Overview

AutoCAD® in 3 Dimensions Using AutoCAD®2002 is an intensely visual look at 3-dimensional modeling. The text blends theory and practice in a way that both adds interest and is pedagogically sound. This leads to a greater student understanding of both the abstract concepts involved in mastering computer-aided drafting in 3 dimensions and in the application of that theory.

Some of the text's features include:

  • Over 600 illustrations to reinforce the theoretical concepts and lead to a clearer understanding of the basic principles
  • A full-color insert that displays images of the completed projects
  • A tear-out Quick Chart that identifies the toolbars used in 3D modeling
  • A revised look at solid modeling and its use in AutoCAD® 2002 (Section 4, Chapters 9-12)
  • A number of independent labs, including a commercial architecture project and a new mechanical solid modeling project (Section 7, Chapters 18-23)
  • A new section outlining two important application programs (Mechanical Desktop and 3D Studio VIZ®) that make even more creative use of AutoCAD® 2002's capabilities (Section 8, Chapters 24-25)
  • Labs at the end of each chapter that create an opportunity for students to explore newly introduced concepts, step by step, from the simple to the more complex
  • Chapter-end questions and assignments throughout the text that provide additional opportunities for reflection, practice, and, application of newly learned theory
  • Exciting 3D Viewpoint boxes that offer tips and hints in AutoCAD's complexities, effective for both the novice and the practiced uses

Also included in the text are sections specializing in the theory behind 3D modeling, such as how to prepare for 3D construction, the various kinds of 3D construction, and how to effectively enhance and present 3D models.

Editorial Reviews

From The Critics
This textbook provides instructions for using the AutoCAD 2002 program to draw three-dimensional surface and solid models, and for applying the concepts to architectural and mechanical design. The authors also discuss 3D libraries, parametric design, and preparing the models for final presentation. The 2002 edition adds chapters on Mechanical Desktop and 3D Studio VIZ. Annotation c.

Read an Excerpt

Our own interest in CAD began many years ago, when the phrase "technological revolution" was not yet a household phrase. It was our feeling then that computerized drawing would drastically change the field of drafting and design, but we couldn't have guessed the far-reaching implications of the changes. Today, drafting students—although still being introduced to work on the boards—are universally exposed to the computer early in the game and are being hired into the job market based on their familiarity with and skill in this area. And, as always, in this skill-intensive age, the more information we have, the better we are able to compete.

AutoCAD® in 3 Dimensions Using AutoCAD® 2002 was written to provide the information students need to compete in a competitive job market. The text covers AutoCAD 2002 and is a hands-on, lab- and exercise-intensive look at all the important concepts needed to draw in true 3D. It is our hope that even the beginner, who has had only an introduction to CAD, will be able to pick up this text, follow the activities and the labs, and turn to the book for answers to possible questions—leaving the instructor relatively question-free! Features

To aid student understanding of AutoCAD, the text includes the following pedagogical features:

  • More than 600 illustrations of 3D drawings help students visualize the concepts.
  • Part 7, Application Projects, includes six chapters (18-23) that act as independent labs with step-by-step guidelines. These labs cover architectural (residential and commercial), mechanical, structural, and civil projects.
  • Part 4, SolidModeling, gives the most thorough look at AutoCAD's Advanced Modeling Extension currently available.
  • Most chapters have a series of labs that move the student from simple to complex projects (all chapters except those in Section 7, where the chapters themselves are labs).
  • Chapters end with questions that test student understanding of chapter concepts.
  • Chapters also end with assignments that allow students to explore the chapter concepts interactively.
  • The text is accompanied by an Instructor's Manual that includes answers to chapter questions; suggestions for additional assignments and discussion topics; and chapter tests with a mix of multiple choice, true/false, matching, and short-answer questions.
Organization

The text is organized into eight parts covering all aspects of 3-dimensional AutoCAD:

  • Understanding 3D
  • Preparing for Construction of 3D Models
  • Construction of 3D Surface Models
  • Solid Modeling
  • Enhancing the Use of 3D
  • Presentation
  • Application Projects
  • Application Programs

There is no question that 3-dimensional modeling is here to stay. In what direction it Swill eventually take the reader and the authors is anyone's guess, but there is no question that it will be an exciting trip.

Preface

Our own interest in CAD began many years ago, when the phrase "technological revolution" was not yet a household phrase. It was our feeling then that computerized drawing would drastically change the field of drafting and design, but we couldn't have guessed the far-reaching implications of the changes. Today, drafting students—although still being introduced to work on the boards—are universally exposed to the computer early in the game and are being hired into the job market based on their familiarity with and skill in this area. And, as always, in this skill-intensive age, the more information we have, the better we are able to compete.

AutoCAD® in 3 Dimensions Using AutoCAD® 2002 was written to provide the information students need to compete in a competitive job market. The text covers AutoCAD 2002 and is a hands-on, lab- and exercise-intensive look at all the important concepts needed to draw in true 3D. It is our hope that even the beginner, who has had only an introduction to CAD, will be able to pick up this text, follow the activities and the labs, and turn to the book for answers to possible questions—leaving the instructor relatively question-free!
