About this Course

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.

Expert covers the basics of the AutoCAD Mechanical 2021 user interface and leads you step-by-step through producing precise, measured mechanical engineering drawings and designs. Expert teaches you how to structure drawings and data, create and edit geometry, generate parts from the library, and annotate drawings.

Plus, expert shows how to perform design calculations for manufacturing, as well as create templates that are customized to suit any workflow.


Topics include:

  • Navigating the interface
  • Managing layers and object properties
  • Structuring, reusing, and editing mechanical data
  • Creating key geometry
  • Adding centerlines and holes
  • Manipulating geometry
  • Inserting parts with part generators
  • Creating drawing sheets
  • Placing dimensions and annotating parts
  • Creating a bill of materials and parts list
  • Calculating design factors
  • Creating a default standard template
