This richly illustrated book arms interior design professionals with solid, practical know-how and step-by-step AutoCAD instruction. It is organized around a series of tasks and combines explanations of AutoCAD commands with practical systematic drafting procedures. This edition introduces Architectural Desktop (so users can learn the difference between the two systems), includes a new design project, and offers a new chapter on the reflected ceiling plan and schedule. Its emphasis on professional applications and balance of coverage leaves readers with a set of skills that can be used immediately in the profession. Emphasizes what an interior designer can do with AutoCAD, rather than on just what AutoCAD can do. A balance of 2D and 3D coverage discusses simple and more advanced techniques in a meaningful and manageable way. Explains AutoCAD commands in the context of interior design, making material more relevant to the design professional.
