Discover how to place and edit dimensions using annotation tools (Power Dimensions, Automatic Dimensions, Mechanical Symbols, Editing Dimensions, and Hole Charts). Comprehend how to access and use the time saving power tools (Power Edit, Power Erase, Power View, Power Recall, and Power Copy). Work with the BOM database to view / add parts list, part references and balloons to your drawings. Access and insert standard mechanical content into your designs (Standard Fasteners, Standard Features, Screw Connections, Component Generators, Calculators, and Springs). Delve into how to use the IGES translator using a simple example. Other tools (Mechanical Structure Concept, Layer Groups, Part Reference, and Associative Hide) are introduced for working WITHOUT Mechanical structure. Users with previous AutoCAD experience will understand the benefits and appreciate the time saving utilities of AutoCAD Mechanical.
