Best for mechanical design engineers
AutoCAD Mechanical is the first software I used in my Mechanical Engineering course. I used AutoCAD to make different views of the mechanical products as per the Indian Standard ( First Angle projection ), which helps me to understand the design prospects of the product.
I also use it to insert standard components while making 3D Models, as AutoCAD provides a wide range of standard parts which are readily available in the AutoCAD library
AutoCAD Mechanical is one of the most used software for Mechanical Engineers for creating 2D and 3D Models. The best part about AutoCAD Mechanical is the simple interface with all the options readily available in the front of our eyes, making it easier to make all kinds of 2D Models.
AutoCAD Mechanical also offers many options for file saving which include, template, drawing, pdf, and assembly file, which also makes it possible to open our documents in other Modelling software like SolidWorks as well.
With the AutoCAD Mechanical, the 2D Modelling can be done with ease, but for 3D Modelling, the AutoCAD Mechanical becomes pretty complex and doesn't have as many options as the Advanced Modelling Software like SolidWorks.
Also, it takes time to get used to AutoCAD since all the options for 2D Modelling are available in just one ribbon tab, and searching for the required options is quite time-consuming.
