The primary goal of Principles and Practices: An Integrated Approach to Engineering Graphics and AutoCAD 2007 is to introduce the aspects of Engineering Graphics with the use of modern Computer Aided Design/Drafting software - AutoCAD 2007. 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 eleven 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 Mechanical Desktop and Autodesk Inventor.
