  • Supports the use of additional symbols specified by the 2012 revision of ISO 1101 (DIN, BSI, and CSN)

Mechanical Design Productivity

700,000 Standard Parts and Features
Rely on a comprehensive set of standards-based components to produce accurate mechanical drawings and get more consistent results on the shop floor. Insert content and let AutoCAD Mechanical clean up the surrounding geometry so you don't have to edit it manually. The software supports international mechanical drafting standards and includes libraries of more than 700,000 standard parts, including:
  • Screws, nuts, and washers
  • Pins, rivets, and bushings
  • Plugs, lubricators, and sealing rings
  • Bearing and shaft components
  • Structural steel shapes
  • Through, tapped, blind, and oblong holes
  • Undercuts, keyways, and thread ends
Reusable Mechanical Drawing Detailing Tools
Use a specific tool for almost every aspect of the mechanical CAD drafting process. Intelligent mechanical drafting tools help you re-edit features without having to remove and re-create the original feature. For example, you can easily resize a chamfer or fillet through the original dialog box parameters by double-clicking the chamfer or fillet. Tools include:
  • Detail views: Create linked views at different scales
  • Hole charts: Automatically update charts for the shop floor
  • Title and revision blocks: Available in English and metric versions
Layer Management
The layer management system automatically places items on the correct layer - with correct color and linetype - as you create your mechanical drawing. Easily customize AutoCAD Mechanical drafting software based on your company requirements and use layer management to differentiate your drawings
Hidden Lines
Update geometry automatically when changes occur and virtually eliminate time-consuming manual redrawing. Improve productivity by defining simple foreground and background selections that automatically redraw geometry to show hidden or dashed lines of parts obstructed by other parts in your design. Identical parts can have different geometrical appearances when hidden. AutoCAD Mechanical recognizes that they are still identical parts if you need to change the design or get an accurate count for the parts list. This helps you to save time and effort updating your 2D designs
Machinery Generators and Calculators
Get comprehensive tools to more efficiently build mechanisms from paper catalogs and manual calculations. Built into the application environment, these machinery generator and calculator tools - including shaft, spring, belt, chain, and cam generators - help you make small, iterative changes to improve your mechanical drawing. They not only create parts according to your specifications, but they also create all the reports and calculations you need to analyze the design
Custom Part Publishing Support
All part publishing features that apply to standard parts are available for custom parts
  • Add custom parts to the existing content library to share within your organization
  • Provide intelligence to these parts by adding parametric constraints to them through an easy-to-use environment
  • Use key features, including a Grip Snap tool and a Size-by-Drag tool
Extended Draw Toolbar for Manufacturing
AutoCAD Mechanical provides additional mechanical drawing and drafting options beyond what's available in AutoCAD. These include:
  • More than 30 options for rectangle, arc, and circle creation
  • Automatic centerline creation and updating
  • Specialty lines for breakout views and section lines
  • A full suite of construction lines for aligning drafting views
Infer Constraint Integration
Geometrically and dimensionally constrain rectangles, symmetrical lines, and centerlines in mechanical drawings. Turn on Auto Constrain and geometrical constraints are inferred automatically while creating the objects. Once constrained, rectangles remain rectangular and centerlines remain in the center of circles or holes

Mechanical Engineering Documentation

Autodesk Synergy for Mechanical Engineering
Create associative section and detail views of 3D models created in AutoCAD, Inventor software, and other third-party products
  • Import other formats, including SolidWorks, Pro/ENGINEER, CATIA, Rhino, and NX applications
  • Drawing views, edge display, and location are instantly updated when an engineering change is made
  • Detail views include full control of shape, scale, and annotations
  • With leader note capabilities and features such as Holes and Extract Thread Data, AutoCAD Mechanical is a powerful documentation solution for mechanical design
Smart Mechanical Engineering Dimensions
Create dimensions using abbreviated dialog boxes that conveniently control and expand only the relevant variables for manufacturing
  • With automatic dimensioning, you can create multiple dimensions with minimal input, resulting in instant groups of ordinate, parallel, or symmetric items that are appropriately spaced
  • Smart dimensioning tools force overlapping dimensions to automatically space themselves appropriately while integrating tolerance and fit list information into the mechanical design
  • Dimension input can even drive and change design geometry to fit certain sizes
Support for International Drafting Standards
Increase productivity with tools that help you and your team deliver consistent, standards-based design documentation
  • AutoCAD Mechanical engineering software supports ANSI, BSI, CSN, DIN, GB, ISO, JIS, and GOST drafting environments
  • Adhering to a standard environment helps improve team communication and drive consistent production results
  • The software also includes drafting tools for creating standards-based surface texture symbols, geometric dimensioning and tolerances, datum identifiers and targets, notes, taper and slope symbols, and weld symbols
Associative Balloons and Bills of Materials
Create automated and associative part lists and BOMs specifically developed for manufacturing and that automatically update as the design changes. AutoCAD Mechanical engineering software includes support for multiple parts lists for each drawing, collapsible assemblies, automatic recognition of standard parts, and customizable options so that features can be revised to match current company practices. Change a design once, and updates ripple through the entire mechanical drawing to keep everyone on schedule, reducing costly stops in production from incorrect part counting, identification, and ordering. Export or link BOM data to manufacturing resource planning (MRP), enterprise resource planning (ERP), or data management systems, such as Vault data management software
Dimension In-Place Editor
Select multiple dimensions at once; see a real-time preview when modifications are made. Insert symbols, add or modify fits and tolerances, add prefix or suffix text, and modify precision while seeing a real-time preview. With multiple diameters along a shaft selected, applying an h6 fit applies the tolerance to each dimension, based on the nominal size
BOM Migration
AutoCAD Mechanical software supports multiple templates. BOM setup is easier with automatic mapping of BOM properties and automatic creation of migration templates
JIS and DIN Content Libraries
Get extensive content libraries for Japan (JIS) and Germany (DIN). JIS (Japanese) library includes G 3350:2009 Light Gauge Steel and JIS G 3452:2010 Gas Pipe standards. The DIN (German) library includes DIN 6917:1989, DIN 6918:1990, and DIN 6918A:1990 Fasteners
Autodesk Content Explorer
Quickly find your design content based on file objects or text attributes. Content Explorer creates an index of your data based on where you instruct it to look, helping you to quickly access files, blocks, layers, linetypes, and styles, and enabling you to access and insert data into DWG files
Mechanical Drafting Annotation Monitor
Check for disassociated annotations in the model space, as well as in each paper space layout. Each disassociated annotation (such as dimension, leader note, or surface texture symbol) is flagged by an in-canvas badge, which also provides access to Delete and Reassociate commands, giving you complete feedback on the accuracy of your documentation
