As practical as it's functional, this reader-friendly, hardbound book focuses on using AutoCAD as a drafting tool. It progresses into an AutoCAD book with a practical approach that emphasizes 2D techniques, offers discipline specific workbooks, and a website. The book will help readers understand the foundations for the software's commands, learn basic skills, and more advanced drawing areas such as dimensioning an object. Based on current standards, it offers a non-discipline approach that is equally accessible to the readers/students of mechanics, architecture or electronics, and weaves many examples and exercises throughout to expose users to real-world problems and situations. Appropriate for readers interested in design/industrial technology or engineering technology.
