Overview

THE AUBIN ACADEMY MASTER SERIES: AUTOCAD MEP 2011 is the ideal book to provide readers with the skills needed to create construction documents with AutoCAD MEP that are reflective of industry standards and expectations. This book focuses on the rationale and practicality of the process of creating projects in MEP, rather than a series of independent commands and tools. Tools are introduced together in a focused process, with a strong emphasis on "why" as well as "how". The book and its exercises will provide readers with a clear sense of the value of the tools and a clear indication of each tool's potential. THE AUBIN ACADEMY MASTER SERIES: AUTOCAD MEP 2011 is a resource designed to shorten readers' learning curve, raise their comfort level and, most importantly, give them real life tested practical advice on using the software to create mechanical, electrical and plumbing designs and calculations.
