Beginning Autocad(r) 2021 Exercise Workbook (Paperback)
There's simply no better resource for anyone learning about and/or teaching CAD software than the Beginning AutoCAD Exercise Workbook. Veteran AutoCAD experts and former instructors Shrock and Heather have packed the 2021 version with a vastly improved interior design layout, 30 in-depth lessons with hundreds of useful practice exercises, all new screenshots, along with tried and true features such as "CAD tips" and side-by-side metric/inch measurements. The detailed, step-by-step format makes mastering AutoCAD much easier, in or out of a formal classroom. Readers can download the provided templates used for drawings in the book from the Industrial Press website. New and/or Improved Features in Beginning AutoCAD 2021
- Streamlined Trim and Extend command--Boundary edges are now selected automatically, making trimming or extending objects far more efficient.
- Revision Cloud enhancements--Users can use one value that measures the chord distance between the end points of each cloud arc to create more consistent revision clouds.
- Measure Geometry: Quick Measure--The area and perimeter of closed objects (and even multiple objects) can be measured with a simple click, all in one go.
- Beginning AutoCAD 2021 contains more content than ever before, yet has been redesigned and reduced by more than 100 pages, making it more manageable to read and carry.
