Acknowledgments

From Ron:

I would like to thank a number of individuals for assisting me in creating Special Edition Using AutoCAD 2000. I truly am grateful for their support and hard work on this project.

Many thanks go to everyone at Macmillan Computer Publishing—I could not have chosen a better team to work with on a project of this size. I would especially like to thank Todd Green, acquisitions editor, and Jeff Durham, development editor, for keeping me focused and on track during the creation of this book. Thanks also to Art Liddle, Paul Richardson, Dylan Vance, and John Brooks for going over the book with a fine-tooth comb as technical editors.

Special thanks also to contributing authors Paul Richardson and his talented wife, Christine Meredith, at Technical Publications in Portland, for pitching in and helping out when I needed it the most. I am indebted to both of them for their efforts.

I truly could not have finished the book without those who contributed to the book. Thanks go to Autodesk employees Clay Freeman for his insight on the book and on Architectural Desktop; to Dylan Vance, for the wonderful job he did on the plotting chapter; to John Brooks, who put forth his best effort on the Mechanical Desktop and Visualization chapters; and to Paul Richardson, who did an incredible job throughout the entire book. I wish to also thank Cynde Hargrave of Autodesk for her efforts in getting the software together for the companion CD.

I would also like to thank those who were instrumental in giving me support from the onset of this project. Many thanks go to Brian Gill and Jeff Leinbach for believing in me, as well as to the many individuals at Sprint—especially Brian Jordan, Pam Hatcher, Bob Phillips, and Paul Savastano—for their ongoing support and advice.

A heartfelt thanks to my family for their encouragement. Finally, and most importantly, I thank my loving wife, Rose, and my two incredible sons, Aaron and Alex, for supporting me throughout the fulfillment of a dream come true.
