This is the eBook of the printed book and may not include any media, website access codes, or print supplements that may come packaged with the bound book. For introductory courses in AutoCAD By building on topics covered in Workplace Skills for Success with AutoCAD 2010: Basics, the layering approach leads students to the advanced topics covered in Workplace Skills for Success with AutoCAD 2010: Advanced. The text completes the discussion of the two-dimensional commands while branching into the world of three-dimensional space to construct various types of models. Coverage includes simple explanations of commands execution and related options, which leads to job skills. This empowers students to produce accurate, informational CAD documents and more useful electronic files at their jobs. Working in the CAD industry today requires more and more three-dimensional modeling skills to develop true engineering solutions. The sharing of information between engineering disciplines through three-dimensional modeling, as well as two-dimensional documentation, will continue to grow. Through the layering approach, students develop the knowledge foundation they need to move from traditional two-dimensional drafting to the world of three-dimensional modeling. With a focus on fundamental skill development, Workplace Skills for Success with AutoCAD 2010: Advanced is designed around the “Draw-Modify-Dimension-Print” cycle and focuses on the drawing skills needed to produce 2 dimensional drawings. Taking a layered learning approach, it builds skills gradually rather than overwhelming students immediately with numerous commands or procedures. Projects, assignments, examples and tutorials draw from the fields of architecture, mechanical engineering and civil engineering. Complete with an instructor’s resource disk and student companion website, the text emphasizes both knowledge and productivity as the means for being successful in the workplace. This second book in the AutoCAD Workskills Series continues the authors’ layered learning approach, focusing on workplace skills, not just a lengthy list of AutoCAD commands. Placing the emphasis on context and understanding, the bookis designed around the “Draw-Modify-Dimension-Print” cycle and presents topics in a production based order. This volume focuses on advanced topics in the 2D environment, 3D models and the methods of presenting the models through rendered images and simple animation. Continuing its work place orientation, its projects, assignments, examples and tutorials draw from the fields of architecture, mechanical engineering and civil engineering.

Up and Running with AutoCAD 2011

2D and 3D Drawing and Modeling
Author: Elliot Gindis
Publisher: Academic Press
ISBN: 9780123757180
Category: Computers
Page: 708
View: 7015
Up and Running with AutoCAD 2011: 2D and 3D Drawing and Modeling provides an introduction to the fundamental concepts of AutoCAD. These concepts have been distilled down to basic, easy to understand explanations for the benefit of beginner students. Each chapter explains the new concept or command and why it is important. Readers are given the chance to apply just-learned knowledge to a real-life exercise, drawing, or model. They can also test their knowledge with end-of-chapter quizzes and drawing exercises. The book is organized into three parts: Level 1, Level 2, and Level 3. Level 1 offers a wide breadth of knowledge on many topics. Its chapters comprise the complete essential knowledge set of an intermediate user. Students can then work on, if not necessarily set up and manage, moderate to complex drawings. Level 2 is meant for advanced users who are CAD managers, full-time AutoCAD draftspersons, architects, or self-employed and must do everything themselves. The goal here is depth, and several features not deemed critically important in Level 1 are revisited to explore additional advanced options. Also introduced are advanced topics necessary to set up and manage complex drawings. Level 3 is all about 3D. Solid knowledge of the previous two levels is highly recommended before starting these chapters. The 3D material covers all aspects of AutoCAD solid modeling, including lights and rendering. Strips away complexities, both real and perceived and reduces AutoCAD to easy-to-understand basic concepts Teaches only what is essential to operating AutoCAD first, thereby immediately building student confidence All basic commands are documented step-by-step, meaning that what the student needs to type in and how AutoCAD responds is all spelled out in discrete and clear steps with screen shots added as needed Using the author’s extensive multi-industry knowledge of what is important and widely used in practice versus what is not, the material is presented by immediately immersing the student in practical, critically essential knowledge, with no padding of text or filler material All concepts are explained first in theory, and only then is AutoCAD introduced and the actual “button pushing discussed. This is one of the key concepts in having students understand exactly what it is they are doing and why, before they do it
