Bridging the gap between the other Complete-A-Sketch books and Practical Drafting, Advanced is a launch pad which introduces advanced sketching methods, drafting concepts, orthographic, isometric, multi-view drawings, engineering concepts and more. Advanced has been created to take advantage of the power of Acrobat and the Internet. This course offers 45 lessons—37 sketch projects and eight 3D paper model projects—plus 25 bonus projects; it also offers links to the vast world of sketching, 3D modeling, computer-aided drafting (CAD), and much more.

If you're really interested in pursuing a career in drafting, this CD-ROM will be a valuable place to start. You'll definitely want to explore the hyperlinks in the PDF and the bonus CAD files and technologies linked to from the disc. The CAD models and images offer both native and neutral formats so you can see images of the files and download programs that will allow you to view and/or explore the provided files. It also has other tips and information in the form of .TXT files. Like the other Complete-A-Sketch books, Advanced is about learning and discovery. Have fun!

Created by Mel Peterman, with the help of his sons Clay and Ian.
