Note: This book is a continuation of "AutoCAD/AutoCAD LT 2017 (R1): Fundamentals - Mixed Units: Part 1." The objective of "AutoCAD(r)/AutoCAD LT(r) 2017 (R1): Fundamentals" is to enable students to create a basic 2D drawing in the AutoCAD software. Part 1 (chapters 1 to 20) covers the essential core topics for working with the AutoCAD software. The teaching strategy is to start with a few basic tools that enable the student to create and edit a simple drawing, and then continue to develop those tools. More advanced tools are introduced throughout the student guide. Not every command or option is covered, because the intent is to show the most essential tools and concepts, such as: Understanding the AutoCAD workspace and user interface. Using basic drawing, editing, and viewing tools. Organizing drawing objects on layers. Inserting reusable symbols (blocks). Preparing a layout to be plotted. Adding text, hatching, and dimensions. Part 2 (chapters 21 to 32) continues with more sophisticated techniques that extend your mastery of the software. For example, here you go beyond the basic skill of inserting a block to learning how to create blocks, and beyond the basic skill of using a template to understand the process of setting up a template. You learn skills such as: Using more advanced editing and construction techniques. Adding parametric constraints to objects. Creating local and global blocks. Setting up layers, styles, and templates. Using advanced plotting and publishing options. The "AutoCAD(r)/AutoCAD LT(r) 2017 (R1): Fundamentals" student guide is designed for those using AutoCAD(r) or AutoCAD LT(r) 2017 with a Windows operating system. This student guide is not designed for the AutoCAD for Mac software. Prerequisites A working knowledge of basic design/drafting procedures and terminology. A working knowledge of your operating system.

A "must-have" how-to and reference guide to optimizing the AutoCAD 2000 design environment, this book also covers topics such as ActiveX, object-oriented programming, reactors, the WindowsTM registry, programming standards, date and time issues and more! Add this to your library today.AutoLISP to Visual LISP: Design Solutions for AutoCAD 2000 devotes an entire section to the novice programmer, explaining in detail the theory required to write a specialized computer program. Readers are first introduced to the basics of programming with AutoLISP. After gaining confidence using this relatively simple programming language, readers are then challenged to enhance their skills by using Diesel to alter the AutoCAD status line and DCL to incorporate graphics into their programs to make them user-friendly. Finally, readers are exposed to Visual LISP (presented as an extension of AutoLISP) to provide them with editing and debugging features, as well as other tools that can be used to create AutoLISP programs.Keywords: Auto LISP Keywords: Visual LISP

Building Information Modeling (BIM) is an approach to the entire building life cycle. Autodesk(R) Revit(R) for Architecture, MEP, and Structure is a powerful BIM program that supports the ability to coordinate, update, and share design data with team members throughout the design construction and management phases of a building's life. A key component in managing the BIM process is to establish a company foundation for different types of projects by creating standard templates and custom family elements. Having this in place makes the process of any new project flow smoothly and efficiently. The objective of the Autodesk(R) Revit(R) 2018 BIM Management: Template and Family Creation learning guide is to enable users who have worked with the software to expand their knowledge in setting up office standards with templates that include annotation styles, preset views, sheets, and schedules, as well as creating custom system, in-place, and component families. This learning guide contains practices that are specific to each discipline. Topics Covered Create custom templates with annotation styles, title blocks, and custom element types. Create schedules, including material takeoff schedules with formula. Create custom wall, roof, and floor types as well as MEP system families. Set up a component family file with a parametric framework. Create family geometry. Create family types. Modify the visibility of components and incorporate additional family items such as controls, MEP connectors, and nested components. Create specific families, including in-place families, profiles, annotations, and parameters. This learning guide also contains discipline-specific practices for families, including: doors, windows, railings, pipe fittings, light fixtures, gusset plates, and built-up columns. Prerequisites Students should be comfortable with the fundamentals of the Autodesk Revit software, as found in the Autodesk Revit 2018 Architecture Fundamentals, Autodesk Revit 2018 Structure Fundamentals, or Autodesk Revit 2018 MEP Fundamentals learning guides. Knowledge of basic techniques is assumed, such as creating standard element, copying and moving elements, and creating and working with views, etc. Information on Collaboration Tools, Conceptual Design, and Site and Structural Design are covered in additional learning guides.
