 This fundamentals text introduces the reader to Autodesk's AutoCAD Architecture 2011 software. The book covers the Layer Manager, Design Center, Structural Members, Doors, Windows, and Walls.

By the end of the text, users should feel comfortable enough to create a standard model, and even know how to customize the interface for their own use. Readers are provided with in-depth coverage of toolbars, dialog boxes and commands. Educators will appreciate the quizzes and practice exam included in the text.
