This is either a lecture or self-paced book on drawing that has enough
exercises for several semester-length courses using the AutoCAD® 2005 program.
Individual commands are explained as they are used to make a recognizable
drawing; not as isolated descriptions that have little connection to where they
are used. The exciting improved concepts from AutoCAD® 2004 such as gradient
hatch, and plotting rendered drawings directly from AutoCAD, are covered along
with commands new to AutoCAD 2005, including TABLE, SHEET SETS, and PALETTE
customizing. The new chapter with sketches that can be used for approximately
200 exercises is a welcome source of problems for the busy instructor. These
problems range from simple to complex.
