 Autodesk AutoCAD 2011 Fundamentals is designed to be used during instructor led training in a eight week course. It is an introductory level textbook intended for new AutoCAD 2011 users. This book covers all the fundamental skills necessary for effectively using AutoCAD and will provide a strong foundation for advancement.

This textbook applies the use of AutoCAD as it pertains to mechanical drafting. Knowing how to draw a line in AutoCAD is not the same as understanding which line type is required when creating technical drawings. This text not only provides the necessary information to operate AutoCAD 2011 but also provides the skills to use AutoCAD as a tool to work proficiently as a mechanical drafter or designer.
