TechSoft 2D Design © is the user friendly CAD program designed for education.
This remarkable book/CD-ROM guides you from first principles to a comprehensive understanding of computer aided drawing techniques.
Students will enjoy and learn from the entertaining and instructive activities included with each Chapter. The methods explained in the first part of the book are developed through a range of innovative Projects designed to stimulate the imagination.
Design a pop-up card, find out about mathematical models and packaging, make a piranha fish mobile, experiment with Art Deco and repeat patterns and tessellations, find out how to use computer aided manufacture to make a clock, design a Celtic step, key, knot or spiral pattern, discover tangrams, use symbols to draw chemistry apparatus or the circuit diagram of an electronic system. All these possibilities and more are explored.
The companion CD-ROM includes the book in Adobe Acrobat format together with links to all the 2D Design drawing files and hyperlinks to appropriate Internet resources. Detailed drawings for all the projects are provided together with a gallery of additional project ideas.
