—Amazon Customer Review
The world-renowned workbook that has been teaching AutoCAD® users for more than two decades is more engaging and relevant than ever. For those new to the world of AutoCAD, as well as those honing longtime skills, there is simply no better resource on the market than the Beginning AutoCAD® 2019 Exercise Workbook.
Industry-expert authors and professors Cheryl Shrock and Steve Heather introduce two novel features in AutoCAD 2019, including “Drawing Compare” and “Shared Views,” both of which facilitate a greater capacity for colleagues and clients to share and comment upon changes and additions to drawings in real time. All of the game-changing features of AutoCAD 2019 are highlighted throughout this new Edition, most significantly the inclusion of both METRIC and INCH measurements side-by-side on all exercises, as well as the phenomenal feature of SHX font importation during document upload, allowing for fully-editable text on PDF documents.
All exercises now include metric equivalents alongside the original imperial measurements.
“Drawing Compare” and “Shared Views,” making working with clients and 3rd parties infinitely easier.
New “CAD Tips” scattered throughout the book, providing shortcuts and suggestions from our expert author.
Additional new features being released by AutoCAD to beta testers.
