Home » Learnings » Mechanical CAD
Mechanical Computer-Aided Design (MCAD) software is utilized for creating and transforming 2D and 3D product designs with precise and thorough technical drawings for designing, evaluating, and documenting mechanical components and products.
Following is a list of tools useful in the mechanical product design process.


AutoCAD is the most renowned and indisputable reference for 2D and 3D drawing and modeling. It allows the creation and modification of geometric models to create structures and objects and gives additional tools for 2D and 3D design.  
  • Technologies like AutoCAD home decor and 3D printing aid in promotional campaigns.
  • AutoCAD’s tools make suspension bridge design easy.
  • Electrical design tools are prevalent in AutoCAD. It replicates DC and AC systems with many electrical symbols

Autocad helps digital 2- and 3-dimensional drawings be created and edited far more rapidly and efficiently than they could be by hand with this program.

It takes a lot of work to transform an idea that exists in the head of a mechanical professional into a real product that a machinist can manufacture, put together in a workshop, or print with a 3D printer that is of high enough quality to be considered beneficial.

The design process is the most important step in the manufacturing process because that’s when the product goes from an idea to a real thing, and the engineer often has to step back. Typically, other people will create the image based on what the engineers draw in the technical drawing. This process used to be carried out by hand, but computer-assisted design is the standard in the business these days.


Inventor is a program that specializes in precision machining and digital prototyping. It’s manufacturing-driven. Therefore, users want a real-world experience to see how their things work. Inventor’s “hands-on” approach makes it the best CAD program for generating and executing engineering simulations.  
  • Inventor’s robustness helps large worldwide enterprises. Home-office solutions allow engineering teams to interact across nations.
  • The inventor handles initial concepts, virtual prototyping, simulations, final part revisions, schematic design, and documentation.
  • Inventor supports direct, parametric, sheet metal, freeform, tube, pipeline, and automated framework architectures.
