CRC Press


608 pages




This book presents problem-solving approaches, step-by-step procedures, software tools, and code for using AutoCAD for visual applications such as data visualization, CAD format conversion, animations, simulations, and kinematic simulation. Coverage includes plotting programs, Pascal programs for generating 2D graphs, AutoLISP applications, and algorithms for multicriteria optimization. The final chapter offers a collection of problems and applications from areas like dynamical systems, vibrations, kinematics, and robotics, which can be solved using the software tools presented earlier. The book includes extensive appendices of useful formulae and source code. B&w diagrams and illustrations are provided throughout. The companion web site offers source code, executables, and simulations. The book is intended for students, engineers, and scientists who have access to AutoCAD and Working Model 2D software; however, it can still be used if the reader only has AutoCAD LT or access to a DXF viewer.
