AutoCAD Mechanical   

AutoCAD Mechanical design and drafting software is AutoCAD software for manufacturing, with libraries of standards-based parts and tools for automating common mechanical CAD tasks and accelerating the mechanical design process.

The AutoCAD Mechanical toolset adds a library of standards-based parts and tools to help you create, modify, and document mechanical designs for manufacturing.

Automate mechanical engineering tasks, such as generating machine components, dimensioning, and creating bills of material.

Create parts, assemblies, and other drawings for product design using specialized tools.

The Mechanical toolset contains more than 700,000 standard parts like pre-drawn screws, nuts, washers, pins, rivets, and bushings. It also includes 100,000 pre drawn standard features such as undercuts, keyways, and thread ends. When incorporated into a design, the feature cleans up the insertion area automatically in the drawing, so you don’t have to edit manually. The Mechanical toolset also contains more than 8,000 pre-drawn holes such as through holes, blind holes, counter-bored holes, countersunk holes, oblong holes, and others.


Course Objective:

The objective of this course is to teach users the basic commands and tools necessary for professional 2D drawing, design and drafting using AutoCAD / AutoCAD LT. After completing this foundation course students will be able to:

  • Use AutoCAD for daily working process.

  • Create multiple designs using several of tools.

  • Create layers to control the objects’ visibility.

  • Explain drawing using annotations.

  • Plot or print the drawing by scale.

  • To use constraint for certain design.

  • Navigate throughout AutoCAD using major navigating tools.

  • Understand the concept and techniques to draw.


Latest Update:

Autodesk has now released AutoCAD® 2020. The new version includes access industry-specific toolsets including architecture, electrical design, map 3D, mechanical design, MEP (mechanical, electrical and plumbing), plant 3D, including P&ID functionality, raster design; improved workflows across desktop, web and mobile; and new features such as the Blocks palette.

Course Description:

AutoCAD Mechanical includes the very best of AutoCAD along with industry-specific libraries of parts and tools for mechanical engineering, making it a must-learn application for anyone involved in the design and construction of machinery. AutoCAD Mechanical is one of the toolsets available in one AutoCAD. This course covers the basics of the AutoCAD Mechanical 2020 user interface and leads you step-by-step through producing precise, measured mechanical engineering drawings and designs.

Career opportunities:

AutoCAD designers are responsible for 2D and 3D CAD designs using the software in the manufacturing and construction industries. Some of the common organizations hire AutoCAD professionals are construction companies to manufacturing companies and those operating in energy industries etc.

A professional certification from a reputed organization will help the student to perform the following job responsibilities:

Create accurate layouts, assembly details, and drawings

Communicate with executives and engineers to research catalogs, drawings, and sketches and develop edge-to-edge CAD drawings.

Review drawings before the release

Conduct research and acquire codes and standards to develop plans
