Overview

AutoCAD has become the industry standard graphics program for interior design and space planning; it is used to complete the many drawings that make up a design project. Many design firms have adopted AutoCAD as their standard because: ~It save time, ~Affliliated professions use it, and these firms need to be able to exchange disks in order to work on the same drawing, ~Their competitors are using it, and ~Their clients expect it. To be successful in design today, professionals must be proficient in the use of AutoCAD as it relates to interior design and space planning. This need is what led the authors to write AutoCAD for Interior Design and Space Planning.
