1 - 2 weeks availability
Get "Up and Running" with AutoCAD using Gindis' combination of step-by-step instruction, examples, and insightful explanations. The emphasis from the beginning is on core concepts and practical application of AutoCAD in architecture, engineering and design. Equally useful in instructor-led classroom training, self-study, or as a professional reference, the book is written with the user in mind by a long-time AutoCAD professional and instructor based on what works in the industry and the classroom. It strips away complexities, both real and perceived, and reduces AutoCAD to easy-to-understand basic concepts. It teaches only what is essential to operating AutoCAD first, thereby immediately building student confidence. All basic commands are documented step-by-step; what the student needs to type in and how AutoCAD responds is spelled out in discrete and clear steps with screen shots added as needed.
New to this edition: new and improved features include better integration with the AutoCAD certification exams, new Spotlight On sections, an expanded appendix, and more content on programming; 3D portion of the book has been expanded and improved, with new exercises, new features and a redone section on rendering; and all discussions and screen shots have been updated for the current release of AutoCAD.
Elliot Gindis has used and taught AutoCAD in the New York City area since 1996, logging in well over 20,000 hours of screen time as a designer and consultant in a wide variety of architecture and engineering fields. From 1999 to 2008 he was on staff at the Pratt Institute of Design and as visiting instructor at the New York Institute of Technology (NYIT). He is currently president of Vertical Technologies Consulting and Design, an AutoCAD training firm, and has advised, consulted, or assisted more than 60 companies nationwide in using and optimizing AutoCAD.
