From the Foreword
` ... man develops modern technology, modern technology influences man. An architectural or engineering office supporting a CAD department is deeply influenced by this relatively new technology and cannot be successful in its use unless organizationally and individually ready to be influenced; just as modems and word processing have revolutionized verbal communication in the A/E environment, CAD is in the process of revolutionizing both small and large scale visual communication...
May the reader of this useful book learn to make the best use of one of the most rewarding visual techniques developed to date.'
Mario Salvadori (late), Hon. ASCE, Hon. AIA; Honorary Chairman of the Board, Weidlinger Associates Inc., Consulting Engineers; Professor Emeritus of Civil Engineering and Architecture, Columbia University
