Mastering AutoCAD MEP is a concise manual focused squarely on the rationale and practicality of the AutoCAD MEP process. The book emphasizes the process of creating projects in MEP rather than a series of independent commands and tools.

The goal of each lesson is to help the reader complete their projects successfully. Tools are introduced together in a focused process with a strong emphasis on "why" as well as "how." The text and exercises seek to give the reader a clear sense of the value of the tools, and a clear indication of each tool's potential. Mastering AutocAD MEP is a resource designed to shorten your learning curve, raise your comfort level, and most importantly give you real life tested practical advice on the usage of the software to create mechanical, electrical, and plumbing designs and calculations.

Empowered with the information within this book, the reader will have insight into how to use AutoCAD MEP to create construction documents are reflective of their standards and expectations.
