Fits List

Generates a fits list from the dimensions in the drawing area and places it at a location of your choice. If you add, remove, or modify fits, GstarCAD Mechanical attempts to update the fits lists.

The Library feature simplifies working with and managing drawing files. When you start the GMLIBRARY command, the Library dialog box appears.

GstarCAD Mechanical commands, using a feature that is known as Automatic Property Management, are pre-configured to create objects on specific layers.If the layer doesn't exist, the command automatically creates the layer.

Creates breaks in dimensions at specific points or at points where the dimensions cross other objects. The break is associative. If the crossing object moves, the break moves with the object. This command enables you to increase the readability of a drawing without having to explode a dimension.

Drafting Tools

Simplify mechanical drawing documentation by using intelligent drafting tools like holes and centerlines, construction lines, ….., and much more….

Associate Detailing Tool

Update drawings quickly with powerful tools that enable users to edit previous operations, saving valuable design time. Easily re-edit features without having to remove and re-create the original feature. For example, Detail,Creat Situation,Chamfer,……

Power Dimensioning

Power dimension tool makes dimensioning easier by setting up variables relevant to manufacturing, as well integrates tolerance and fit list information. Smart dimensioning tools force overlapping dimensions to automatically space themselves appropriately.

Automatic Dimensioning

Multiple dimension tool creates multiple dimensions effortlessly .Users can create multiple dimensions with minimal input,resulting in instant groups of parallel,ordinate,or shaft/symmetric itemes.

Mechanical Symbols

Save time on annotation input by relying on more than 11 kinds of symbols like surface texture, feature control frame, welding symbol, datum identifier and target, taper & slope, edge symbol and so on.

Smart Balloon

Users can edit the balloon easily in the assembly drawing .The parts data are not affected while you renumber and arganize the dsordered balloon,and make your drawings beautiful appearance.

Part List and BOM

GstarCAD Mechanical supports extraction BOM data from DWG files for better reuse, promoting more efficient and accurate exchange of design data.What’s more,the balloon and list functionalities are associated with mechanical parts and keep updated when detected parts information changing.

Associative Hole Charts

Quickly create accurate hole charts that automatically up based on design chages,reducing errors associated with creating charts manually.After the user places a chart,it remains linked to the design,dynamicall updating to reflect changes and additons.

Standards-Based&Compatibility

Quickly create accurate hole charts that automatically up based on design chages,reducing errors associated with creating charts manually.After the user places a chart,it remains linked to the design,dynamicall updating to reflect changes and additons.
