Fundamentals of Drafting with AutoCAD® LT, the second edition of Drafting in a Computer Age, is an abundantly-illustrated instructional drafting book that teaches the fundamentals of engineering drawing through sketching, instrument drafting, and introductory CAD skills. This new edition introduces fundamental drafting skills first with freehand sketching and drawing instruments. Then, step-by-step instructions allow students to transfer their new skills to AutoCAD LT. Key terms are highlighted within the text and listed at the end of every chapter to reinforce important concepts and terminology. In addition, each chapter concludes with step-by-step AutoCAD instructions, Drafting Exercises, and Design Exercises, allowing users to practice their new skills both manually and using AutoCAD LT.
