Computer Aided Architecture and Design

Overview

This introduction to the general concepts of computer aided drafting and design is for architects, interior designers, facilities managers, engineers and space planners. It focuses on several leading MS-DOS based systems, but is sufficiently generic to interest anyone exploring microcomputer based CAD systems. Now the smallest design firms can afford to enter this field. In fact, it is evident that the long range survivors will be the automated design offices.

Overview

This introduction to the general concepts of computer aided drafting and design is for architects, interior designers, facilities managers, engineers and space planners. It focuses on several leading MS-DOS based systems, but is sufficiently generic to interest anyone exploring microcomputer based CAD systems. Now the smallest design firms can afford to enter this field. In fact, it is evident that the long range survivors will be the automated design offices. This book will allow all who are already sold on the idea of CAD for their profession to evaluate the real life world of microcomputer CAD before investing thousands of dollars and hundreds of hours in a system. The scope of this book is sufficiently broad to interest computerphiles and laypeople who want to learn about CAD, and also has sufficient depth to interest the expert. Written in a simple and straightforward manner, the book is based on a walk-through of an actual project from planning through final production documents of a small commercial building. It focuses on the design and construction of the building including plans, elevations, details, furnishings and finishes, and data base extraction files. The book also has a substantial appendix of technical data useful to both the beginning and advanced user, and actual examples to help the user become comfortable with microcomputer CAD potential. Sections on hardware and software alternatives are also provided.
