This popular and always dependable AutoCAD reference-tutorial, the AutoCAD and AutoCAD LT Bible, will be revised by Ellen Finkelstein a long-time AutoCAD instructor and advocate. Because of its comprehensive coverage, it is very popular among both novice and experienced users. No features are left out. Even some of the employees at Autodesk keep this book at their workstations. "Even we need to look things up," writes an AutoCAD beta manager. "This book is the best one on AutoCAD that I have seen and I will recommend it to others." Coverage of AutoCAD LTa less expensive, "light" version of AutoCADis also incorporated throughout the book. Finkelstein starts the book with a Quick Start tutorial, so that even beginners will be doing exciting work with AutoCAD on their very first day. The chapters begin with the basics of creating drawings, using commands, and specifying coordinates. Finkelstein builds on this these chapters to cover more complex 2D and 3D drawing techniques, including using layers, creating dimensions, 3D coordinates, solids, and rendering. Finally, the book discusses advanced topics such as customization of commands and toolbars, and programming AutoCAD using AutoLISP and VBA. A DVD contains before and after drawings for each tutorial (all of these real-world drawings have been collected from AutoCAD professionals), bonus appendices, freeware and shareware programs, and a 30-day trial version of AutoCAD.
