The mechanical project is the first step in any design process. It's a complete assembly of parts, including all the required components and their location. The mechanical project is usually created in CAD software and can be used to create other drawings such as manufacturing drawings that show how to make the part or assembly.

The first step is to create a new drawing using the “New” command. The second step is to save the drawing with a name and choose an appropriate file type which will depend on what one plans on doing with the drawing. Third step is to select the units of measure and lastly, set up the grid spacing for the drawing.

The mechanical project in AutoCAD is used to create 2D and 3D models. These models can be created by using the commands and tools in the Mechanical tab of the ribbon. The mechanical project has many benefits, such as:

  • Creating a 2D or 3D model
  • Editing a 3D model
  • Displaying a model
  • Setting parameters

AutoCAD has many features that are used to create mechanical projects. These features include paper space and model space, drawing views (elevations), annotative objects, and the use of layers.

This section will discuss the use of mechanical projects in AutoCAD. Mechanical projects are used to create a 3D model of an object, which is then used to generate a 2D drawing. The purpose of these mechanical models is to provide more accurate drawings that can be easily exported into other programs such as Adobe Illustrator or Solidworks.
