From drawing plans for the latest car to a dream house, AutoCAD is the
drafting and drawing program of choice. If you have a working knowledge of
AutoCAD, this book with CD-ROM will help you advance to the program's next level
-- its remarkably powerful capabilities in 3D.
Leading you step by step toward mastering 3D design and drafting with AutoCAD
2000, John E. Wilson fully explains the concepts and principles of the program's
3D features, and provides useful illustrations, examples, and hands-on
exercises. The book describes every 3D command in detail, reaching beyond
AutoCAD's on-screen help and program manuals to guide you through working with
3D wireframe models in 3D space; building surface models; solid modeling; 2D
output and paper space; and renderings from 3D models.
With a CD-ROM of corresponding utilities, exercises, and sample files -- plus
bonus files -- 3D Modeling in AutoCAD: Creating and Using 3D Models in AutoCAD
2000 is your key to the world of 3D wizardry.
