Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Create professional-quality building design projects using the newest release of Autodesk? Architectural Desktop! This concise manual focuses squarely on the rationale and practicality of the ADT (Architectural Desktop) process through lessons that emphasize "why" as well as "how" to help readers complete their projects successfully. The author, an experienced architect and instructor, discusses the features and functions of Release 4 in an easy-to-understand fashion that conveys a clear sense of its value, including each tool's potential. The resulting up-to-date resource is chock full of real-life, tested advice from a certified professional on the usage of the software that will help shorten the learning curve for readers and instill confidence.

Book News Annotation:

Rather than a reference, this text teaches Autodesk Architectural Desktop (ADT) by foregrounding its conceptual aspects. The extensive tutorials are directed at architects, interior designers, facilities planners, and students. With this audience in mind, the design development and construction documentation programs are both taught, while the mass modeling and other conceptual design tools are not. New ADT users with some AutoCAD experience will be the primary audience. Aubin is an applications engineer and trainer.
