When you’re in Casablanca, you go to Rick’s. When you need to learn AutoCAD, you go to George Omura’s Mastering AutoCAD books. It’s always been that way, and with AutoCAD 2007, it still is.
Omura has plenty of improvements to cover this time around, especially in 3D modeling, where -- in his words -- “AutoCAD’s 3D feature set has changed so extensively that using them almost makes AutoCAD feel like an entirely different program.” Of course, AutoCAD’s non-3D features are covered expertly here, as well -- including changes to modeling, visual styles, lights, materials, rendering, and animation.
As usual, Omura covers both AutoCAD and the “lighter” LT version, carefully calling attention to differences. And, if you haven’t sprung for AutoCAD 2007 yet, there’s a complete trial version on CD -- plus project files, symbols, parts libraries, bonus utilities, and five bonus chapters.
