Overview

Using a non-technical writing style and hands-on PROMPT/RESPONSE tutorial approach this text helps readers learn AutoCAD by actually using it in planning and designing a wide variety of realistic interiors. The text takes readers step-by-step through the creation of all of the drawings necessary for a space planning project (Tenant Space Project) — from floor plans, elevations, and furniture planning, through power and lighting plans, to isometric and three-dimensional drawings. Includes new Startup Dialog Box, using 'Start from Scratch,' Templates, and Wizards. Uses a Computer PROMPT/User RESPONSE format that leads readers through each new AutoCAD command which allows the text to be used as either a self-paced tutorial or in a lecture-lab situation. Features exercises that are geared to interior designers and space planners. Features Margin Menus that show how to locate each new AutoCAD command within the AutoCAD menus and toolbars. Contains Learning Objectives and Review Questions in every chapter. Includes both fill-in-the-blank and multiple-choice items. Appropriate for interior designers.
