Design and AutoCAD 2004

The contents of this book are only designed to allow those who have a limited (or no) knowledge and skills of the construction of technical drawings using AutoCAD 2004. However it needs to be recognised that the impact of modern computing on the methods of designing in industry has been immense. Such features as analysis of stresses, shear forces, bending forces and the like can be carried out more quickly and accurately using computing methods. The storage of data connected with a design and the ability to recover the data speedily are carried out much easier using com-

technical drawings of all types are necessary for achieving well-designed artefacts whether it be an engineering component, a machine, a building, an electronics circuit or any other design project.
