About

Features

For courses in AutoCAD for Interior Design.

This richly illustrated book arms interior design students with solid, practical know-how and step-by-step AutoCAD instruction. It is organized around a series of tasks and combines explanations of AutoCAD commands with practical systematic drafting procedures. This edition introduces Architectural Desktop (so students can learn the difference between the two systems), includes a new design project, and offers a new chapter on the reflected ceiling plan and schedule. Its emphasis on professional applications and balance of coverage leaves readers with a set of skills that can be used immediately in school or in the profession.

Hallmark Features

A focus on interior design applications–is a hallmark of this text.

  • Provides detailed step-by-step instructions and examples that are specific to interior design students.
