Review

Unlike many AutoCAD competitors, this book covers only the basics and uses “mixed units” inches, meters, feet, kilometers, etc., to illustrate the myriad drawing and editing tools for this popular application. Use the DVD to set up drawing exercises and projects, see all of the book’s figures in color, and draw with a trial version of AutoCAD 2012. AutoCAD 2012 Beginning and Intermediate includes 50 exercises or “mini-workshops,” that complete small projects from concept through actual plotting. Solving all of the workshops will simulate the creation of two full projects (architectural and mechanical) from beginning to end, without overlooking any of the basic commands and functions in AutoCAD 2012.

BRIEF TABLE OF CONTENTS: 1: AutoCAD 2012 Basics. 2: Precise Drafting in AutoCAD 2012. 3: Modifying Commands. 4: Construction Commands. 5: Layers and Inquiry Commands. 6: Blocks and Hatch. 7: Text and Tables. 8: Dimensioning. 9: Plotting. 10: Projects.

Munir Hamad is an AutoDesk® Approved Instructor, certified AutoDesk AutoCAD Master, who has authored several AutoCAD titles and taught various levels of AutoCAD training.
