Cheng's newest self-paced AutoCAD tutorial provides a practical step-by-step introduction to 3D computer-aided design drawing using AutoCAD Release 14. The latest version of AUTOCAD, RELEASE 14 is exclusively Windows-based (versus DOS/Windows), and has increased 3D capability. Cheng's guide reflects these latest changes, and also includes instruction on creating 3D solid objects. The book presents AutoCAD commands in the context of hands-on exercises that guide first-time users through entity creation, editing, and manipulation; creation of engineering drawings; preparation, dimensioning, and plotting of hard-copy documents. This book starts from basic - then gradually advances to more complicated - 3D components, using self-paced mini-projects in its illustration. A summary of all AutoCAD commands used in the exercises is found in the last chapter, making this book a useful working reference for professional engineers and designers.
