With AutoCAD 2011, Autodesk enhanced the user interface and improved many drawing functions including annotative dimensions and text. Neither simplistic nor exhaustive, this revised edition of Digital Drawing for Designers teaches the latest version of AutoCAD by relating to what architects and interior designers understand best: the visual world. Beginning with the building blocks of drawing (lines, circles, and arcs), the book progresses through architectural graphic standards allowing students to create drawings and effectively communicate their design ideas. Advanced features - such as annotative dimensions, annotative blocks, express tools, and linking drawings (XREFs) - are also covered. Instructions are illustrated using language and concepts from manual drafting, creating a smooth transition to the digital environment for all designers. New learners will appreciate the step-by-step lessons and visual illustrations. Experienced design professionals can easily access material to refresh their knowledge. Clear, concise, and above all visual, this is the AutoCAD guide written for interior designers and architects.
