In the design and manufacturing industry, engineers frequently use the CAD (Computer Aided Design or Computer Aided Drafting) software for creating technical drawings. If you are trying to learn CAD, you should refer to this book.
AutoCAD is the most well-known CAD that supports both 2D and 3D formats. With this software, an engineer can easily create simple structures to complex ones. In order to help you learn AutoCAD with ease, this book is organised into general topics like “Drawing 2D objects” and “Creating 3D drawings”. Before you start, I would recommend that you go through chapter one on “Getting familiar with AutoCAD” thoroughly. This chapter provides an overview of AutoCAD’s layout (user interface). It will guide you though the AutoCAD window, the icons on the window, their functions and when to use them. You must be familiar with the content in chapter one before you move on to the following chapters.
Don’t worry if you are new to AutoCAD. I find that this book is written for beginners as it is easy to understand and you can follow the step-by-step instructions to create your own technical drawing.
