Power tools for mechanical design

AutoCAD Mechanical design software includes all the functionality of AutoCAD, plus libraries of standards-based parts and tools to help accelerate mechanical CAD. With comprehensive libraries of standardsbased 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.

Reduce errors and inconsistencies

When creating mechanical drawings, designers can sometimes inadvertently introduce errors and design inconsistencies, wasting time and money. AutoCAD Mechanical includes libraries of more than 700,000 standard parts and supports international drafting standards, helping users to meet design requirements in the global marketplace consistently.

utoCAD Mechanical software also lets detailers document native Autodesk Inventor models in the familiar AutoCAD drafting environment. This associative workflow automatically synchronizes drawings with the 3D model, which helps to reduce errors and inconsistencies and can save hours of rework. Clear and consistent communication in the design and documentation process helps team members avoid delays and errors on the shop floor, so your company can stay ahead of the competition.

Manage design data more effectively

Once a design is complete, it’s important to share accurate design and part information with the teams responsible for ordering and manufacturing the product. Using software that is not purpose-built for these tasks often means creating crucial parts lists and BOMs by hand. With manual methods, even the smallest design change can introduce errors, resulting in delivery delays to the customer.

To help your organization prevent errors and costly delays, AutoCAD Mechanical is tightly integrated with Autodesk Vault software, to promote more efficient and secure exchange of design data and facilitate earlier collaboration between design and manufacturing workgroups. Different workgroups can manage and track all components of a digital prototype with free Autodesk Design Review software—the all-digital way to review, measure, mark up, and track changes to designs— allowing for better reuse of crucial design data, management of BOMs, and collaboration with other teams and partners.
