Debrah Standiford - Second Edition
This book uses the latest technology to address the
basic theories involved in solving descriptive geometry problems.
By incorporating the practical use of computer-aided
drafting and design software into the theories and solutions,
Descriptive Geometry: An Integrated Approach Using AutoCAD®
gives readers an edge that traditional descriptive geometry
textbooks don’t provide.
Structured to be compatible with various releases of
AutoCAD, it is ideal for anyone entering the work force.
A section has been added to the end of each chapter
in this book that covers the use of AutoLISP® programming to
solve a specific spatial problem. In addition, Autodesk Inventor®
has been incorporated into the solution of advanced problem-solving,
as well as flat pattern development (sheet metal).
This unique integration of current technology, plus
fundamental instruction in descriptive geometry principles make this
a valuable addition to every successful design-oriented
architectural and engineering education and training program.
