Organized around architectural projects, AutoCAD 2011 for Interior Design and Space Planning gives students an understanding of the commands and features of AutoCAD 2011 and demonstrates how to use the program to complete interior design and space planning projects. Building on fourteen years of updates, the book is appropriate for self-paced and lecture classes and covers both two-dimensional and three-dimensional drawings.
Throughout the exercises in this book, numbered steps in bold type provide instructions. Prompt and Response columns in the numbered steps provide step-by-step instructions for starting and completing a command. The Prompt column text repeats the AutoCAD prompt that appears in the Command: area of the AutoCAD screen. The Response column text shows your response to the AutoCAD prompt. Blue ruled lines separate the numbered steps from further discussion and explanation. Menus show you how to locate the command you are using.
Using numerous illustrations, the text captures the essence of this powerful program and the importance it plays in the interior design, architecture and space planning professions.
