This book provides new and seasoned users with step-by-step procedures on creating and modifying 3D models, working with cameras and lights, assigning materials to objects, rendering, and printing. Unlike many AutoCAD competitors, it uses "mixed units" - inches, meters, feet, kilometers, etc., to illustrate the myriad tools for this popular application. Use the companion DVD to set up drawing exercises and projects and see all of the book's figures including color. "AutoCAD 2013 3DModeling" includes 50 "mini-workshops," that complete small projects from concept through actual plotting. Solving all of the workshops will simulate the creation of full projects (architectural and mechanical) from beginning to end, without overlooking any of the basic commands and functions in AutoCAD 2013. This title covers 3D solid modeling, 3D surface modeling, working with cameras/lighting, rendering and imaging, dimensioning and drafting, and model interchange. It is accompanied by a DVD featuring projects, drawings, plots, 4-color figures, etc. It includes 50 "mini-workshops," that complete small projects from concept through actual plotting.
