Engineering Graphics with AutoCAD ? 2002 presents the standards and conventions of technical drawing that are in line with national standards and uses AutoCAD ? 2002 to apply these standards. Throughout the text, AutoCAD ? 2002 is the exclusive tool for presenting and applying these concepts (only Chapter 4 includes coverage of pencil and paper applications). The text begins with coverage of basic line drawing commands and progresses through more complex commands, ending with 3-dimensional and solid modeling. It also includes a solid modeling approach to descriptive geometry, with discussions on the true lengths of lines and shapes of planes, point and plane locations, and properties between lines and planes. Other features of this text include: A step-by-step format for presenting software commands Numerous illustrations and screen captures to highlight important information Hands-tin projects and exercises that allow users to practice, master, and apply the concepts presented in the text Solved exercises that reinforce the information covered in the chapter A CD of several 3-dimensional drawings referenced in the book is included with this text.Bethune, James D. is the author of 'Engineering Graphics With Autocad 2002' with ISBN 9780130610263 and ISBN 0130610267.
