The AdvancedAutoCAD® 2018 Exercise Workbook has been helping students, teachers, architects, designers and manufacturers to truly master the software for more than two decades.  And now this work is better than ever, with the inclusion of both inch and metric measurements side-by-side.                The 2018 version of the software boasts the new feature of being able to import SHX fonts when importing documents into AutoCAD®.  With past versions, you could only import SHX fonts as objects that were included in the PDF, which meant that users could not alter the text in any way.  In this 2018 version of the software, the text will be fully editable – the same as TrueType text and fonts.  That’s a tremendous advantage for architects and designers, who use SHX fonts extensively in their drawings.  These new features will be explained and thoroughly illustrated so they can be combined with existing AutoCAD® options, and users can maximize the full power of this versatile software.      Written by Cheryl Shrock and Steve Heather, two bestselling authors and official Beta Testers of AutoCAD® software, this is an invaluable resource for the thousands of students, designers, architects, and manufacturers who are just learning AutoCAD®, or getting up to speed with the latest version of the software.The ability to import SHX fonts when importing a PDF document into AutoCAD.The ability to convert single rows of text into paragraphs.All exercises will include metric equivalents alongside the original imperial (inch) measurements.Additional new features just being released by AutoCAD to beta testers.  To download a file containing the supplied preset drawings mentioned and used in this book click here.

The AutoCAD® 3D Modeling Exercise Workbook is designed for classroom instruction and self-study alike, and is suitable for both inch and metric users. There are 8 lessons and 4 modeling projects, all of which are heavily illustrated, for visual learners. Each lesson starts with step-by-step instructions on how to create 3D solid models, followed by exercises designed for practicing the commands readers learned within that lesson. The modeling projects are designed so that users can create complex 3D models by combining many of the commands learned within the previous lessons. Downloadable sample files are provided to accompany some of the lessons and modeling projects, so readers can follow along and customize their creations to suit their own needs. Written by Steve Heather, bestselling author and official Beta Tester of AutoCAD software, this is an invaluable resource for the thousands of designers, architects, and manufacturers who are using AutoCAD to create their own 3D models and transfer them to a 3D printer for manufacturing and use in the real world.
