Take your AutoCAD skills to the next level - master its 3D modeling capabilities. Using the same 2D commands and tools you are accustomed to drafting with, you can actually construct the object you are designing. From that model, you can produce renderings and dimensioned, multi-view 2D drawings that will ensure accurate manufacture.

You get a complete and thoroughly illustrated explanation of all of the concepts and principles of AutoCAD's 3D features and you get experience using them with hands-on exercises. Detailed descriptions of every 3D AutoCAD command are included so you can:

  • Work with 3D wireframe, surface, and solid models
  • Build surface models and sculpted free-form models
  • Build solid models from profiles and primitives
  • Make complex, solid models with Boolean operations
  • Make conventional 2D drawings from 3D models
  • Render 3D Models using lights, surface opacities, and textures

The companion CD-ROM contains exercise materials, bitmap files that are useful in renderings, and a selection of AutoLISP programs and script files you can use to automate important AutoCAD functions.
