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, as well as programming and customizing using AutoCAD 2006. 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.
