Computer-aided design (CAD) is the dominant
design and drawing tool used in architecture, and all
students need to acquire basic skills in using it. This
book explains the key CAD skills required to create
plans, 3D models, and perspectives. Detailed text
and hundreds of screengrabs and visuals are used to
demonstrate the various techniques and processes.
2D skills are shown using AutoCAD, SketchUp and
Vectorworks, while 3D modelling and presentation
techniques also include 3ds Max, Maya, Form·Z and
Photoshop. The reader will learn how to simplify the
software interface and tools in order to focus on the
most common and useful tasks. This is an invaluable
guide for all students of architecture.
