This second volume in the Using AutoCAD set explains how to use all the commands required for working with multiple drawings, creating 3D designs and renderings, and programming and customizing using AutoCAD 2005. Intended for intermediate-to-advanced users, this book's tutorial-style approach takes readers in-depth through every option of the featured AutoCAD commands. Readers are then given opportunities to practice and apply the commands to the principles of advanced drafting, 3D design, externally referenced drawings, layouts, and AutoLISP. Plentiful drawing problems and end-of-chapter review questions give users a hands-on experience that will speed them to proficiency using Autodesk's newest release for design and drafting.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
New versions of AutoCAD appear like clockwork (see Computer Media, LJ 3/1/04), and all medium and larger public libraries and academic libraries serving drafting, design, or similar programs should update their guides. Intended for classroom use or self-study, Problem-Solving covers all aspects of using AutoCAD, from starting a new drawing to customizing menus. Each chapter includes a self-evaluation test and review questions, and additional exercises and tutorials are available online. Nicely thorough, but a bit pricey for most libraries, so purchase where demand warrants or where AutoCAD courses are offered. Quick Reference, though clear and concise, may be more useful as a text for individuals than as a library purchase. This richly illustrated alphabetical guide explains all commands in AutoCAD 2005 and earlier versions; optional for larger libraries. Appropriate for self-study, both volumes of Using AutoCAD 2005 contain CDs with tutorial files and exercises, plus chapter review questions and step-by-step tutorials. Basics covers getting started with the software and doing simple 2-D drafting, while Advanced tackles working with multiple drawings, programming and customization, and 3-D design. Features new to v. 2004 and 2005 are highlighted in the text, explanations are clear, and generous illustrations demonstrate commands. Both are recommended for all libraries.
