Autodesk AutoCAD Mechanical 2017 is the latest edition of a well-known Cad product for manufacturing design, developed with the aim to accelerate the design process. This edition has the same functionality as AutoCAD has, but the developers added a plethora of tools for simplifying the procedure of doing mechanical engineering tasks. Now, working on machine components or dimensioning, you spend less time (as compared to the previous version).
Analyzing the features of this version, we can make a conclusion that developers worked in two aspects:
• Mechanical Design Productivity;
• Mechanical Engineering Documentation.
The enhancements and new features are viewable in both categories.
Mechanical Design Productivity
The developers extended layer groups. Now the procedure of restoring or isolating layer groups is not so time-consuming.
This edition is endowed with a comprehensive library of approximately 700,000 standard parts. This option allows users to create more accurate drawings.
Contextual menus and command preview have also undergone positive changes. Users of this edition can easily offset or chamfer commands and preview fillets.
Mechanical design is faster and more accurate now due to the addition of the new intelligent tools. Machinery calculators or generators allow you to analyze the result of work better.
The feature Custom Part Publishing Support enables users to add many custom parts to content library.
The Draw Toll Bar was also improved. It was expended and the choice of tools amazes even the most demanding designers. Besides, there were added drafting tools created with the aim to simplify the mechanical design.
Mechanical Engineering Documentation
The process of making leader notes is more effective and faster in this edition. Users can edit them directly in the drawing area.
Engineers can easily create associative detail views of 3D projects as well as create various dimensions (with the help of abbreviated dialog boxes).
Autodesk AutoCAD Mechanical 2017 supports international drafting standards. It means that work with documentation is faster now. All users have the access to creating standard-based design documentation.
Work with dimensions is not so complicated as it was in the previous version. Besides, engineers are free to select and work with several dimensions at once.
Note template gallery allows users to view the note template symbol library in the ribbon.
