DESCRIPTION BOOK:

Technical Drawing 101 covers topics ranging from the most basic, such as making freehand, multiview sketches of machine parts, to the advanced—creating an AutoCAD dimension style containing the style settings defined by the ASME Y14.5-2009 Dimensioning and Tolerancing standard. But unlike the massive technical drawing reference texts on the market, Technical Drawing 101 aims to present just the right mix of information and projects that can be reasonably covered by faculty, and assimilated by students, in one semester. Both mechanical and architectural projects are introduced to capture the interest of more students and to offer a broader appeal. The authors have also created extensive video training (120 videos, 15 hours total) that is included with every copy of the book. In these videos the authors start off by getting students comfortable with the user interface and demonstrating how to use many of AutoCAD's commands and features. The videos progress to more advanced topics where the authors walk students through completing several of the projects in the book. The CAD portion of the text incorporates drafting theory whenever possible and covers the basics of drawing setup (units, limits, and layers), the tools of the Draw, Modify, and Dimension toolbars, and the fundamentals of 3D modeling. By focusing on the fundamental building blocks of CAD, Technical Drawing 101 provides a solid foundation for students going on to learn advanced CAD concepts and techniques (paper space, viewports, xrefs, annotative scaling, etc.) in intermediate CAD courses. In recognition of the diverse career interests of our students, Technical Drawing 101 includes projects in which students create working drawings for a mechanical assembly as well as for an architectural project. We include architectural drawing because our experience has shown that many (if not most) first-semester drafting students are interested in careers in the architectural design field, and that a traditional technical drawing text, which focuses solely on mechanical drawing projects, holds little interest for these students. The multidisciplinary approach of this text and its supporting materials are intended to broaden the appeal of the curriculum and increase student interest and, it is hoped, future enrollments.

DESCRIPTION BOOK:

This book is your AutoCAD 2016 Instructor. The objective of this book is to provide you with extensive knowledge of AutoCAD, whether you are taking an instructor-led course or learning on your own. AutoCAD 2016 Instructor maintains the pedagogy and in-depth coverage that have always been the hallmark of the Leach texts. As the top-selling university textbook for almost a decade, the AutoCAD Instructor series continues to deliver broad coverage of AutoCAD in a structured, easy-to-comprehend manner. AutoCAD 2016 Instructor is command-oriented, just like AutoCAD. Chapters are structured around related commands, similar to the organization of AutoCAD’s menu system. The sequence of chapters starts with fundamental drawing commands and skills and then progresses to more elaborate procedures and specialized applications. The writing style introduces small pieces of information explained in simple form, and then builds on that knowledge to deliver more complex drawing strategies, requiring a synthesis of earlier concepts. Over 2000 figures illustrate the commands, features, and ideas. AutoCAD 2016 Instructor is an ideal reference guide, unlike tutorial-oriented books where specific information is hard to relocate. Because these chapters focus on related commands, and complete coverage for each command is given in one place, the commands, procedures, and applications are easy to reference. Tabbed pages help locate tables, lists, appendices, and the comprehensive index. What makes this book unique?In depth coverage of AutoCAD 2016 commands and featuresCommand Tables indicate where to locate and how to start each commandTIP markers in the margin provide important tips, notes, reminders, short-cuts and identify what's newComplete chapter exercises with many multi-chapter “REUSE” problemsWell suited for a two or three course sequence

Available for:

DESCRIPTION BOOK:

CAD Modeling Essentials in 3DEXPERIENCE 2016x Using CATIA Applications is written for those who want to learn the basics of CAD using the CATIA application in the 3DEXPERIENCE platform. This book uses a series of simple, easy to follow, tutorials to take you from a complete novice to an intermediate user. There is no secret that the best way to learn and master a software is by personal exploration which is strictly curiosity driven. Needless to say, although this may be the best strategy, it is extremely inefficient and very frustrating. The purpose of this book is to provide you with a solid understanding of how to use the most commonly used tools on a range of topics dealing with CAD. Once you have gained a proficient understanding of how to use the basic tools you will be much better prepared to further explore 3DEXPERIENCE on your own. The purpose of this book is to introduce you to the bare essentials of the 3DEXPERIENCE platform in the context of CAD functionalities using CATIA. It is by no means intended to be a comprehensive or completely organized approach to all the available features. The goal is to merely show you the ropes and leave further exploration to you. If you have previous experience using CATIA many of the features in the 3DEXPERIENCE CAD applications have been directly incorporated into the CATIA 3DEXPERIENCE application. This is particularly true in the case of Part Design and the Generative Shape Design currently available in CATIA V5. There have been significant changes in the Assembly Design application. If you are a first time user with no previous experience with CATIA V5, there is no reason to despair as the tutorial approach of this book will provide you the necessary skills to start using 3DEXPERIENCE with easy to follow tutorials.
