simple e-book in AMZON by searching "MATLAB+AutoCAD"
