You can never get too much AutoCAD information, right? And while the internet is a great place to get a lot of that info, sometimes you just want to read a book.
Two new publications are now available to help you get your AutoCAD fix. They’re not LT-specific, but there’s still a lot of overlap.
Michael Beall, the AutoCAD Trainer Guy, has just released “The AutoCAD Workbench,” a compilation of the 7 years’ worth of (fantastic) monthly articles he’s written for "Michael’s Corner” over at CADTutor.net.
Although the content for the book was originally developed for versions as far back as AutoCAD 2004, all the exercises, instructions, and screenshots have been updated for AutoCAD 2011.
You can order this book directly from Michael’s site.
(It’s hard to believe how much is still relevant after 7 years…with all the new good stuff we add, the old stuff is still good too.)
Donnie Gladfelter, the CAD Geek, has taken over the “No Experience Required” series for the 2011 installment.
According to the Amazon blurb, the book “helps you quickly see results as you proceed through an engaging, hands-on tutorial. Learn how to plan, develop, document, and present a complete AutoCAD project by following each step sequentially, or, if you prefer, jump in at any stage by downloading the drawing files from the book's companion website. You'll master all essential AutoCAD features, get a thorough grounding in the basics, learn the very latest industry standards and techniques, and quickly become productive with AutoCAD 2011.”
The official release date is sometime next week, but you can pre-order it now to be the first on your block (or in your cube farm) to have it.
