Unlike many AutoCAD competitors, this book covers all of the basics of Level 1 and Level 2 AutoCAD concepts. It uses "mixed units" e.g., inches, meters, feet, kilometers, etc., to illustrate the myriad drawing and editing tools for this popular application. Use the DVD to set up all the drawing lessons and projects in the text, see all of the book's figures in color, and draw with a trial version of AutoCAD 2010. This comprehensive edition includes 94 "workshops," that complete small projects from concept through actual plotting. Solving all of the workshops will simulate the creation of a "real life" project from beginning to end, without overlooking any of the basic commands and functions in AutoCAD 2010. Key features of the new comprehensive edition: Use all advanced 2D drafting commands; Learn the most important advanced techniques; Create Dynamic Blocks; Create, Edit, Extract & Block Attributes; Use External Reference for team collaboration; Learn all about Sheet Sets; Learn all about CAD Standards checking; Utilize the more advanced layer functions; Use Autodesk Design Review for Markups; Use the Markup Set Manager.
