What is Mechanical CAD Software (MCAD)?

Mechanical CAD Software Definition

Mechanical CAD (MCAD), also referred to as mechanical design automation (MDA), software enables mechanical engineers to create product designs with accurate and detailed technical drawings (2D or 3D models), and specifications for engineering and manufacturing. MCAD output will convey information including materials, processes, dimensions, and tolerances for hardware or mechanical structures. MCAD software is used across many industries including high-tech or consumer electronics, automotive, and medical devices.
