Perfect for both beginning and intermediate students, Architectural Drafting Using AutoCAD provides thorough coverage of architectural drafting using AutoCAD. This text begins by presenting basic AutoCAD commands, to give beginning users a strong introduction to the software and provide experienced AutoCAD users with a review. The text then focuses on using AutoCAD to prepare architectural drawings using common architectural drafting conventions.
Promote active learning and constructive interchange among students with these architecturally-based assignments that present a practical, hands-on approach to understanding basic 2-D AutoCAD commands and operations. This series of 17 self-instructional, skill-building assignments challenges students to master specific and selected AutoCAD commands, operations, and formats necessary to draw and plot typical 2-D residential and commercial architectural drawings. Students progress step-by-step through the assignments, applying previous lessons while they expand their skills with each new exercise. Assignments are designed to span one semester of work and are grouped into two sections: the Georgian House introduces the range of basic 2-D commands needed to "build" a simple furnished floor plan and exterior elevation, and the Furness Brownstone presents more complex plan views and exterior elevations.
