Overview

This straightforward, visual-driven book introduces readers to the many features of AutoCAD while developing a basic understanding of design. Its comprehensive coverage is divided into three parts—an introduction to the fundamentals of AutoCAD Release 14 for Windows (Chapters 1-9); an explanation of many AutoCAD three-dimensional capabilities (Chapters 10-15); and a demonstration of how to apply these three-dimensional capabilities to design problems (Chapters 16-18). For practicing CAD designers and technicians as well as anyone interested in CAD, 3D design, and engineering.
