Taking the reader step by step through the features of AutoCAD, Alf Yarwood provides a practical, structured course of work matched to the latest release of this software. Introducing first principles and the creation of 2D technical drawings in the first half of the book, the author goes on to demonstrate construction of 3D solid model drawings and rendering of 3D models. Now separated into a separate section, 3D modelling is addressed extensively, reflecting the major revision this use of AutoCAD has undergone as part of the latest software release. Worked examples and exercises are included throughout the text, to enable the reader to apply theory into real-world engineering practice, along with revision notes and exercises at the end of chapters for the reader to check their understanding of the material they have covered.

Introduction to AutoCAD 2007 contains hundreds of full-colour drawings and screen-shots to illustrate the stages within the design process. Readers can also visit a companion website and make use of an AutoCAD Gallery, where they can edit drawings from the exercises found within the text, and see solutions to all exercises featured in the book. Further exercises in 3D work are also available to download.

Details of enhancements to AutoCAD 2007 over previous releases are given in the text, along with illustration of how AutoCAD fits into the design process as a whole. Appendices with full glossaries of tools and abbreviations, and most frequently used set variables, are also included.

Suitable to new users of AutoCAD, or anyone wishing to update their knowledge from previous releases of the software, this book is also applicable to introductory level undergraduate courses and vocational courses in engineering and construction. Further Education students in the UK will find this an ideal textbook to cater for the relevant CAD units of BTEC Higher National and BTEC National Engineering schemes from Edexcel, and the City & Guilds 4351 and 4353 qualifications.
Readers can also visit a companion website where they will find answers to questions, worked solutions to exercises in the book, further exercises and AutoCAD drawing files of stages and results of the exercises for students to edit.
