Book Description

Principles and Practices An Integrated Approach to Engineering Graphics and AutoCAD 2016 combines an introduction to AutoCAD 2016 with a comprehensive coverage of engineering graphics principles. By adopting this textbook, you will no longer need to adopt separate CAD and engineering graphics books for your course. Not only will this unified approach give your course a smoother flow, your students will also save money on their textbooks. What's more, the tutorial exercises in this text have been expanded to cover the performance tasks found on the AutoCAD 2016 Certified User Examination.

The primary goal of Principles and Practices An Integrated Approach to Engineering Graphics and AutoCAD 2016 is to introduce the aspects of engineering graphics with the use of modern Computer Aided Design/Drafting software - AutoCAD 2016. This text is intended to be used as a training guide for students and professionals. The chapters in the text proceed in a pedagogical fashion to guide you from constructing basic shapes to making complete sets of engineering drawings. This text takes a hands-on, exercise-intensive approach to all the important concepts of Engineering Graphics, as well as in depth discussions of CAD techniques.

This textbook contains a series of twelve chapters, with detailed step-by-step tutorial-style lessons designed to introduce beginning CAD users to the graphic language used in all branches of technical industry. The CAD techniques and concepts discussed in the text are also designed to serve as the foundation to the more advanced parametric feature-based CAD packages, such as Autodesk Inventor.

Multimedia DVD

Each book comes bundled with a DVD containing video presentations. These videos cover the first three chapters and selected end-of-chapter exercises from throughout the book. Students see the AutoCAD 2016 interface, menu picks, and models that are created while a voice overlay explains the design activities.

Its a great book if you are learning on the Windows version. However when using a Mac, the step by step instructions are not always the same or straight forward.
