I am trying to find books on AutoCAD but many of them work in a pure "Mastering Autocad and AutoCAD LT " by George Omura. This text is appropriate for Introductory and Intermediate AutoCAD courses. Combining two of the most comprehensive and accessible AutoCAD books, Paul. Challenge Exercise | Mechanical In this exercise, you use what you learned about annotation to add annotation to the drawing views. Note: The following.

The advantages of using the command line to control the program will become clear later. Drawing without them will result in misaligned entities and inaccurate lengths and positioning.


They can be accessed while using a command that asks the user to input a specific point, either directly at the command line, the OSNAP toolbox or by right clicking while holding the shift key. Model Space[ edit ] Model space is basically "the real world".

Everything is drawn at autocad 2010 books scale of one to one where meters, millimeters or inches are the preferred drawing units and all drawing components are positioned at the correct distances from each other, regardless of what sheet of paper autocad 2010 books may end up being printed on.

The drawings may also be positioned on a specific coordinate system, such as a national mapping grid, in autocad 2010 books to integrate accurately with other drawings. Layout Paper Space[ edit ] A typical Layout Space layout will consist of a standardized title block containing information about the autocad 2010 books drawing number, date completed etc.

This title block will be drawn to accurately fit on a standardized sheet of paper. For example, a sheet of ISO A1 measures mm by mm.

Thus, a title block for printing on such autocad 2010 books sheet may measure drawing units by It can then be printed out at a scale of 1 to 1, and will fit on the page nicely. Viewports[ edit ] All this is of course well and good, but how do we autocad 2010 books the actual drawing information from model space into this titleblock?

To do this, we utilize an item known as a viewport.

A viewport is a shape usually a rectangle but can be any shape that is drawn into paper autocad 2010 books. Think of them as a TV screen.

Inserting a viewport into paper spaces "places a autocad 2010 books into model space. You can change the angle of view, the scale factor and many other variables in the viewport settings. These changes only effect this one viewport.

This lets you have, for example, one large viewport of a building site at a scale of 1: It's the same building site, and it exists only once in model space, but it is represented twice in two different ways in the final drawing. Autocad 2010 books obvious advantage of this is any changes made in model space will instantly update autocad 2010 books every viewport, keeping all your printable drawings up to date.

Organizing Data[ edit ] An important thing to realize about AutoCAD is that it is not some kind of digital drawing board.

A lot of inexperienced users approach the program as if it was MS Paint for engineers, and end up creating horribly thought out and disorganized drawings that can cause no end of strife and frustration for those who autocad 2010 books later be required to work with the autocad 2010 books.

Not only can badly created drawings cause ulcers to other AutoCAD users, they make it a lot easier for design flaws to sneak into the process.

A little bit of pre-planning and some attention to good drafting autocad 2010 books might be the difference between a painless efficient project and a messy expensive rebuild. The most important thing to understand is that AutoCAD does not, strictly speaking, create "drawings" in the classic sense of the word.

The user should not consider themself to be making pictures or creating images. A much more useful and accurate way of thinking about an AutoCAD drawing file is as being a database full of information. The AutoCAD program allows the user to view and autocad 2010 books this information through a graphical interface.

Thus, when drawing a line between two points, realize that you are entering two coordinates into your database. So if you want a line that links the pointsand, then those should be the values you use. Do not, under any circumstances, just scribble down autocad 2010 books line in a place that "looks" right.

What kind of database user are you, to be inserting You autocad 2010 books use the "Object Snaps" feature to make this work properly, and there is no excuse for creating drawings that contain elements that look like they line up until you zoom in to micrometer scales and discover why those polylines weren't joining correctly or those hatches weren't applying properly etc.

It is through the layers window that all data is organised and controlled.
