Built for manufacturing, AutoCAD Mechanical engineering design software includes all the functionality of AutoCAD, plus libraries of standards-based parts and tools for automating common mechanical drawing tasks.
New for 2017, isolate and restore layer groups and specify linetypes, edit leader notes directly in the drawing area, and create rectangles from the ribbon.
With a library of 700,000 standard parts and features, you can produce accurate drawings with standard components. You can also add custom parts to content library. Layer management let you automatically place items on the correct layer. Attach ISO 1302-2002 surface texture symbols. An extended draw toolbar for manufacturing gives you drafting tools designed for mechanical. Machinery generators and calculators help to better analyze your designs. The mechanical drafting annotation monitor checks for dissociated annotations in model space.
Get instant revisions and standards updates. Create and save custom content. Create associative section/detail views of 3D models. Enhanced tools enable you to edit leader notes directly in the drawing area. With support for international drafting standards, You can deliver standards-based design documentation. Automatically tally an assembly's mass in the BOM. There are extensive JIS and DIN content libraries for Japan and Germany.
