For a first course in AutoCAD, an undergraduate design/industrial technology course in CAD Fundamentals, as well as an engineering/engineering technology course.

As practical as it is functional, this reader-friendly, hardbound text focuses on using AutoCAD as a drafting tool, helping students understand the foundations for the software's commands, learn basic skills, and progress into more advanced drawing areas such as dimensioning an object. Based on current standards, it offers a non-discipline approach that is equally accessible to students of mechanics, architecture or electronics, and weaves many examples and exercises throughout to expose users to real-world problems and situations.
