AutoCAD has long been the industry standard for digital drawing--but how do you decide which manual to use? Neither simplistic nor exhaustive, Digital Drawing for Designers teaches by relating to what architects and interior designers understand best: the visual world. Beginning with the building blocks of drawing (lines, circles, and arcs), students progress to the graphic standards that will allow them to create drawings and communicate their design ideas. Advanced features--such as dimensions, block, and linking drawings (XREFs)--are also covered. Instructions are conveyed using the language and concepts of manual drawing that all designers know, enabling them to translate them to the digital environment. New learners will appreciate the step-by-step lessons, and experienced design professionals can easily access material to refresh their knowledge. Clear, concise, and above all visual, this is the AutoCAD guide written with the real world of designing in mind.Seidler, Douglas is the author of 'Digital Drawing for Designers A Visual Guide to Autocad', published 2007 under ISBN 9781563675126 and ISBN 1563675129.
