An Introduction to AutoCAD 2002 provides a comprehensive introduction to this new version of the world's most widely used computer-aided drawing package. The book presents a practical and logical course of work to the reader, beginning at first principles and including a series of progressive exercises in two- and three-dimensional drawing. All the basic features of the package are covered, as are some of the key enhancements in AutoCAD 2002. A colour section of working screenshots illustrates how the package is used, and includes examples of 2D drawings and fully rendered 3D models. The special appendices covering printing and plotting, and the separate glossaries of AutoCAD tool names and general computing terms, make this a first-class introduction to AutoCAD 2002.
