Autodesk AutoCAD Mechanical Overview
Autodesk AutoCAD Mechanical is a powerful extension to standard design and 2D drafting software with specialist functionality for the manufacturing, engineering and mechanical design sectors, and companies involved in digital prototyping workflows.
Delivering up to 65% productivity increases over 2D CAD software, it enables clients to deliver projects in much shorter timeframes than could ever be achievable with standard AutoCAD, thereby reducing project costs and improving profitability.
AutoCAD Mechanical’s powerful mechanical design and engineering biased toolset simplifies and accelerates the design process with the inclusion of a mechanical library of over 700,000 mechanical parts and components, machinery generators and calculators and also includes Autodesk Inventor Fusion allowing the intelligent re-use and direct manipulation of a range of 3D file formats.
Further productivity gains are made with it’s extended drafting capabilities which includes intelligent layer management, automated hidden line functionality, power dimensioning tools and additional mechanically biased drawing tools, making this mechanical CAD software solution a must have for mechanical design and engineering professional wishing to stay within a predominately 2D workflow.
