AutoCAD 14: No Experience Required
is an introduction to the basic features and commands of AutoCAD as they are used in computer-aided architectural drafting. The essential fourteen skills are presented as an on-going tutorial in which the reader is guided through the steps necessary to create a floor plan, elevations, and other drawings that illustrate a small cabin. As you move from skill to skill, you develop this set of drawings and learn, eventually, how to dimension, place text in a drawing, link external references and print from Paper Space. An introduction to the concepts and techniques for drawing in 3D is presented in the appendix.
