FAQ for Hiring Mechanical Desktop Designers

Now known as AutoCAD Mechanical, Mechanical Desktop is basically AutoCAD with parts and tools essential for mechanical drawing tasks. It is built for manufacturing and mechanical engineering design. 

Anyone with knowledge of AutoCAD will not have a hard time getting a handle of the software, but they would have to know how to use the comprehensive libraries of standards-based tools and parts in order to automate common drawing tasks for a mechanical application. Think of these libraries as the mechanical side of AutoCAD. This is a tool specifically for mechanical engineers and drafting technicians.

So whenever mechanical drawing tasks are needed, AutoCAD Mechanical/Mechanical Desktop freelancers would be the best people for the job. They have the skills and knowledge to use the software to its full potential. They not only know how to use the software’s features but the mechanical and technical aspects of the design process and analysis tools available through AutoCAD. Not just anyone can do that. 

What makes Mechanical Desktop a must-have in most projects requiring mechanical features? 

It has an option to automate drawings. 

For instance, you can pre-program the kind of screws, washers, bolts, and nuts, etc, that will be used for a particular project. You can even specify the size of parts to the exact detail, with 700,000 standard parts featured in its library. When implemented, all these parts will be used all throughout a project without the need to re-assign them each and every time. 

It also comes with extensive features and capabilities. It can document 3D CAD Models, manage layers, and layer groups, reuse mechanical drawing detailing tools, infer constraint integration, among many other useful features. 

For this to work, however, a designer must have the technical knowledge that goes with the design knowledge and skills. If needed, they will convert files from Mechanical Desktop to those compatible with AutoDesk Inventor or other CAD programs. 

This underlines the importance of a professional, highly-trained freelance Mechanical Desktop designer.
