    Product Description:

    This book is your AutoCAD 2018 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 2018 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 2018 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 2018 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.

    The BeginningAutoCAD® 2018 Exercise Workbook is designed for classroom instruction and self-study alike, and is now suitable for both inch and metric users to accommodate readers around the world.  Each lesson starts with step-by-step instructions on how to master a particular task, followed by exercises designed for practicing the commands readers learned within that lesson.
          The 2018 version of the software boasts the new feature of being able to import SHX fonts when importing documents into AutoCAD.  With past versions, you could only import SHX fonts as objects that were included in the PDF, which meant that users could not alter the text in any way.  In this 2018 version of the software, the text will be fully editable – the same as TrueType text and fonts.  That’s a tremendous advantage for architects and designers, who use SHX fonts extensively in their drawings.
          Written by Cheryl Shrock and Steve Heather, two bestselling authors and official Beta Testers of AutoCAD® software, this is an invaluable resource for the thousands of students, designers, architects, and manufacturers who are just learning AutoCAD®, or getting up to speed with the latest version of the software.
     
    New and Improved Features
    • The ability to import SHX fonts when importing a PDF document into AutoCAD.
    • The ability to convert single rows of text into paragraphs.
    • All exercises will include metric equivalents alongside the original imperial (inch) measurements.
    • Additional new features just being released by AutoCAD to beta testers.
