The Benefits of using the Mechanical Toolset in AutoCAD

In this productivity study, you will see how the Mechanical toolset saves time through features including:

  • An intelligent layer management system places items on the correct layer and line type as the drawing is created.
  • More than 30 options for rectangle, arc, and circle creation.
  • Recognizing identical parts in 2D, even when they’re hidden.
  • More calculation functions for analyzing 2D geometries subject to static loads.
About the Study

Autodesk commissioned a study that compared basic AutoCAD to the Mechanical toolset when performing nine tasks commonly used by mechanical engineers. Results showed that the Mechanical toolset provided over 55% overall productivity gain* compared with basic AutoCAD when these tasks were performed by an experienced AutoCAD user.

The Mechanical toolset provides a level of productivity for mechanical designers and drafters that is not possible with basic AutoCAD.  On average, it is possible to save about 55%  of the 2D CAD working time.

Save 86% of time  to prepare the assembly of foreground/background with details and understand all critical issues.

Save 80% of time to calculate forces that affect plastic trays and avoid existing robot cells to cause problems when clamping.

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.
