For freshman-level courses in Computer-Aided Design, and for sophomore-level courses in Electro-Mechanical Design, Technical Illustration, Architectural Drafting, Civil Drafting, and Electronic Drafting.

This versatile text can be used to teach AutoCAD in both lecture and self-paced classes, and is suitable for a wide range of different CAD courses. Application chapters make the book suitable for advanced classes. Unlike other texts-which teach isolated commands-this text enables students to relate commands to producing drawings, presenting topics in the order in which they are actually used. Numerous drawing, plotting and modeling exercises are provided throughout.
