Principles and Practices: An Integrated Approach to Engineering Graphics and AutoCAD 2015 combines an introduction to AutoCAD 2015 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 2015 Certified User Examination. The primary goal of Principles and Practices: An Integrated Approach to Engineering Graphics and AutoCAD 2015 is to introduce the aspects of engineering graphics with the use of modern Computer Aided Design/Drafting software - AutoCAD 2015. 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.

Residential Design Using AutoCAD 2013 is an introductory level tutorial which uses residential design exercises as the means to teach you AutoCAD 2013. Each book comes with a DVD containing numerous video presentations in which the author shows and explains the many tools and techniques used in AutoCAD 2013. After completing this book you will have a well-rounded knowledge of Computer Aided Drafting that can be used in the industry and the satisfaction of having completed a set of residential drawings. This textbook starts with an optional section that covers basic hand sketching techniques and concepts intended to increase your ability to sketch design ideas by hand and to think three-dimensionally. The book then proceeds with a basic introduction to AutoCAD 2013. The first three chapters are intended to get you familiar with the user interface and many of the common menus and tools. Throughout the rest of the book you will design a residence through to its completion. Using step-by-step tutorial lessons, the residential project is followed through to create elevations, sections, details, etc. Throughout the project, new AutoCAD commands are covered at the appropriate time. Focus is placed on the most essential parts of a command rather than an exhaustive review of every sub-feature of a particular command. The Appendix contains a bonus section covering the fundamental principles of engineering graphics that relate to architecture.

A Tutorial Guide to AutoCAD 2013: 2D provides a step-by-step introduction to AutoCAD with commands presented in the context of each tutorial. With an organization that parallels an introductory engineering graphics course, author Shawna Lockhart guides readers through all the important commands and techniques to effectively create 2D drawings using AutoCAD 2013. After completing these seven tutorials you will have mastered the commands necessary to create 2D drawings, add dimensions, and print or plot your drawing using sound engineering drawing practices. In each lesson, the author provides step-by-step instructions with frequent illustrations showing exactly what appears on the AutoCAD screen. Later, individual steps are no longer provided, and readers are asked to apply what they've learned by completing sequences on their own. A carefully developed pedagogy reinforces this cumulative-learning approach and supports readers in becoming skilled AutoCAD users. A Tutorial Guide to AutoCAD 2013: 2D begins with three getting started chapters that include information to get readers of all levels prepared for the tutorials. The author includes tips that offer suggestions and warnings as you progress through the tutorials. Key Terms and Key Commands are listed at the end of each chapter to recap important topics and commands learned in each tutorial. A glossary of terms and a commands summary list reinforce the key commands used in the tutorials. Each chapter concludes with end of chapter problems providing challenges to a range of abilities in mechanical, electrical, and civil engineering as well as architectural problems.
