Autodesk AutoCAD 2015 Fundamentals is designed to be used during instructor led training in an eight week course. It is an introductory level textbook intended for new AutoCAD 2015 users. This book covers all the fundamental skills necessary for effectively using AutoCAD and will provide a strong foundation for advancement. This textbook applies the use of AutoCAD as it pertains to mechanical drafting. Knowing how to draw a line in AutoCAD is not the same as understanding which line type is required when creating technical drawings. This text not only provides the necessary information to operate AutoCAD 2015 but also provides the skills to use AutoCAD as a tool to work proficiently as a drafter or designer.

Category:

Page: 380

View: 2536

Note: This book is a continuation of "AutoCAD/AutoCAD LT 2017 (R1): Fundamentals - Metric: Part 1." The objective of "AutoCAD(r)/AutoCAD LT(r) 2017 (R1): Fundamentals" is to enable students to create a basic 2D drawing in the AutoCAD software. Part 1 (chapters 1 to 20) covers the essential core topics for working with the AutoCAD software. The teaching strategy is to start with a few basic tools that enable the student to create and edit a simple drawing, and then continue to develop those tools. More advanced tools are introduced throughout the student guide. Not every command or option is covered, because the intent is to show the most essential tools and concepts, such as: Understanding the AutoCAD workspace and user interface. Using basic drawing, editing, and viewing tools. Organizing drawing objects on layers. Inserting reusable symbols (blocks). Preparing a layout to be plotted. Adding text, hatching, and dimensions. Part 2 (chapters 21 to 32) continues with more sophisticated techniques that extend your mastery of the software. For example, here you go beyond the basic skill of inserting a block to learning how to create blocks, and beyond the basic skill of using a template to understand the process of setting up a template. You learn skills such as: Using more advanced editing and construction techniques. Adding parametric constraints to objects. Creating local and global blocks. Setting up layers, styles, and templates. Using advanced plotting and publishing options. The "AutoCAD(r)/AutoCAD LT(r) 2017 (R1): Fundamentals" student guide is designed for those using AutoCAD(r) or AutoCAD LT(r) 2017 with a Windows operating system. This student guide is not designed for the AutoCAD for Mac software. Prerequisites A working knowledge of basic design/drafting procedures and terminology. A working knowledge of your operating system.

AutoCAD 2018 Tutorial First Level 2D Fundamentals

Author: Randy Shih

Publisher: SDC Publications

ISBN: 1630571229

Category: Computers

Page: 448

View: 6085

The primary goal of AutoCAD 2018 Tutorial First Level 2D Fundamentals is to introduce the aspects of Computer Aided Design and Drafting (CADD). This text is intended to be used as a training guide for students and professionals. This text covers AutoCAD 2018 and the lessons proceed in a pedagogical fashion to guide you from constructing basic shapes to making multiview drawings. This textbook contains a series of eleven tutorial style lessons designed to introduce beginning CAD users to AutoCAD 2018. It takes a hands-on, exercise-intensive approach to all the important 2D CAD techniques and concepts. This text is also helpful to AutoCAD users upgrading from a previous release of the software. The new improvements and key enhancements of the software are incorporated into the lessons. The 2D-CAD techniques and concepts discussed in this text are also designed to serve as the foundation to the more advanced parametric feature-based CAD packages such as Autodesk Inventor. The basic premise of this book is that the more designs you create using AutoCAD 2018, the better you learn the software. With this in mind, each lesson introduces a new set of commands and concepts, building on previous lessons. This book is intended to help readers establish a good basis for exploring and growing in the exciting field of Computer Aided Engineering.
