AutoCAD for the Theatre
Computer-aided drafting (CAD) is a type of software that was developed for engineers and architects. Having caught the attention of theatre companies, it is often used as a professional drafting tool for set design and production.
This fully illustrated book is organized around a practical step-by-step project: the technical drawings for the set of a play titled A Matter of Murder and Peerage in the Scottish Manor. By using AutoCAD to develop this project, students will learn computer-based techniques for 2D drafting as well as 3D modelling. By the end, students will have acquired not only valuable AutoCAD skills, but the prints of a ground plan, extended elevations, a centre line section and renderings of a 3D model, which are all suitable for a professional portfolio.
