Editorial Reviews
As practical as it is functional, this reader-friendly, hardbound text focuses on using AutoCAD as a drafting tool, helping students understand the foundations for the software's commands, learn basic skills, and progress into more advanced drawing areas such as dimensioning an object. Based on current ASME standards, it offers a non-discipline approach that is equally accessible to students of mechanics, architecture or electronics, and weaves many examples and exercises throughout to expose users to real-world problems and situations.* Provides optional discipline-specific workbooks to supplement this main text which teaches nondiscipline specific commands and their use. * Allows instructors to create their own assignments or choose a workbook featuring disciple-specific AutoCAD use and assignments based on the most current release information available. * Comes fully updated for AutoCAD release 13c4 for Windows 95/NT 4.0. * Starts students off with basic skills, then helps them learn how to use drawing commands and techniques to create complex geometry, select and edit existing objects, extract information from drawings for further analysis, automate the placement and creation of repetitive shapes, and more. * Concentrates on the 2D drafting functions of AutoCAD and does not sacrifice space on rarely used commands and features. * Divides material into 16 units to correspond with a typical 16-week semester; each unit contains: * An overview, outline listing the commands to be presented, and objectives which present specific skills students should master upon completion of the unit. * Numerous well-defined illustrations to help describe a specific function or command and clarify difficult concepts. * Iconed Skill Builder and For the Professional sections which provide tips and important notes about the material being covered, teach students how to be more productive, and enhance overall understanding. * Boxed tutorials that walk students through a particular command or concept. * 10 short answer questions and a generic assignment to help students hone their drafting skills. * Offers its own interactive web site complete with on-line quizzes, CAD news, CAD chat, direct author feedback, and related links to AutoCAD resources. * A workdisk in the text contains drawings to get students up and using AutoCAD quickly.
