Just starting out with AutoCAD 2007 or the “lighter” LT version? Here’s your gentlest path up the learning curve. David Frey teaches both versions of the software through a simple running project that’s directly relevant to any architect, civil, or structural engineer, and perfectly intuitive to anyone else.
Each section’s short, sweet, and well illustrated. You’ll tour AutoCAD’s interface, set up drawings, then master AutoCAD’s most widely used commands. Frey teaches proven drawing and layering strategies, and hands-on coverage of blocks, elevations, hatches, fills, text, dimensioning, and printing (all supported by downloadable sample project files). There’s even a sizable appendix on AutoCAD 2007’s revamped 3D features.
This is the perfect “first book” on AutoCAD. (Tip: When you’re ready for the perfect next book, check out George Omura’s Mastering AutoCAD 2007 and AutoCAD LT 2007, from the same legendary team of AutoCAD experts at Sybex.) Bill Camarda, from the June 2006 Read Only
