Taking the reader step-by-step through the features of AutoCAD, Alf
Yarwood provides a structured course of work matched to the latest
release of this software. Introducing first principles and the
creation of 2D technical drawings, the author goes on to
demonstrate construction of 3D solid model drawings and rendering
of 3D models. Worked examples and exercises are included throughout
the text, to enable the reader to apply theory into real-world
engineering practice, along with revision notes and exercises at
the end of chapters for the reader to check their understanding of
the material they have covered.Introduction to AutoCAD 2004
contains hundreds of drawings and screen-shots to illustrate the
stages within the design process. Readers can also visit a
companion website and make use of a full-colour AutoCAD Gallery,
where they can edit drawings from the exercises found within the
text, and see solutions to all exercises featured in the book.
Further exercises in 3D work are also available to download.Details
of enhancements to AutoCAD 2004 over previous releases are given in
the text, along with illustration of how AutoCAD fits into the
design process as a whole. Appendices with full glossaries of tools
and abbreviations, most frequently used set variables, and general
computer terms are also included.Suitable to new users of AutoCAD,
or anyone wishing to update their knowledge from previous releases
of the software, this book is also applicable to introductory level
undergraduate courses and vocational courses in engineering and
construction. Further Education students in the UK will find this
an ideal textbook to cater for the relevant CAD units of BTEC
Higher National and BTEC National Engineering schemes from Edexcel,
and the City & Guilds 4351 qualification.
