Preface to AutoCAD 2011 PDF Book

AutoCAD, developed by Autodesk Inc., is the most popular PC-CAD system available in the market. Today, over 7 million people use AutoCAD and other AutoCAD based design products.

100% of the Fortune 100 firms are Autodesk customers and 98% of the Fortune 500 firms are Autodesk customers.

AutoCAD’s open architecture has allowed third-party developers to write an application software that has significantly added to its popularity.

For example, the author of this book has developed a software package “SMLayout” for sheet metal products that generates a flat layout of various geometrical shapes such as transitions, intersections, cones, elbows, and tank heads.

Several companies in Canada and the United States are using this software package with AutoCAD to design and manufacture various products.

AutoCAD also facilitates customization that enables the users to increase their efficiency and improve their productivity.

The AutoCAD 2011: A Problem Solving Approach textbook contains a detailed explanation of AutoCAD 2011 commands and their applications to solve drafting and design problems.

Every AutoCAD command is thoroughly explained with the help of examples and illustrations. This makes it easy for the users to understand its function and application in the drawing.

After reading this textbook, you will be able to use AutoCAD commands to make a drawing, create text, create and insert symbols, dimension a drawing,

Apply constraints to sketches, create blocks and dynamic blocks, create 3D objects, surface objects, mesh objects and solid models, apply materials, and render a scene.

The book also covers basic drafting and design concepts that provide you with the essential drafting skills to solve the drawing problems in AutoCAD.

These include orthographic projections, dimensioning principles, sectioning, auxiliary views, and assembly drawings.

While going through this textbook, you will discover some new unique applications of AutoCAD that will have a significant effect on your drawings.

In addition, you will be able to understand why AutoCAD has become such a popular software package and an international standard in PC-CAD.
