With comprehensive mechanical engineering libraries of standards-based parts and tools for automating common CAD design tasks, AutoCAD Mechanical offers significant productivity gains over basic AutoCAD software.
AutoCAD Mechanical provides support for multiple international standards, including ANSI, BSI, CSN, GB, and GOST, so mechanical engineers and drafters can more easily create standards-based designs that meet global marketplace requirements.
Tightly integrated with Autodesk® data management applications, AutoCAD Mechanical can enable workgroups to securely store, organise, and manage valuable design data and help provide accurate reports to downstream users. The software automatically updates the bill of materials (BOM) and tracks all changes.
AutoCAD Mechanical natively reads and writes authentic DWG™ files, one of the world’s most commonly used design data formats. This capability maintains file intelligence and facilitates the exchange of data with customers and suppliers.
AutoCAD Mechanical can enable mechanical engineers and drafters to more accurately document digital prototypes created in Autodesk® Inventor® software, and communicate insights from the design.
