AutoCAD Workbook for Architects and Engineers by Shannon R. Kyles
This practical step-by-step guide – designed for use at your computer – gives clear, compact instructions and self-test exercises to help you learn 2-D drawing using AutoCAD. The text is written for use on all AutoCAD releases from 2000 to 2008.
Computer-aided drawing is a skill that every student in architecture, engineering, the trades and construction must learn – and ideally at the computer, actually drawing things. AutoCAD is the most widely used package in the industry but existing teaching books tend to be too wordy and focus more on technical wizardry than on how to deliver actual finished drawings using industry drafting protocols.AutoCAD Workbook gives you the skills you need for the full range of drawing types using a wide variety of commands and sequences. Each chapter – or teaching module – contains a brief introduction to the commands, explaining exactly how each one can be used, and plenty of exercises to demonstrate how to produce everything from working drawings to presentation drawings; and orthographic projection to pictorial views. Examples include residential and commercial buildings for architects and designers; steel and concrete details for civil and structural engineering; mechanical parts and assemblies for mechanical engineering; and millwork and cabinet-making for woodworking applications.

Acknowledgments for AutoCAD Workbook
The workouts on this e-book went via a few years ofstudent testing each at Mohawk School and at McMaster College in Hamilton, Ontario, Canada.
For the reason that scholar version appeared in January 1993,there have been many optimistic recommendations and a lot constructive criticism.
I want to thank all my college students over the previous 27 years of educating CAD for working with me on the event ofnew proj ects, and for proofing tutorials and workouts.
I want to thank Brian McKibbin, Diego Gomez, and Trevor Garwood Jones for their generosity in letting me use their architectural designs to offer college students with up-to-date architectural work.
I might additionally prefer to thank Robert Deeks and Henry Brink for their assist in updating the mechanical engineering examples, and Ken Mercer for checking the accuracy ofthe wood-related drawings.
Lastly I want to thankCatriona Dixon and Madeleine Metcalfe from Blackwell Publishing for their efforts in sharpening this textual content.
