AutoCAD 2016 Beginning and Intermediate

AutoCAD 2016 Beginning and Intermediate

This is the most comprehensive book about AutoCAD 2016 – 2D drafting on the
market. It is divided into three major parts:
Essentials: from Chapter one to Chapter ten. It assumes that the reader has no
previous experience in AutoCAD; hence it starts from scratch. Chapter ten contains
three projects – one architectural, and two mechanical using both Imperial and metric
Intermediate: from Chapter 11 to Chapter 18. It contains a deeper discussion on a
subject we touched on in the Essentials part, or a new advance feature.
Advanced: from Chapter 19 to Chapter 25. It discusses the most advanced features of
AutoCAD 2016.
If you don’t have any prior experience in AutoCAD this book is a perfect start, and
you can stop at the end of any part. But if you want to be a real power user of AutoCAD,
you should go through all the 25 chapters, solving all projects and practices.
