This book guides the new AutoCAD user through the important features of the programming language to produce drawings quickly and accurately. It is intended to be an instructional book. It starts by explaining what AutoCAD is and how it fits into the general CAD field, and how it compares with other micro-based CAD systems. A variety of aspects are covered, from starting up, cursor display control, drawing and editing, to printing, plotting and increasing the productivity of AutoCAD. Particular guidance is given on potential pitfalls and how to avoid them. Worked examples throughout the text illustrate various commands and are coordinated to produce a recognisable drawing by the end of the book. The author is a lecturer in CAD at the Department of Civil and Structural Engineering at the University of Manchester Institute of Science and Technology. He has extensive experience in training students in the use of AutoCAD.
