Description

Ideal for the non-technical reader, this clearly written, detail-oriented guide skillfully combines a complete study of drafting basics with an introduction to AutoCAD to give architects and interior designers the tools they need to communicate their ideas. Provides a strong working knowledge of the fundamentals of both manual and computer-aided drafting with full coverage of all major drafting concepts, and contains many clearly explained examples that reflect a variety of disciplines (i.e., architectural, interiors, civil, landscaping, mechanical and electrical), with many cross-referenced between board drafting and AutoCAD. Divides material into three stand-alone sections—the basics of manual drafting (i.e., the tools and terminology of drafting, manual drafting skills, drawing basic shapes and patterns); an introduction to architectural concepts (i.e., architectural and interior drawing, and pictorial drawing and sketching); and a beginner's guide to AutoCAD (i.e., computer basics, creating simple geometric entities, AutoCAD's coordinate system, drawing aids, view modification, editing and altering entities, dimensioning and tolerancing, and more). Includes appendices covering file management and plotting. For architects, interior designers, and civil engineers.
