Appendix C. What's on the DVD


  • Using the DVD

  • Accessing the software

  • Using the e-book version

  • Troubleshooting tips

The AutoCAD 2008 and AutoCAD LT 2008 Bible DVD contains all of the drawings and files that you need to do the exercises in the book, as well as the results of those exercises. In addition, I've tried out many useful shareware programs and AutoLISP routines to see whether they work with AutoCAD 2008 and AutoCAD LT and then selected those that I felt would be most useful. Although AutoCAD LT doesn't support AutoLISP routines, a couple of the programs work with AutoCAD LT as well. You can also find the entire book in non-printable PDF format and a document of links to Internet resources. I hope that you find this DVD a valuable addition to your AutoCAD arsenal.


The drawings on the DVD are also available on the publisher's Web site at Click the Downloads link.
