AutoCAD 2009 and AutoCAD LT 2009: No experience Required

AutoCAD 2009 and AutoCAD LT 2009: No Experience Required is the perfect step-by-step introduction to the very latest version of the world's leading CAD software. It provides concise explanations and practical tutorials that clearly show you how to plan and develop a customized AutoCAD project. Follow the tutorials sequentially or just jump in at any chapter by downloading the drawing files from the companion website. Either way, you'll master AutoCAD features, get a thorough grounding in the essentials, and see quick results.

Completely revised and better than ever, this perennial bestseller includes comprehensive, up-to-date coverage of the latest AutoCAD features, such as the new Ribbon-based user interface, the ViewCube 3D navigation system, Quick View for drawings and layouts, the Quick Properties tool, and the Action Recorder. It also offers a glossary and a supporting website with project files.

  • Utilize the AutoCAD interface as you learn basic commands and set up your own drawings

  • Build on your skills with groups, elevations, hatches, and by using text and dynamic blocks in drawings

  • Develop sophisticated drawings as you graduate to dimensioning, creating external references, using tables, leveraging dynamic blocks, and mastering layouts and printing

  • Take advantage of the 3D capabilities that make AutoCAD 2009 the complete design tool

  • See the best ways to define the appearance of 3D drawings using different visual styles

  • Learn to clearly dimension and add notes to your drawings

  • Model in 3D (right side), then apply materials and render for photorealism (left)

Book News Annotation:

This introduction to AutoCAD software applications is designed to serve both novices and experts, allowing the reader to jump in at any point and take advantage of the drawing files by using the companion website. McFarland, who teaches AutoCAD, VIZ and 3ds Max courses at the university level, uses plenty of practical, step-by-step tutorials that employ plenty of graphics and sample screens, as opposed to technically-oriented text. This volume has been recently updated to reflect changes in the new AutoCAD 2009 and AutoCAD LT 2009 software packages. Annotation ©2008 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)

Synopsis:

Learning AutoCAD, like learning any complex computer program, requires a significant commitment of time and attention and, to some extent, a tolerance for repetition. AutoCAD 2009 and AutoCAD LT 2009: No Experience Requiredis a simple, yet engaging tutorial that takes readers through an entire project, designing a simple cabin from start to finish, while helping them become familiar with AutoCAD tools and techniques. As you work your way through the book, you'll familiarize yourself with the AutoCAD interface and basic commands, develop efficient drawing strategies, learn how to work with AutoCAD's major features, get comfortable with the 3D modeling tools and methods for applying materials, and ultimately, build a set of drawings that document your progress through the project that can be used later as reference material if you need to refresh a specific skill.

Synopsis:

Loaded with explanations, examples, and step-by-step instructions, AutoCAD 2009 and AutoCAD LT 2009is centered around a hands-on tutorial project that runs throughout the book and explores each phase of designing and drawing a summer cabin. This direct tutorial style is ideal for novices! You'll be introduced to the AutoCAD interface, basic commands, and creating drawings. You'll then progress to more advanced skills such as grouping, elevations, hatches, using text in drawings, dimensioning, external references, layouts and printing, and using 3D. This book is written by an Autodesk Authorized Author and published by an Autodesk Authorized Publisher.
