Whether you’re just starting out with AutoCAD 2005 or the “lighter” LT version, AutoCAD 2005 and AutoCAD LT 2005: No Experience Required offers a very gentle path up the learning curve.
Writing for architects and civil or structural engineers, David Frey teaches both versions of the software through a simple running project. (It’s simple enough so that folks in other fields can easily use it, too.)
You’ll start by touring the AutoCAD interface, setting up a drawing, and mastering AutoCAD’s most widely used commands. Frey introduces drawing strategies that help novices stay out of trouble and shows how to use layers to organize drawings more efficiently. There’s hands-on coverage of blocks, elevations, hatches, fills, text, and dimensioning -- plus just about all you’ll ever want to know about printing. Bill Camarda
