Overview

This is the next book in the Instant AutoCAD® series, continuing the tradition of delivering technical information in a quick and easy format. With integrated Hands-On sessions to illustrate basic concepts and lots of questions, tests, and exercises to reinforce those basic concepts, it offers a look at architectural residential drawing using AutoCAD®, from floor plans to 3D modeling.

This textbook was written using AutoCAD® 2000i, but will work just as well using AutoCAD® 2000 or AutoCAD LT® 2000 or 2000i. The differences are minimal in regard to this book. The exception is 3D Modeling in Chapter 8;, where AutoCAD LT® does not support some of these advanced features.

The text contains a number of features that make the basic ideas more concrete and clear. These include:

  • a list of Key Concepts at the start of each chapter
  • an In a Nutshell conclusion of each chapter
  • brief Hands-On labs throughout each chapter to reinforce newly learned concepts
  • a Testing. . . testing. . . 1, 2, 3 section of fill-in-the-blank, true-false, multiple choice, and matching questions at the end of each chapter
  • a What? question section at the end of each chapter
  • a Let's Get Busy list of related assignments at each chapter end
  • a number of Tip boxes to introduce important ideas
  • font enlargement of key ideas
  • hundreds of drawings, menus, and icons to add clarity

An integrated CD-ROM Learning Assistant is included with this text. Itprovides:

  • hands-on practice for concepts presented in the text
  • models for the practice applications
