AutoCAD is the most widely used computer-aided design (CAD) software in the world and Windows is the leading graphical user interface.

An Introduction to AutoCAD Release 14 is an introductory text written primarily for engineering students and those beginning to use the software for the construction of technical drawings.
The text is illustrated throughout with screen dumps and example AutoCAD drawings, together with a set of colour plates which demonstrate clearly the use and full capabilities of the package.
