Published by Wiley, this “Bible” brings veterans up to speed on the latest features and brings novices from the basics right up to programming in AutoLISP and VBA. Some Autodesk employees even keep a copy at their desks.
The Quick Start tutorial starts beginners with real-world work immediately. Following chapters cover the basics of creating drawings, complete 2D and 3D drawing techniques, using data in drawings, managing drawings, customization, and programming.
The book includes a DVD with before and after drawings for each tutorial, collected from AutoCAD professionals. The DVD also contains a 30-day trial version of AutoCAD 2008 and AutoCAD LT 2008, the entire text of the book in a searchable PDF format, and a selection of valuable add-on programs.
