Editorial Reviews

From The Critics
Introduces AutoCAD LT 2002 commands and how to use them in solving drafting and design problems. Written for engineers and architects, the reference manual covers dimensioning a drawing, adding text, inserting symbols, creating 3D objects, and writing script files. Tickoo (engineering, Purdue University) also explains some customizing techniques, such as writing menus or defining linetypes and hatch patterns. Although step-by-step instructions are provided for each command, the manual is rather dense and best suited for intermediate AutoCAD users already familiar with the program. Annotation c.
