For freshman/sophomore-level courses in Basic Computer-Aided Design/Drafting, Basic Architectural Computer-Aided Design, and Commercial Architecture. Written specifically for architects, this text helps students learn AutoCAD by actually using it in planning and designing a wide variety of realistic situations. Using a non-technical writing style and hands-on PROMPT/RESPONSE tutorial approach, it takes students step-by-step through the creation of all of the drawings necessary for an architectural project - from floor plans, and elevations, through power and lighting plans, to isometric and three-dimensional drawings.
