Overview

This second book in the AutoCAD Workskills Series continues the authors’ layered learning approach, focusing on workplace skills, not just a lengthy list of AutoCAD commands. Placing the emphasis on context and understanding, the book is designed around the “Draw-Modify-Dimension-Print” cycle and presents topics in a production based order. This volume focuses on advanced topics in the 2D environment, 3D models and the methods of presenting the models through rendered images and simple animation. Continuing its work place orientation, its projects, assignments, examples and tutorials draw from the fields of architecture, mechanical engineering and civil engineering. Builds knowledge gradually so users gain the techniques needed to create drawings and then develop an advanced understanding of each area. Emphasizes commands based on workplace drawing experiences and gets the user producing and drawing more quickly by focusing on the Draw–Modify-Dimension-Print cycle. Focuses on more advanced drawing skillssuch as 3D models and methods of presentation.
