AutoCAD® is the premier PC-based drafting tool that has been used by millions of engineers, draftsmen, project managers, and engineering students since its inception in 1982. AutoCAD® 2011 3D Modeling Essentials provides new and seasoned users with simple, step-by-step procedures on creating and modifying 3D models, setting up cameras and lights, assigning materials to objects, rendering, and printing. Use the accompanying DVD to set up drawing exercises, view all of the book's figures in full color, and draw with a trial version of AutoCAD 2011. Forty-five exercises (mini-projects) throughout the book simulate the creation of a full real-world project from concept to completion, without overlooking any of the fundamental commands and functions of AutoCAD® 2011.
