MECHANICAL ENGINEERING COURSES
Mechanical Design or Machine Design is one of the important branches of Engineering Design. To understand what exactly machine design or mechanical design is let us consider the example of the gear box of the car. The gear box transmits the motion and the power of the engine to the wheels of the vehicle. The gearbox comprises group of gears which are subjected to not only motion but also the load of the vehicle. For the gears to run at desired speeds and take desired loads it is important that they should be designed. During designing various calculations are performed considering desired speeds and loads and finally the gear of particular material and specific dimensions that can take all loads and that can be manufactured at least possible cost giving optimum performance is designed. In similar fashion all the components of the car, including engine, have to be designed so that they optimally meet all the functional requirements at lowest possible cost. This whole process of designing is called as machine design or mechanical design.
On other hand AutoCAD mechanical is an add on to AutoCAD . It is designed to draw piping, plumbing, ducting, and electrical. It is primarily used for the design and prefabrication of building systems. Then by the use of the 3d model you generate isometric views elevations and cut sections for an accurate view of what is to come. It has many commands to facilitate its purpose.
