9781585037223: Tutorial Guide to AutoCAD 2013: 2D

A Tutorial Guide to AutoCAD 2013: 2D provides a step-by-step introduction to AutoCAD with commands presented in the context of each tutorial. With an organization that parallels an introductory engineering graphics course, author Shawna Lockhart guides readers through all the important commands and techniques to effectively create 2D drawings using AutoCAD 2013. After completing these seven tutorials you will have mastered the commands necessary to create 2D drawings, add dimensions, and print or plot your drawing using sound engineering drawing practices.

In each lesson, the author provides step-by-step instructions with frequent illustrations showing exactly what appears on the AutoCAD screen. Later, individual steps are no longer provided, and readers are asked to apply what they've learned by completing sequences on their own. A carefully developed pedagogy reinforces this cumulative-learning approach and supports readers in becoming skilled AutoCAD users.

A Tutorial Guide to AutoCAD 2013: 2D begins with three getting started chapters that include information to get readers of all levels prepared for the tutorials. The author includes tips that offer suggestions and warnings as you progress through the tutorials. Key Terms and Key Commands are listed at the end of each chapter to recap important topics and commands learned in each tutorial. A glossary of terms and a commands summary list reinforce the key commands used in the tutorials. Each chapter concludes with end of chapter problems providing challenges to a range of abilities in mechanical, electrical, and civil engineering as well as architectural problems.
