AutoCAD is the most widely used PC-based design program in the world, with approximately 2 million design professionals worldwide--from architects to mechanical designers to electrical engineers--already using the program. With the recent release of AutoCAD 2000 adding hundreds of new features, the demand for the program continues to grow as well as the need for a concise and comprehensive reference book.

AutoCAD 2000 in a Nutshell provides the most complete and comprehensive reference for the newly released AutoCAD 2000. The book contains alphabetically arranged descriptions of nearly every command, including toolbar and command line launch options and important command dialog boxes with detailed descriptions of the various options available to the user. And for advanced users who want to customize the software, there is information on system variables used for scripts, macros, and Autolisp.

The book is intended to be a technical reference for both intermediate and advanced users. This book will save valuable time and increase productivity with hundreds of tips culled from the author's years of experience as an AutoCAD user and instructor.

AutoCAD 2000 in a Nutshell begins with a solid introduction, including a step-by-step guide to the Startup Wizard and setting up a new file, plus a complete listing of all of the new commands in AutoCAD 2000. It also contains a list of AutoCAD 2000 commands, new and old, broken out by function.

The author, Dorothy Kent, has taught AutoCAD to industry professionals for years. She is the author of The AutoCAD Reference Guide: Release 13 and AutoCAD Reference Guide: Everything You Wanted to Know about AutoCAD--Fast!.

AutoCAD 2000 in a Nutshell Review

By Artin Farahani

from Undisclosed

Comments about oreilly AutoCAD In a Nutshell:

I used this book while taking the official Autodesk AutoCAD courses. According to my instructor, this is the most thorough AutoCAD text she had ever come across (including "Mastering AutoCAD, and "AutoCAD Bible"). It had taken her peers and her literally years to find out the proper usage of some of the commands, while I gained the same knowledge in twenty seconds by merely finding the command and reading the "Tips & Warnings" section. For AutoCAD users, this book is a "must have".

AutoCAD 2000 in a Nutshell Review

By Omer Zeyrek

from Undisclosed

Comments about oreilly AutoCAD In a Nutshell:

This AutoCAD book contains all of commands and the best practice method. Also it is a flawless desk reference about engineering design. To approach to the solutions are the only thing that keeps this book from being the best available for making design a person for all engineering areas. All novelties are explained by the author what are

they originally from. As long as you have other autoCAD reference books or good notes from your past experience, this book is great if your looking for best one to learn all autoCAD titles to you.
