Overview

This self-paced tutorial helps interior designers and architects learn AutoCAD (Release 14) by actually using it in planning and designing a wide variety of realistic interiors. Using a non-technical writing style and hands-on PROMPT/RESPONSE tutorial approach, it takes readers step-by-step through the creation of all of the drawings necessary for a space planning project (Tenant Space Project) — from floor plans, elevations, and furniture planning, through power and lighting plans, to isometric and three-dimensional drawings. Four other projects — obtained from designers presently working in the field — are included as practice exercises. Contains 493 line drawings — most drawn 'to scale' — that provide readers with visual confirmation of the accuracy of their drawings. Additional tips, notes, and warnings alert readers to shortcuts, pitfalls, and special features of the software. For interior designers and architects.
