This book teaches technical drawing and uses AutoCAD 2013 as its drawing instrument. Although it follows the general format of many technical drawing texts and presents much of the same material about drawing conventions and practices, the emphasis is on creating accurate, clear drawings.
The standards and conventions are presented and their applications are shown by the use of AutoCAD 2013. This integrated teaching concept is followed throughout the book.
Most chapters include design problems. The design problems are varied in scope and are open-ended, which means that there are several correct solutions. This is intended to encourage student creativity and increase their problem-solving abilities.
