Overview

AutoCAD 2008 Instructor covers all features and capabilities of AutoCAD.

The chapters are structured in a practical pedagogical sequence beginning with instruction in general procedures for using the computer interface, setting up and creating drawings, and then progressing to advanced features such as dimensioning, special drawing applications and AutoCAD features, three-dimensional modeling and rendering, and software customization.
