Earlier it was believed that mechanical engineering is a field where you have to only work in industry but nowadays mechanical is also becoming one of a field where you required software skills as well as industrial knowledge.
Mechanical engineers design, analyse and help manufacture mechanical tools, engines, and machines. They are employed in almost all manufacturing sectors including Heavy machineries, ship building, aerospace, automobile. They are also employedin engineering services and product design companies. They, carry out a wide range of design and analysis activities, in the product development lifecycle. Their key tasks include: Concept Sketching, 2D Design & Drafting, 3D Modeling, Prototyping, and Performance & Safety Analysis.
AutoCAD is a commercial computer-aided design (CAD) and drafting software application. AutoCAD is used across a wide range of industries, by architects, project managers, engineers, graphic designers, and many other professionals. AutoCAD supports a number of APIs for customization and automation.
SolidWorks is a solid modeler, and utilizes a parametric feature-based approach to create models and assemblies. The software is written on Parasolid-kernel. SOLIDWORKS cover all aspects of your product development process with a seamless, integrated workflow design, verification, sustainable design, communication and data management. Designers and engineers can span multiple disciplines with ease, shortening the design cycle, increasing productivity and delivering innovative products to market faster.
The Most Powerful, Flexible 3D Modeling Software in the Industry. Creo is a family or suite of design software supporting product design for discrete manufacturers and is developed by PTC. The suite consists of apps, each delivering a distinct set of capabilities for a user role within product development. It provides the broadest range of powerful yet flexible 3D CAD capabilities to accelerate the design of parts and assemblies. Unite technology, in Creo, provides breakthrough capabilities to improve productivity in multi-CAD environments. By enabling organizations to efficiently consolidate CAD systems and users to collaborate more effectively across systems.
CATIA is a multi-platform software suite for computer-aided design (CAD), computer-aided manufacturing (CAM), computer-aided engineering (CAE), PLM and 3D. CATIA facilitates collaborative engineering across disciplines around its 3DEXPERIENCE platform, including surfacing & shape design, electrical, fluid and electronic systems design, mechanical engineering and systems engineering.
3D CAD software for product development. Inventor 3D CAD software offers professional-grade 3D mechanical design, documentation and product simulation tools. Inventor features Modelling flexibility, AnyCAD data, Automation, Parametric modelling.
Computer numerical control (CNC) is the automation of machine tools by means of computers executing pre-programmed sequences of machine control commands. This is in contrast to machines that are manually controlled by hand wheels or levers, or mechanically automated by cams alone. In modern CNC systems, the design of a mechanical part and its manufacturing program is highly automated.
ANSYS Mechanical is a finite element analysis tool for structural analysis, including linear, nonlinear and dynamic studies. This computer simulation product provides finite elements to model behavior, and supports material models and equation solvers for a wide range of mechanical design problems. ANSYS Mechanical also includes thermal analysis and coupled-physics capabilities involving acoustics, piezoelectric, thermal�structural and thermo-electric analysis.
Automation has been achieved by various means including mechanical, hydraulic, pneumatic, electrical, electronic devices and computers, usually in combination. Complicated systems, such as modern factories, airplanes and ships typically use all these combined techniques. Mechanical and automation engineers are mainly focus on designing and manufacturing of machines. Engineers design and assemble engines and power plants, structures and vehicles of all sizes and deals with use of machines, control systems and information technologies.
Mechatronics is a multidisciplinary field of science that includes a combination of mechanical engineering, electronics, computer engineering, telecommunications engineering, systems engineering and control engineering. Mechatronics is a approach aiming at the synergistic integration of mechanics, electronics, control theory, and computer science within product design and manufacturing, in order to improve and/or optimize its functionality.
