Overview

Discovering AutoCAD 2013 / Edition 1

Discovering AutoCAD 2013 presents a hands-on, activity-based approach to the use of AutoCAD as a drafting tool–complete with techniques, tips, shortcuts, and insights that improve efficiency. Topics and tasks are carefully grouped to lead students logically through the AutoCAD command set, with the level of difficulty increasing steadily as skills are acquired through experience and practice. Straightforward explanations focus on what is relevant to actual drawing procedures, and illustrations show exactly what to expect on the computer screen. This edition features Web-based exercises, projects, and new test questions for each chapter.
