Digital Drawing for Designers: A Visual Guide to AutoCAD 2011 Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

With AutoCAD 2011, Autodesk enhanced the user interface and improved many drawing functions including annotative dimensions and text. Neither simplistic nor exhaustive, this revised edition of Digital Drawing for Designers teaches the latest version of AutoCAD by relating to what architects and interior designers understand best: the visual world.
Beginning with the building blocks of drawing (lines, circles, and arcs), the book progresses through architectural graphic standards allowing students to create drawings and effectively communicate their design ideas. Advanced features - such as annotative dimensions, annotative blocks, express tools, and linking drawings (XREFs) - are also covered. Instructions are illustrated using language and concepts from manual drafting, creating a smooth transition to the digital environment for all designers. New learners will appreciate the step-by-step lessons and visual illustrations. Experienced design professionals can easily access material to refresh their knowledge. Clear, concise, and above all visual, this is the AutoCAD guide written for interior designers and architects.

Features:
- Updated for AutoCAD 2011: compatible with AutoCAD versions 14 through 2011
- Illustrations depicting tools, functions, the AutoCAD ribbon interface, and keyboard commands
- Practice exercises to reinforce each chapter's topics
- Clear explanation of drawing and printing with line weight
- Quick reference aids: command reference guide, index, and large-type page headers
- Companion website features downloads for each chapter, including exercises, plot styles, title blocks, drawing templates, and professional AutoCAD drawings

Instructor's Resources:
- Instructor's Guide includes course syllabi and chapter outlines, tips for teachers, and problems and assignments to suit the skill levels of both interior design students and new interior designers

Updated to include instruction from AutoCAD 2011, this book is compatible with AutoCAD versions 14 through 2011. Digital Drawing for Designers gives students the skills and ability to easily move between different versions of AutoCAD as they transition from school to practice. Since all of the instruction is through keyboard commands, the book works with any version of AutoCAD. While most other books reference button bars or menu drop-downs, the keyboard commands have not changed since the very first version of AutoCAD (with the exception of the new commands). Buttons and menu locations tend to change with most new releases. Sometimes the changes are small and sometimes they are very dramatic.
