Editorial Reviews

The second of two textbooks<-->the first covering the basics<-->on the best known computer aided drafting software. Presumably, Shumaker and Madsen's developed it from and for their technical drafting courses at Clackamas Community College in Oregon.

The second discusses three-dimensional drafting, the latest version of the package, Internet access, and various customizing techniques. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (
