This thoroughly revised and updated edition teaches AutoCAD using explanations, examples, instructions, and hands-on projects for both AutoCAD and AutoCAD LT. This detailed resource works as both a tutorial and stand-alone reference. It introduces the basics of the interface and drafting tools; explores skills such as using hatches, fields, and tables; details such advanced skills as attributes, dynamic blocks, drawing curves, and using solid fills; explains 3D modeling and imaging; and discusses customization and integration.
George Omura's engaging writing style makes this reference the perfect reference and tutorial for both novice and experienced CAD users.
