Key Features

  • Strips away complexities and reduces AutoCAD to easy-to-understand basic concepts
  • Explains "why" something is done, not just "how": the theory behind each concept or command is discussed prior to engaging AutoCAD so the student has a clear idea of what they are attempting to do
  • All basic commands are documented step-by-step:  what the user types in and how AutoCAD responds is spelled out in discrete and clear steps with numerous screen shots
  • Extensive supporting graphics (screen shots) and a summary with a self-test section and topic specific drawing exercises are included at the end of each chapter
  • Also available in a 2D+3D version with 10 additional chapters covering 3D concepts.  ISBN for the 2D+3D version is 978-012-387029-2
