AutoCAD is the most widely used computer-aided design (CAD) software in the world and Windows is the leading graphical user interface. The latest version of AutoCAD, Release 14, runs under Windows 95 or Windows NT, and includes many enhancements such as: a new startup 'wizard', improved polylines and hatch facilities, new dialogue boxes, right-click shortcuts, improved pull-down menus, enhanced text facilities and improved rendering without having to switch to AutoVision. An Introduction to AutoCAD Release 14 is an introductory text written primarily for engineering students and those beginning to use the software for the construction of technical drawings. The text is illustrated throughout with screen dumps and example AutoCAD drawings, together with a set of colour plates which demonstrate clearly the use and full capabilities of the package. This essential book provides unrivalled coverage of Release 14 suitable for students undertaking BTEC and City & Guilds engineering courses where CAD is taught, and for higher education students of first year courses in engineering, building and architecture. Those in industry who wish to learn how to produce drawings using AutoCAD Release 14 will welcome the friendly text and excellent use of diagrams.
