Overview

The AutoCAD ® Book: Drawing, Modeling, and Applications Using AutoCAD ® 2002 provides a hands-on approach to concepts of AutoCAD® 2002, allowing the users to start drawing early on in the text. The text begins with an introduction to the basic concepts of AutoCAD®, its on-screen appearance and interface, and ways to solve common problems. It then moves from basic AutoCAD® commands to advanced 3-Dimensional activities. The text ends with a series of application chapters, with activities for architectural, civil, electronic, and electromechanical drawing and for technical illustrating.

The text includes the following features to help users learn, practice, and master AutoCAD® skills:

  • An easy-to-fallow "prom ptiresponse" format that takes users step by step through each new command/activity
  • Margin notes that help new AutoCAD® users become more comfortable with the software
  • Practice exercises in every chapter
  • Real-world applications for a variety of fields
  • Numerous figures, screen captures, and illustrations
  • Review questions at the end of every chapter

Read an Excerpt

The popularity of AutoCAD has generated numerous books and manuals—most of which are similar to the reference manual that accompanies the AutoCAD software. However, AutoCAD is difficult to learn using just a reference manual or a book structured like one. The AutoCAD ® Book: Drawing, Modeling, and Applications Using AutoCAD 2002® was written in response to the need for a book with an easy-to-follow format designed for people with various educational backgrounds and at differing levels of computer experience. It was developed by people who teach AutoCAD in the classroom setting and who use AutoCAD to produce drawings for manufacturing and construction.

Using the "hands-on" approach to the AutoCAD computer package is the fastest and most effective method of learning to use this powerful and exciting drawing tool. Therefore, this text teaches students to use AutoCAD by drawing with it.

All the material in this textbook has been carefully class-tested. People who have used the book have learned quickly to become productive with AutoCAD, and they are pleased with the clarity of the presentation and the fact that it assumes no familiarity with computers. Many have even been inspired to create menus and customize AutoCAD for their specific situations.

FEATURES

This new edition covers AutoCAD 2002. Some of the features of this edition are

  • Complete coverage of the features of AutoCAD 2002.
  • Update of "Tips," "Cautions," and "Notes" in the page margins. Each of these features is designed to help the new AutoCAD user past the stumbling blocks.
  • Illustrations of pop-down menus, dialog boxes, and toolbars for AutoCAD 2002.
  • 3-D tutorial exercises, including an introduction to advanced modeling.
  • Introduction to AutoCAD's DesignCenter.
  • Application chapters for architectural, civil, electronic and electromechanical drawing, and technical illustrating.
  • New plotting techniques.
  • Examination of new "etransmit" and "publish to Web" features.

Part II (Chapters 5-17)

These drawing chapters show readers step by step how to produce several different types of drawings, including orthographic, sectional, isometric, 3-D, and plan views. Dimensioning, tolerancing, geometric constructions, attributes, block diagrams, and printing are also covered in these chapters. Chapter 5 describes how to use raster images in AutoCAD drawings. Chapter 17 describes how to customize AutoCAD menus and toolbars, and introduces AutoLISP

    GREAT BOOK & AS GOOD AS THE COURSE

    I took an Internet Course, without class room interaction, and had not problems understanding the text. I believe that if I did not, seek the college credit I could have used the book to enhance my skill to use AutoCad, without instruction. Great Book, Great instructor - Mr. Kirkpatrick was my Internet Instructor at Eastfield College, Mesquite Texas.
