New in Mechanica

Version 22

The Broken section view command allows you to automatically obtain images of database items such as keyways and center holes on shafts. On parts and flanges, this command can be used to make half cuts. On the bottoms and shells with reduced dimensions, their thickness can be shown.
When creating a broken section, all database items that fall within its frame are shown in section. In this case, if the database item does not have a section view, its normal view will be displayed.
When using geometry that falls into a local section, it is reshaped by the Refresh view frame button or by mcregenobj command.


When working with sheet models, the ability to create a flat view as a separate body is implemented. This functionality gives you more freedom when drawing from sheet metal 3D models. Flat drawings can now be drawn in two states simultaneously: unbended and bent, while maintaining associativity with the 3D model.



The properties of fastener parts have been worked out.
For old standards, the following properties have been added:
  • Thread direction
  • Thread tolerance field
  • Material
  • Strength class/group
  • Type/grade of steel
  • Coating
  • Coating thickness

For new standards, the following properties have been added:
  • Material
  • Strength class
  • Coating
  • Coating element
  • Coating thickness
  • Finishing of the coating
  • Coating method
  • Coating lubrication
  • Duration of trials
The file to replace the singular with the plural is added. This file named SpecRecsGroupingNameReplace.txt is installed in the C:\ProgramData\Nanosoft\nanoCAD x64 22.0\NanoMechanical\UserTemplates\en-US folder and is available for users to modify in order to add own words that should be changed during grouping. If, when grouping specification lines, you come across a replacement word (for example, "Screw"), then it is replaced with a substitute word (for example, "Screws"). The file’s action also applies to custom grouping of lines with $$ tags.

Additional specification templates with the customer's stamp have been made for all specification templates available in the database (simple, group type A and type B, group type A up to 3 versions and plasma). Columns have been added in these templates for the customer sign, decision numbers, approval years, and customer index.


Materials according to EN, DIN and ASTM with the possibility of their designation both by chemical composition or brand, and by numbers.

Version 21

Mechanica has transitioned to a new materials database management system that takes into account user wis list items. The new database includes elements from the general database of objects, as well as these improvements over the old one: 

  • More complex and varied materials

  • Custom materials

  • Multi-line notes for materials

Mechanica’s Hole fill tool improves the conversion to threaded holes:

  • Hole diameters becomes the outer diameter of the threads

  • Internal thread diameters depend on the snap selection 

  • Names of metric threads are set

The Tables of holes tool now constructs the left coordinate system of holes.

  • Dimensioning in UCSes is corrected.

  • Symbols for surfaces are corrected.
