Introduction to AutoCAD 2017 for Civil Engineering Applications Details

• Combines the theory of engineering graphics and the use of AutoCAD 2017
• Designed specifically for civil engineering
• Uses clearly defined objectives and step-by-step instructions
• Features a new chapter covering the basics of free hand drawing

There is an old saying that an engineer describes every idea with a drawing. With the advances in computer technology and drawing software, it has never been easier, or more important, to learn computer aided design. To be effective, however, a drawing must accurately convey your intended meaning and that requires more then just knowing how to use software. This book provides you with a clear presentation of the theory of engineering graphics and the use of AutoCAD 2017 as they pertains to civil engineering applications. This combination of theory and its practical application will give you the knowledge and skills necessary to create designs that are accurate and easily understood by others.

Each chapter starts with a bulleted list of chapter objectives followed by an introduction. This provides you with a general overview of the material that will be covered in the chapter. The contents of each chapter are organized into well-defined sections that contain step-by-step instructions and illustrations to help you learn to use the various AutoCAD commands. More importantly, you will also learn how and why you would use these tools in real world projects.

This book has been categorized and ordered into eleven parts:

• Introduction to AutoCAD 2017 ribbon interface (1-7)
