The Advanced text provides thorough instruction in 3D modeling, visualization, and AutoCAD customization. It also introduces students to programming AutoCAD. The teaching package includes more than 100 step-by-step exercises that provide hands-on reinforcement of topics covered in the text. The exercises are identified by specific references in the text and are delivered in the form of a Student Companion Web site. The electronic exercises permit the student to refer to the steps on-screen while working in AutoCAD.
  • Materials and rendering chapters in full color.
  • Chapter tests, available both in the book and on the Student Companion Web Site, serve to review commands and key AutoCAD concepts.
  • Many modeling and customizing problems supplement each chapter. Problems are presented as 3D illustrations, actual plotted drawings, and engineering sketches.
