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

Editorial Reviews

From The Critics
The purpose of this text/CD-ROM package is to instruct students in the application of AutoCAD to generate architectural residential drawings. The book begins with a review of essential elements of AutoCAD, then goes on to cover the conventions of producing architectural drawings and various drawing types for floor plans, elevations, sections, plot plans, and presentation drawings. Methods of 3D modeling are introduced in the final chapter. Learning features include concept summaries, tip boxes, command sequences, and exercises, quizes, and assignments, plus b&w illustrations and screen shots. The accompanying CD-ROM contains exercises and models. The book can be used with AutoCAD 2000i, AutoCAD 2000, or AutoCAD LT 2000 or 2000i. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)

Preface

Instant AutoCAD: Architectural Residential Drawing is the next text in the Instant AutoCAD series, and it continues with the tradition of delivering technical information in a quick and easy format. The purpose of this book is to instruct you in the methods of applying AutoCAD to generate architectural residential drawings.

The book starts with a review of the essential elements of AutoCAD, from layers to plotting, to refresh your memory. After that, it goes into the conventions of producing architectural drawings. From there you move on to the various drawing types in their own chapters—floor plans, elevations, sections, plot plans, and presentation drawings. The last chapter introduces you to the world of 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. AutoCAD LT does not support some of these advanced features.

The aim of this text is to give you information and hands-on practical experience so that you will be able to make use of this complex interface in the most efficient manner possible. It contains hundreds of figures to illustrate the various processes needed to move from a floor plan to a 3D model. For each new process concise theory is given, followed by a practical application to reinforce the newly obtained information.

The layout of the book is explained in Chapter 1, but it is essential to understand the various components that comprise a chapter. The first section in each chapter lists key ideas that will be covered in thatchapter. Throughout the chapter, you may see a variety of things: stylized print lifting an idea from the pages for emphasis, Tip boxes that stress a certain fact about the program, command sequences in very simple print that present the user's desired input in bold letters, and Hands-On Exercises to reinforce a new idea. At the end of each chapter you'll find a short answer test, a series of longer answer questions, and a number of assignments. Remember that the more you put into effort, study, and exercise completion, the more you'll take away from the experience in learning. It's up to you.

An accompanying CD-ROM contains numerous exercises and models, so you can learn in record time.

AutoCAD is a very complex and powerful program, but the experience of learning it shouldn't be dull or threatening. Rather, with lots of exercises, informal language, and friendly graphics it will be easier to learn. Some topics, those you need to perform the most basic operations, are explained more fully while others leave you to investigate on your own. We're sure this is the start of a journey that will bring wider horizons, lucrative results, and the pleasure that comes with mastery of a new tool.
