Solid Modelling with AutoCAD

Front Cover
Edward Arnold, 1995 - Computers - 212 pages
The author's first book Beginning AutoCAD takes the absolute beginner through a series of graded exercises which leave the student with a grasp of the main commands, and able to draw simple two dimensional diagrams. As powerful CAD packages become ever more widely used many trainees move on rapidly to generate three dimensional images and other design data from fairly simple plans. As long as the user is basically familiar with 2D AutoCAD this book will form an ideal introduction to solid modelling, and includes sections on shading and rendering surface detail. As with Bob McFarlane's other books the style of presentation assists learning at the keyboard with a minimum of teacher assistance.
