AutoCAD Mechanical software is AutoCAD for manufacturing, purpose-built to accelerate the mechanical design process. It includes all the functionality of AutoCAD, plus a comprehensive set of tools for automating mechanical engineering tasks, such as generating machine components, dimensioning, and creating bills of material. AutoCAD Mechanical provides a library of more than 700,000 standard parts, supports multiple international design standards, and helps users detail and document designs created in Autodesk Inventor software.
AutoCAD Mechanical offers engineers a competitive edge by helping them save hours of effort, so they can spend time innovating rather than drafting.
The standard in 2D mechanical design
With comprehensive libraries of standards based parts, and tools for automating common design tasks, Autodesk® AutoCAD® Mechanical 2016 design and drafting software can help accelerate the mechanical design process. AutoCAD Mechanical provides innovative design and drafting tools that are wholly focused on ease of use for the Autodesk® AutoCAD® user.
Keeping the AutoCAD user experience intact lets designers maintain their existing workflows while adopting the enhanced functionality of AutoCAD Mechanical at their own pace. Designers gain a competitive edge by saving countless hours of design and rework, so they can spend time innovating rather than managing workflow issues.
Maximize your productivity
Creating mechanical designs often requires spending valuable time on manual work-arounds to get the job done. Since AutoCAD Mechanical provides a simplified drafting environment for manufacturing and automates many manual tasks, it helps to improve the design experience and offers immediate efficiency gains.
AutoCAD Mechanical delivers high-impact productivity tools to AutoCAD users performing updates and iterative design changes, reducing the amount of rework associated with these tasks. In addition, powerful dimensioning tools make adding, deleting, and editing dimensions faster and easier. Built to help save you time, AutoCAD Mechanical has a specific tool for almost every aspect of the mechanical drafting process.
