Basic Drafting Using Pencil Sketches and AutoCAD
For freshman-level courses in Technical Drafting, Basic Drafting, Engineering Graphics, and Beginning AutoCAD. Totally self-contained, this book teaches the fundamentals of drafting through the use of sketches on gridded paper done with triangles, a circle template, and a minimum of other tools and supplies (only a pencil and eraser are absolutely necessary). In addition, this text integrates a practical [and empowering] introduction to AutoCAD, providing sample drawings on a CD-ROM that are the same as, or similar to, the pencil sketches found in the text. **Published in an earlier version as Learning Basic Drafting Using Pencil Sketches and AutoCAD .
