Library of standard and unified elements

  • Fasteners;
  • Standard profiles;
  • Reamers;
  • Graphic symbols for circuit elements;
  • Technological sketches;
  • Elements of machine accessories;
  • Parts and assemblies of mechanical gears, bearings, shafts and sockets;

Parameterized design and technological elements database

Design and technological database contains a large collection of parametric and object-dependent elements, including three-dimensional ones.

When you change parameters of one part, all associated object-dependent parts change automatically, and in accordance with their database values. This is a powerful tool for multivariate design, which guarantee to improve the design quality.

  • Formats and stamps;
  • Editor of technical requirements and specifications.
  • Tolerances of form and plane positions;
  • Surface texture signs;
  • Views, cuts, sections, breaks;
  • Auto-sorting letter denotations of drawing elements;
  • Gradient symbols;
  • Fixed joint symbols;
  • Marking and branding;
  • Hole tables;
  • Special arrays;
  • Cross-reference of drawing denotations to corresponding elements in technical requirements;
