AutoCAD Mechanical 2015
Experience the functionality of AutoCAD with comprehensive libraries of standards-based parts and tools for automating common mechanical CAD tasks.
The graphic interface of the app aims to be both intuitive and highly functional, since the main window of AutoCAD Mechanical leaves plenty of room for the actual design, while all the menus and buttons are grouped in the upper part.
Due to AutoCAD Mechanical, you can insert various types of standardized parts so that you can complete your drafting projects or mechanical drawings faster than usual. Once you added the elements, you can move, rotate, mirror, stretch, trim and scale them as you see fit, then measure or group them.
You can also draw multiple types of lines, circles or arcs, then adjust them to your necessities. Furthermore, you can attach dedicated frames or layers, then import CAD objects from other files (such as STEP or IGES).
Additionally, AutoCAD Mechanical comes in handy to those looking to insert text strings within their projects, add symbols (for leader note, surface texture or welding).
Another function of AutoCAD Mechanical is that you can access the content libraries, screw templates, steel shapes, shafts and holes, as well as calculate the correct values for springs, chains and belts.
All in all, it is the mechanics experts and professionals who can get the most of AutoCAD Mechanical as they can appreciate all its strong points. The application can be evaluated for a limited period of time and a license needs to be purchased to overcome this limitation.
