Autodesk AutoCAD Mechanical simplifies complex mechanical design work to help you create and revise drawings faster

The standard in 2D mechanical design
With comprehensive libraries of standards-based 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.


Maximize your productivity
Creating mechanical designs often requires spending valuable time on manual work-arounds to get the job done. Since AutoCAD Mechanical provides a simplified drafting environment for manufacturing and automates many manual tasks, it helps to improve the design experience and offers immediate efficiency gains. AutoCAD Mechanical delivers high-impact productivity tools to AutoCAD users performing updates and iterative design changes, reducing the amount of rework associated with these tasks. In addition, powerful dimensioning tools make adding, deleting, and editing dimensions faster and easier. Built to help save you time, AutoCAD Mechanical has a specific tool for almost every aspect of the mechanical drafting process.
