The Best Tools for Mechanical Design!

This version of AutoCAD software (officially referred to as Autodesk AutoCAD Mechanical), offers you the powerful tools and capabilities of AutoCAD combined with more specialised functionality to provide support specific to sectors in mechanical design, manufacturing and engineering along with companies that work with digital prototyping workflows.

AutoCAD Mechanical also provides you with tools that serve to speed up the functionality of CAD while also giving you access to comprehensive libraries containing standards based parts. Included within the Autodesk AutoCAD Mechanical libraries will be seven hundred thousand mechanical parts and components, machinery generators as well as calculators. You will also discover that it’s possible to automate certain common tasks, which serves to help the design process move along at a faster pace; saving time and increasing profitability for all the people involved with the project.

Autodesk Inventor is also fully integrated into this AutoCAD Mechanical software making it possible for you to work with various 3D file formats by re-using them or through direct manipulation. Merging the two softwares also serves to help with saving on time, as models created in Inventor can conveniently be translated to 3D models. This is due to the resulting automatic synchronisation created by the workflow between Inventor and AutoCAD Mechanical. Aforementioned workflow is another way in which this software helps you save time and money on all your projects.

As mentioned earlier, you can conveniently automate certain specific tasks to help save on time. The tasks which can be handled automatically are all differing aspects of mechanical design, examples include: forming machine components, dimensioning and generating material lists.

The libraries (containing standards based parts) available to you as part of your purchase of Autodesk AutoCAD Mechanical software are in line with drafting standards at an international level. This will help keep your designs competitive as you will be in a position to work in accordance with design requirements on a global scale and, in a consistent manner. Additionally these parts make it possible for you to create your drawings as accurately as possible.

You will also gain access to many more of the helpful features AutoCAD Mechanical provides. This includes: expanded capabilities for drafting (under this label you will also be able to utilise smart layer management), the ability to automate hidden line functionality, and tools for the purpose of power dimensioning. Aside from this Autodesk AutoCAD Mechanical also possesses additional tools meant to accommodate all manner of mechanical based drawings.

For the purpose of guaranteeing efficient data management, AutoCAD Mechanical software is also integrated with Autodesk Vault. This is because it’s important to have a convenient and secure means through which data can be exchanged. If a program like Autodesk Vault isn’t used, then your only option is to carry out certain tasks (such as: creating lists for parts as well as writing BOM’s), manually. And by resorting to the manual method you run the risk of causing errors. Hence Autodesk Vault allows you to build team work and collaborative efforts while providing you with an easy option for exchanging data.

Of course there are even more benefits to using AutoCAD Mechanical software. While listing every single one would be fairly time consuming, it is however possible to outline the benefits that stand out most. For example, the machinery generators and calculators mentioned earlier enable you to examine designs more effectively. The interoperability with Inventor enables the possibility for convenient documentation of 3D CAD models.

You will also be able to find many tools designed for mechanical drawings; among them is the extended draw toolbar for manufacturing purposes. You can also attach surface texture symbols in line with ISO 1302-2002 thanks to mechanical drafting standards.  And by utilising abbreviated dialog boxes you can also create dimensions.
