There's a couple of Apis you might look at. The below sub adds points but in the opposite direction.
Code: [Select]
Declare Function SetCursorPos& Lib "user32" (ByVal X As Long, ByVal Y As Long)

    X As Long
    Y As Long
End Type
Declare Function GetCursorPos Lib "user32.dll" (ByRef lpPoint As POINTAPI) As Long

Private Declare Sub sapiSleep Lib "kernel32" _
        Alias "Sleep" _
        (ByVal dwMilliseconds As Long)

Sub XC()
    Dim i As Integer
    Dim Pt As AcadPoint
    Dim P(2) As Double
    For i = 1 To 5
        sapiSleep (500)
        Dim cpos As POINTAPI
        GetCursorPos cpos
        P(0) = cpos.X: P(1) = cpos.Y
        Set Pt = ThisDrawing.ModelSpace.AddPoint(P)
End Sub
