9780123870292: Up and Running with AutoCAD 2012: 2D and 3D Drawing and Modeling

Gindis introduces AutoCAD with step by step instructions, stripping away complexities to  begin working in AutoCAD immediately.  All concepts are explained first in theory, and then shown in practice, helping the reader understand what it is they are doing and why, before they do it.

Divided into three parts, the book covers beginning through advanced AutoCAD, including 3D features. 

Also included is an extensive Appendix

for each part, detailing additional useful CAD-related information not often found

in other text books

The book contains supporting graphics (screen shots) and a summary with a self-test section at the end of each chapter. Also included are drawing examples and exercises, and two running “projects that the student works on as he/she progresses through the chapters .



  • Strips away complexities, both real and perceived and reduces AutoCAD to easy-to-understand basic concepts
  • Teaches only what is essential to operating AutoCAD first, thereby immediately building student confidence
  • All basic commands are documented step-by-step, meaning that what the student needs to type in and how AutoCAD responds is all spelled out in discrete and clear steps with screen shots added as needed
  • Using the author’s extensive multi-industry knowledge of what is important and widely used in practice versus what is not, the material is presented by immediately immersing the student in practical, critically essential knowledge, with no padding of text or filler material
  • All concepts are explained first in theory, and only then is AutoCAD introduced and the actual “button pushing discussed. This  is one of the key concepts in having students understand exactly what it is they are doing and why, before they do it.

Product Description:

Get "Up and Running" with AutoCAD using Gindis' combination of step-by-step instruction, examples, and insightful explanations. The emphasis from the beginning is on core concepts and practical application of AutoCAD in Architecture, Engineering and Design. Equally useful in instructor-led classroom training or self-study, the book is written with the student in mind by a long time AutoCAD user and instructor, based on what works in the industry and the classroom. * Strips away complexities, both real and perceived and reduces AutoCAD to easy-to-understand basic concepts. * Explains "why" something is done, not just "how": the theory behind each concept or command is discussed prior to engaging AutoCAD, so the student has a clear idea of what they are attempting to do. * All basic commands are documented step-by-step: what the student types in and how AutoCAD responds is spelled out in discrete and clear steps with numerous screen shots. * Extensive supporting graphics (screen shots) and a summary with a self-test section and topic specific drawing exercises are included at the end of each chapter. Additional practice is gained through projects that the students work on as they progress through the chapters. * Also available in a "2D only" version covering Part I and Part II of this book. ISBN for 2D version is 978-0-12-375715-9
