9780123984081: Up and Running with AutoCAD 2013, Second Edition: 2D Drawing and Modeling

Get "Up and Running" with AutoCAD using Gindis' combination of step-by-step instruction, examples, and insightful explanations. The emphasis from the beginning is on core concepts and practical application of AutoCAD in architecture, engineering and design. Equally useful in instructor-led classroom training or self-study, the book is written with the student in mind by a long-time AutoCAD user and instructor based on what works in the industry and the classroom

  • Strips away complexities and reduces AutoCAD to easy-to-understand basic concepts
  • Explains "why" something is done, not just "how": the theory behind each concept or command is discussed prior to engaging AutoCAD so the student has a clear idea of what they are attempting to do
  • All basic commands are documented step-by-step:  what the user types in and how AutoCAD responds is spelled out in discrete and clear steps with numerous screen shots
  • Extensive supporting graphics (screen shots) and a summary with a self-test section and topic specific drawing exercises are included at the end of each chapter
  • Also available in a 2D+3D version with 10 additional chapters covering 3D concepts.  ISBN for the 2D+3D version is 978-012-387029-2

Product Description:

Up and Running with Autocad® 2013 started out as a set of classroom notes that outlined, in an easy to understand manner, exactly how AutoCAD is used and applied, in contrast to theoretical musings or clinical descriptions of the commands as found in other books. This book attempts to use experience and top-level knowledge to sort out what is important and what is secondary, and to explain the essentials in plain language.
This volume comprises 20 chapters, beginning with the AutoCAD fundamentals. The following chapters then focus on layers, colors, linetypes, and properties; text, Mtext, editing, and style; and hatch patterns; dimensions; blocks, Wblocks, dynamic blocks, groups, and purge. Other chapters cover polar, rectangular, and path arrays; basic printing and output; advanced linework; options, shortcuts, CUI, design center, and express tools; advanced design and file management tools; advanced output and pen settings; and isometric drawing. Each chapter in the book ends with a summary and some review questions to aid the reader in retaining essential concepts.
This book will be of interest to engineers, architects, and industrial designers.
