Beginning AutoCAD® 2018 Exercise Workbook



eThe Beginning AutoCAD® 2018 Exercise Workbook is designed for classroom instruction and self-study alike, and is now suitable for both inch and metric users to accommodate readers around the world. Each lesson starts with step-by-step instructions on how to master a particular task, followed by exercises designed for practicing the commands readers learned within that lesson.

The 2018 version of the software boasts the new feature of being able to import SHX fonts when importing documents into AutoCAD. With past versions, you could only import SHX fonts as objects that were included in the PDF, which meant that users could not alter the text in any way. In this 2018 version of the software, the text will be fully editable – the same as TrueType text and fonts. That’s a tremendous advantage for architects and designers, who use SHX fonts extensively in their drawings.

NEW AND IMPROVED FEATURES

  • The ability to import SHX fonts when importing a PDF document into AutoCAD.
  • The ability to convert single rows of text into paragraphs.
  • All exercises include metric equivalents alongside the original imperial (inch) measurements.
  • Additional new features just being released by AutoCAD to Beta Testers.

CONTENTS

  • Introduction
  • 30 Lessons, including full instructions and illustrations
  • 6 Appendixes
