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.
