9780131135376: AutoCAD 2004: A Building Approach, Book 1--Learning the Basics

For introductory courses in AutoCADA (R). The three books cover one year's coursework in 2D drafting-one for each quarter, or one and one-half books per semester. This series is particularly appropriate for community and technical college programs. This three-volume series of texts provides a user-friendly, step-by-step approach to learning AutoCADA (R) 2004. Using a modularized approach that groups related commands and operations together, these books focus on teaching the most efficient method of operation that enables the user to quickly become a productive CAD operator. With real-world application assignments at each module's conclusion and a final project that a new CAD operator might be required to do in an actual employment situation at the end of each book, this series reinforces hands-on study so that students are fully equipped with the practical skills required to succeed in this field. Book 1 covers material from opening the AutoCADA (R) program for the very first time to being able to efficiently use the basic commands to set up, draw, and print drawings.Book 2 builds on these concepts and skills, and helps students proceed to making and dimensioning multiview drawings. Book 3 concludes the series by teaching students to make and use their own personal drawing template complete with title block, general notes, and bill of materials.

From the Back Cover:

The purpose of this book and its companions, AutoCAD® 2004 A Building Approach, Book 1: Learning the Basics and AutoCAD® 2004: A Building Approach, Book 2: Taking Command, is to teach the fundamentals of AutoCAD® 2004 so you can easily make simple, professional engineering drawings. These books have been updated from the AutoCAD® 2002: A Building Approach series to include both the new and revised features found in AutoCAD® 2004.

This book uses the following features to help you build the basic foundation needed to become a successful CAD operator.

  • Provides a true step-by-step approach that guides you through the learning process in a friendly and effective way
  • Teaches you one efficient method, instead of overwhelming you with multiple ways to do the same thing, so you can quickly become a productive CAD operator
  • Takes you from opening the AutoCAD® program for the first time to creating your own personal AutoCAD® template and using it to generate professional engineering drawings
  • Teaches you to rise the basic drawing, editing, and text tools in an integrated approach that combines learning-related operations and commands together to make them easier to remember
  • Uses practical, real-world assignments in which you apply the concepts you learned to projects that new CAD operators can expect to see in their jobs
