Microcomputer Aided Design: For Architects and Designers
Shows how any designer can increase his or her repertoire of design tools by using CAD as an alternative to traditional drafting and design. Describes the latest applications of computer-aided-design (CAD) using microcomputers -- even shows how to customize professional CAD programs. Introduces architectural programming, symbolic programming with LISP, and employs versatile, attractive graphics. Provides a structured overview of CAD applications to line drawings, tracing, sketching, and scaling; generation of plans, sections, elevations, axonometrics, and perspectives; and manipulation of designs by means of transformations, repetition, and extrusions. Contains graphic and programming examples of the machine's and programs' capabilities.
