Everything you need to create spectacular drawings, designs, and three-dimensional models using AutoCAD

At last, an AutoCAD handbook designed exclusively to address the special needs of mechanical engineers, designers, and CAD managers. You'll get detailed information on 3-D drawing techniques, networking AutoCAD, project management, creating custom menus, layering standards, prototype drawings, and much more.

You'll find out how to:

  • Construct views and dimension objects
  • Create and use layers
  • Keep file sizes small so drawings remain easy to manipulate
  • Check parts in drawings for clearance
  • Create drawings for parts that will be made by injection molding
  • Construct 3-D models using AutoCAD commands
  • Display multiple, independently scaled, model views on a single plotted page
  • Use Designer and AutoSurf applications to construct parametric solid and surface models of parts

Whether you're a mechanical engineer, a draftsman, a mechanical designer, or a CAD manager, this book will save you time and increase your productivity.
