AutoCAD 2004 for Interior Design and Space Planning Using AutoCAD 2004
For courses in Interior Design, Space Planning, Computer-Aided Design, Computer Graphics and Architectural Graphics.This manual teaches users how to make architectural drawings using a computer and the AutoCAD 2004 program. This easy-to-understand book employs the prompt-response format in beginning exercises of all chapters to allow users to learn commands in a drawing situation. The text then provides exercises so users can apply the commands on their own. New features of AutoCAD Release 2004 are described-e.g.: redesigned AutoCAD Design Center, modeless dialog boxes, new gradient hatch patterns for rendering isometric and two-dimensional drawings, and easy printing and plotting of 3-D rendered models.
