AUTOCAD 2006 Companion / Edition 1

AutoCAD 2006 Companion is designed to teach AutoCAD 2006 in a one-semester course through its coverage of solid modeling and 2-D design and drafting essentials. AutoCAD 2006 Companion can be used on its own or as a companion to other graphics books, such as Fundamentals of Graphics Communication or Technical Graphics Communication by Bertoline and Wiebe. Its engineering, architecture, design, construction, and manufacturing examples makes this textbook suitable for a wide range of students.

Developed from teaching techniques used in an authorized AutoCAD Training Center and through instruction at engineering colleges, AutoCAD 2006 Companion is command-oriented with chapters centered on groups of related commands. This feature makes the text very effective as a reference tool. The chapters are structured in a practical and pedagogical sequence beginning with instruction in general procedures for using the user interface, setting up and creating drawings, and progressing to advanced features such as dimensioning, special drawing applications and AutoCAD features, and solid modeling construction and editing.
