AutoCAD 2020 Tutorial First Level 2D Fundamentals introduces the aspects of Computer Aided Design and Drafting (CADD). This text is intended to be used as a training guide for students and professionals. This text covers AutoCAD 2020 and the lessons proceed in a pedagogical fashion to guide you from constructing basic shapes to making multiview drawings.
This textbook contains a series of eleven tutorial style lessons designed to introduce beginning CAD users to AutoCAD 2020. It takes a hands-on, exercise-intensive approach to all the important 2D CAD techniques and concepts. This text is also helpful to AutoCAD users upgrading from a previous release of the software. The new improvements and key enhancements of the software are incorporated into the lessons. The 2D-CAD techniques and concepts discussed in this text are also designed to serve as the foundation to the more advanced parametric feature-based CAD packages such as Autodesk Inventor.
