Master the complexities of the world's bestselling 2D and 3D software with Alf Yarwood's new Introduction to AutoCAD 2012. Ideally suited to new users of AutoCAD, this book will be a useful resource for drawing modules in both vocational and introductory undergraduate courses in engineering and construction.
Alf Yarwood has once again produced a comprehensive, step-by-step introduction to the latest release of AutoCAD. Covering all the basic principles and acting as an introduction to 2D drawing, it also contains extensive coverage of all 3D topics, including 3D solid modelling and rendering.
A fold-out list of frequently used keyboard shortcuts will help you perform actions quickly while working through the book, and an appendix of ribbon references clearly describes all the software tools that are used throughout the book.
Further education students in the UK will find this an invaluable textbook for City and Guilds AutoCAD qualifications as well as the relevant Computer Aided Drawing units of BTEC National Engineering, Higher National Engineering and Construction courses from Edexcel. Students enrolled in Foundation Degree courses containing CAD modules will also find this a very useful reference and learning aid.
Readers will also be able to visit a free companion website at:
www.introtoautocad2012.com where they will find worked solutions and AutoCAD drawing files of stages, and results for the exercises in this book, as well as further exercises and multiple-choice questions with answers.
