nanoCAD Mechanica – The Mechanical Drawing Software that Accelerates, Innovates and Automates

nanoCAD Mechanica - a Mechanical Drawing Software, is an advanced application developed for mechanical engineers, designers and drafters, giving them with prospects in the field of automation of design and construction work in numerous areas of the manufacturing industry. Unlike nanoCAD pro which is also a 2D & 3D modelling software, nanoCAD Mechanica is a stand alone 2D drafting and design software with a large library of standard parts and tools designed to help program design tasks and for mechanical drawings creation. When designers form mechanical designs using nanoCAD Mechanica, they evade boring routines and monotonous manual tasks usually required to get the job done. nanoCAD Mechanica helps designers accelerate design, reduce development time and provide their products to market – easily!

Increase Your Productivity With nanoCAD Mechanica!

Easily save time with a complete user-expandable library of mechanical parts (gearboxes, shafts, pneumatics and hydraulics pipes etc.) with fixed parametric links supporting international drafting standards (ISO, DIN and others) in the nanoCAD Mechanica. nanoCAD Mechanica Subscription offers a commanding tool that automatically alters all linked parts if you change one of them; this advances the quality of the mechanical drafting development. nanoCAD Mechanica delivers automatic connection of fittings with pipeline elements. Element size and placement coordinates are easily detected. The software allows you to make Fastening and Rivet connections with ease. Moreover, this Mechanical Drawing Software allows you to achieve all engineering calculations easily. Also, you can find a number of drawing design symbols (leaders, surface textures, tolerances, dimensions, views, sections, welding and etc.) for everyday tasks. Furthermore, drafting tools consist of automated formation of Part list, with a flexible and natural control of structure and content.

The core of the system

  • Updated nanoCAD Pro platform;
  • The independent Windows-based application.
  • A simple and familiar interface
  • Classic set of commands required for high-quality preparation of project documents.
  • Functional nanoCAD Mechanica include a typical set of design tools, including:

  • Thoughtful and convenient interface that allows rapid transition from other CAD or from paper design;
  • Two-dimensional design module;
  • Two-dimensional parametric module dependencies;
  • Numerous methods and modes of construction of graphics primitives and symbols (including orthogonal drawing, object snaps, and others.);
  • Management procedure rendering and overlay graphics;
  • Standard and custom line types, hatch types, font style;
  • Frequent methods of dimensioning and process notation;
  • auto-fit tolerances and deviations;
  • Automated normative control text designations;
  • Fast access to typical texts and designations;
  • Built-in text editor with spell checking;
  • A built-in table editor.
  • All the particulars of the overall design and technology base are parametric and object-dependent. Now you can insert two-dimensional objects of design and technological base. If you change the parameters of one detail all the related objects-dependent items will change easily, and in accord with their values in the database. The technology – a powerful tool of multiple designing, initiate to advance the quality of producing projects.
