AutoCAD 2009 and AutoCAD LT 2009 Bible 1st Edition by Ellen Finkelstein

Preface: Welcome to the AutoCAD 2009 & AutoCAD LT 2009 Bible. Whether you use AutoCAD or AutoCAD LT, you’ll find complete explanations of all the powerful features that you need to know about to design and draw anything. This book is designed to be your comprehensive guide to both the AutoCAD and AutoCAD LT programs.

This book covers every significant AutoCAD and AutoCAD LT feature. If you’re a beginning user, you’ll find everything you need to start out; if you’re already using AutoCAD or AutoCAD LT regularly, the book covers advanced material, as well. Although you can use this book as a tutorial if you’re just starting out or learning a new set of features, it also provides a solid reference base to come back to again and again. The short tutorials on almost every topic will quickly have you creating professional-level drawings. The DVD is chock-full of drawings, a trial version of AutoCAD 2009, and add-in programs (which are mostly for AutoCAD only). This book is all that you need to make full use of either program. For AutoCAD 2009, the emphasis is on a new interface, quick access to information, navigation, and a new macro recorder. Most of the new features are in AutoCAD LT 2009, as well.

Is This Book for You?
The AutoCAD 2009 & AutoCAD LT 2009 Bible covers all of the essential features of AutoCAD and AutoCAD LT and includes clear, real-life examples and tutorials that you can adapt to your needs. Although I fully cover the basics, I have also included material on the many advanced features, such as external database connectivity, AutoLISP, Visual Basic for Applications (VBA), 3D modeling, rendering, and customization. (Most of the advanced features apply to AutoCAD only.) The following categories should help you decide whether this book is for you.

If you are a new AutoCAD or AutoCAD LT user
If you are new to AutoCAD or AutoCAD LT, the AutoCAD 2009 & AutoCAD LT 2009 Bible guides you through all that you need to know to start drawing effectively, whatever your field. Just start at the beginning.

If you are upgrading to AutoCAD 2009 or AutoCAD LT 2009
This book highlights all of the new features and helps you to make the upgrade transition as seamless as possible. Look for the New Feature icons

If you are switching from another CAD program
You already know what CAD is all about. This book clearly explains the AutoCAD and AutoCAD LT way of
drawing the models that you have already been drawing. In addition, you’ll find a great deal of essential
information about transferring files and data from other formats.

How This Book Is Organized
This book is divided into eight parts. 

Part I: AutoCAD and AutoCAD LT Basics 
Part I provides the background information that you need to start drawing. It starts with a “quick tour” that has you drawing right away, and then covers how to start a drawing, use commands, specify coordinates, and set up a drawing.

Part II: Drawing in Two Dimensions
Part II covers all of the commands and procedures for drawing and editing in two dimensions. In addition, I discuss how to control the drawing process with layers, zooming, and panning. Also included in this part is information about dimensioning, plotting, and printing.

Part III: Working with Data
Part III covers many ways to organize and share data, including blocks, attributes, external references, and external databases.

Part IV: Drawing in Three Dimensions
Part IV explains everything that you need to know to draw in three dimensions. It also discusses how to present 3D drawings using hiding, shading, and rendering techniques.

Part V: Organizing and Managing Drawings
Part V helps you to incorporate AutoCAD and AutoCAD LT into your work world by explaining how to set standards, manage drawings, and work with other applications. It concludes with a chapter on creating electronic output.

Part VI: Customizing AutoCAD and AutoCAD LT
Part VI introduces the tools that you need to customize commands, toolbars, linetypes, hatch patterns, shapes, fonts, and the ribbon. You’ll also find a chapter on creating macros with script files as well as the Action Recorder.

Part VII: Programming AutoCAD
Part VII introduces you to programming AutoCAD. It includes three chapters on AutoLISP and Visual LISP, and one chapter on Visual Basic for Applications. This part applies to AutoCAD only

Part VIII: Appendixes
Part VIII provides additional information for AutoCAD and AutoCAD LT users. Appendix A gives instructions for installing and configuring AutoCAD and AutoCAD LT. Appendix B covers additional resources for AutoCAD and AutoCAD LT users. Appendix C explains what you’ll find on the DVD.

How to Use This Book
You can use this book in two ways: as a tutorial and learning tool, or as a reference.

As a tutorial
The overall organization of the book goes from simple to complex, and each chapter has several step-bystep exercises. This enables you to use the book as a tutorial, from beginning to end. You can always go back and redo any exercise when you need to refresh your memory on a particular feature. For newcomers to AutoCAD or AutoCAD LT, Parts I (AutoCAD and AutoCAD LT Basics) and II (Drawing in Two Dimensions) are essential. After that, you can refer to chapters that interest you. Parts III (Working with Data) and V (Organizing and Managing Drawings) are also useful for beginners. Intermediate users will probably be familiar with most of the material in Part I and will be more likely to skip around, looking for the specific topics that they need. However, don’t forget that many new features are introduced in Part I. Enough material appears in this book to bring intermediate users up to a fairly advanced level. I have designed this book to be comprehensive and to include every significant feature of AutoCAD and AutoCAD LT. Therefore, do not be concerned if some of the material seems too advanced. It will be there when you are ready for it.

As a reference
The AutoCAD 2009 & AutoCAD LT 2009 Bible is organized as a reference that you can refer to whenever you are stuck, or when you try to do something for the first time. Each chapter covers a topic completely, making it easy to find what you’re looking for. Each Steps exercise (with a few exceptions) can be done on its own without doing the other exercises in the chapter. You can easily look up a topic and complete a related exercise without having to go through the entire chapter. A complete index at the back of the book can also help you to find features and topics.
