With AutoCAD 2011, Autodesk enhanced the user interface and improved many drawing functions including annotative dimensions and text. Neither simplistic nor exhaustive, this revised edition of Digital Drawing for Designers teaches the latest version of AutoCAD by relating to what architects and interior designers understand best: the visual world. Beginning with the building blocks of drawing (lines, circles, and arcs), the book progresses through architectural graphic standards allowing students to create drawings and effectively communicate their design ideas. Advanced features - such as annotative dimensions, annotative blocks, express tools, and linking drawings (XREFs) - are also covered. Instructions are illustrated using language and concepts from manual drafting, creating a smooth transition to the digital environment for all designers. New learners will appreciate the step-by-step lessons and visual illustrations. Experienced design professionals can easily access material to refresh their knowledge. Clear, concise, and above all visual, this is the AutoCAD guide written for interior designers and architects. Features: - Updated for AutoCAD 2011: compatible with AutoCAD versions 14 through 2011 - Illustrations depicting tools, functions, the AutoCAD ribbon interface, and keyboard commands - Practice exercises to reinforce each chapter's topics - Clear explanation of drawing and printing with line weight - Quick reference aids: command reference guide, index, and large-type page headers - Companion website features downloads for each chapter, including exercises, plot styles, title blocks, drawing templates, and professional AutoCAD drawings Instructor's Resources: - Instructor's Guide includes course syllabi and chapter outlines, tips for teachers, and problems and assignments to suit the skill levels of both interior design students and new interior designers
Through this book's unique model comparison approach, students and researchers are introduced to a set of fundamental principles for analyzing data. After seeing how these principles can be applied in simple designs, students are shown how these same principles also apply in more complicated designs.
home and his clothes with paints and dyes, building better structures, and using fire and tools effectively. The great Chinese, Greek and Roman civilisations all added to the new use of materials, and sculpture and architecture went hand in hand with intellectual and philosophical development. Plato, Euclid, Socrates, Galileo, Leonardo da Vinci, and many others brought society through to the modern age and the start of the Industrial Revolution. More recently another revolution in technology has brought robotics and miniaturisation of components, thus bringing industry more automation and less need for man-operated machinery. During this time engineers have continued to study nature as a model for construction and development. An example is Louis Sullivan with his tension and compression structures based on the Morning Glory flower. Now, the new technique of continuous glass fibre structures, developed by Dr Math (Mathweb) of British Petroleum, go a long way towards helping man to emulate the spider. Developments in rotational moulding, ceramics, glass, controlled crystallisation of metals and many other areas have all introduced new shape possibilities, so now the engineer is more often than not required to be the arbiter of shape and form, rather than being overtly constrained by necessity. It has, however, become possible to distinguish three distinct elements in the design of form which can act as guidelines for the designer, and it is worth studying these in detail.
Microsoft's introduction of its XML Web platform, .NET Framework, and its C# programming language signal Microsoft's total entry into e-commerce, fundamentally changing the way businesses and people interact over the Internet. Building Web Applications with C# and .NET: A Complete Reference is a comprehensive resource with a sharp focus on how to develop and deploy distributed applications using Microsoft's .NET Framework and C#. Written for C++, Visual Basic, Java, and ASP programmers making the transition to .NET, the text begins by providing the fundamentals of network programming and then expands these basics to demonstrate how to use the concepts and capabilities of .NET for developing distributed applications.
Designing and Controlling the Outsourced Supply Chain takes an in-depth look at the role of outsourcing in taking a product from concept to market and then operating the resulting supply chain. This means examining the outsourcing of manufacturing, product design, materials procurement, and logistics. By presenting, interpreting, and extending the current knowledge, the author's prevailing goal is to shed light on the underlying economic and behavioral drivers, implementation challenges, and potential remedies. The analysis is highly attentive to the details of operational execution, particularly regarding how human resources take part in these decision processes and are affected by the choices made. The effects of offshoring are also highlighted in the discussion. Designing and Controlling the Outsourced Supply Chain examines outsourcing from a lifecycle perspective by following the entire process, from development of the idea to outsource, all the way to end of a chosen strategy. This monograph is intended for both scholars and practitioners alike -- for scholars by structuring a vast body of information, analyzing it using theoretical frameworks, and providing directions for future research, and for practitioners by providing a basis for managerial action. Supporting evidence comes from diverse industries and countries.
