Using Autocad For Mechanical

AutoCAD Mechanical is a comprehensive Mechanical product design & drafting software catering to various needs of mechanical engineering companies. AutoCAD comes with a complete set of powerful drafting and detailing tools for drafting professionals - delivering the most efficient solutions in mechanical product design. Following mentioned some of the important functions and features of AutoCAD Mechanical design suite.

700,000 Standard Mechanical Components:
If you are working with machinery that requires hundreds or thousands of parts, it might take weeks or even months to draw them from scratch. Here AutoCAD Mechanical software can be of help to you. It has a comprehensive set of parts and features that you can choose for your designs. The software supports several manufactured parts such as Nuts, Screws, Washers, Rivets, Pins, Plugs, Bushings, Bearings, Structural Steel Shapes, Shaft Components, Keyways, Undercuts, Thread Ends and many more.

Powerful and Quick Dimensions:
With the use of simplified tools you can generate dimensions to easily control and expand only important variables for manufacturing. With automatic dimensioning, you can generate several dimensions with less input and force overlapping dimensions to automatically place themselves apart properly and even drive and adjust design geometry to fix in certain sizes.

Incorporation for International Drafting Standards:
AutoCAD supports BSI, ANSI, DIN, CSN, GB, ISO and GOST drafting platforms. Compliance with industry standards improve internal communication and results in reliable production outputs. The software comes with specific drafting tools for generating standards-based geometric dimensions, surface texture symbols, mechanical symbols and weld symbols. You can increase your productivity manifold and help your team deliver up-to-date, standards-based design documentation.

Automatic update across all drawings:
AutoCAD automatically redraw geometry to illustrate dashes and hidden lines of parts that are blocked by other parts in mechanical design. The hidden lines feature automatically update all relevant drawings when a change occur, practically removing lengthy manual redrawing of geometry due to repeat changes. This means you save time and efforts revising your 2D designs.

Easy Data Swapping over Different CAD Systems:
AutoCAD Mechanical suite comes with in-built industry-standard STEP (Standard for the Exchange of Product Data) and IGES (Initial Graphics Exchange Specification) formats for exchanging data between different CAD systems.

So start taking benefit of AutoCAD's comprehensive software tools to make your Mechanical drafting and drawings processes more efficient.
