Mechanical engineering is one of the engineering disciplines. It uses, apart from engineering itself, also physics and materials science fundamentals for designing, analyzing, manufacturing and maintaining the mechanical systems. Being one of the oldest as well as broadest of the engineering disciplines, the mechanical engineering field requires a clear understanding of all the core engineering-related areas, such as dynamics, mechanics, thermodynamics, structural analysis, electricity, and materials science.
Most of the mechanical engineers use different tools for completing their tasks, such as a computer-aided design, product life cycle management (for designing and analyzing manufacturing plants), industrial equipment and machinery, transport systems, heating and cooling systems, aircraft, robotics, watercraft, medical devices, etc. They may also work in the field of biomedical engineering and being involved in the branch of engineering that involves the production, the operation and the design of machinery, mechanical engineers create, develop, test and build different thermal and mechanical devices, including engines, machines, and tools.
Being involved in the fast-changing industry, mechanical engineers use computers for creating and analyzing the designs, running simulations and testing the machinery. That is why there are many mechanical engineers among all the ConceptDraw PRO users.
Having both the ConceptDraw PRO diagramming and drawing software as well as the Mechanical Engineering solution full of the pre-made examples of the mechanical drawings and stencil libraries full of the mechanical engineering-related symbols it becomes simpler to create the needed mechanical engineering drawings or assembly, parts, hydraulic and pneumatic systems’ drawings.
The Mechanical Engineering solution can be useful for many mechanical engineers as well as other engineers and designers.
There are 8 libraries containing 602 mechanical drawing symbols in the Mechanical Engineering solution.
Design Elements — Welding
Design Elements — Valve Assembly
Design Elements — Pneumatic Pumps and Motors
Design Elements — Hydraulic Pumps and Motors
Design Elements — Fluid Power Valves
Design Elements — Fluid Power Equipment
Design Elements — Dimensioning and Tolerancing
Design Elements — Bearings
There are a few samples that you see on this page which were created in the ConceptDraw PRO application by using the Mechanical Engineering solution.
Some of the solution's capabilities as well as the professional results which you can achieve are all demonstrated here on this page.
All source documents are vector graphic documents which are always available for modifying, reviewing and/or
converting to many different formats, such as MS PowerPoint, PDF file, MS Visio, and many
other graphic ones from the ConceptDraw Solution Park or ConceptDraw STORE. The Mechanical Engineering solution is available to all
ConceptDraw PRO users to get installed and used while working in the ConceptDraw PRO diagramming and drawing software.
Example 1: Mechanical Engineering — Hydraulic Circuit
This diagram was created in ConceptDraw PRO using the Hydraulic Pumps and Motors, Fluid Power Valves and Welding Libraries from the Mechanical Engineering Solution. An experienced user spent 25 minutes creating this sample.
This sample shows a mechanical engineering diagram of a hydraulic circuit. For the first time creating mechanical engineering diagrams has been turned into quick and painless process, thanks to the mechanical drawing software of ConceptDraw PRO
Example 2: Technical Drawing — Die Stacking
This diagram was created in ConceptDraw PRO using the Fluid Power Valves, Hydraulic Pumps and Motors, Fluid Power Equipment and Valve Assembly Libraries from the Mechanical Engineering Solution. An experienced user spent 30 minutes creating this sample.
This sample demonstrates the mechanical drawing. Are you finding that designing and actualising a mechanical diagram is a complex, drawn-out process? ConceptDraw PRO and its predesigned mechanical drawing symbols will help lighten your workload.
Example 3: Mechanical Engineering — Directional Control Valve
This diagram was created in ConceptDraw PRO using the Fluid Power Valves, Hydraulic Pumps and Motors, and Valve Assembly Libraries from the Mechanical Engineering Solution. An experienced user spent 10 minutes creating this sample.
This sample visualizes a Directional Control Valve. Directional control valves are the main parts in hydraulic and pneumatic machinery. It’s important to draw their schemes attentively. The mechanical design software of ConceptDraw PRO will help you.
Example 4: Mechanical Engineering — Hydraulic Schematic
This diagram was created in ConceptDraw PRO using the Fluid Power Equipment, Fluid Power Valves, and Hydraulic Pumps and Motors Libraries from the Mechanical Engineering Solution. An experienced user spent 5 minutes creating this sample.
This sample shows the Hydraulic Schematic. The basic diagram may never change, but the way it's presented is completely in your hands. A successful diagram should be bold and striking, and create an effective visualisation.
Example 5: Hydraulic Schematic Apparatus for Testing the Strength of a Hydraulic Hose Splice
This diagram was created in ConceptDraw PRO using the Valve Assembly and Fluid Power Equipment Libraries from the Mechanical Engineering Solution. An experienced user spent 10 minutes creating this sample.
This sample illustrates the simple hydraulic schematic of apparatus required for testing the strength of a hydraulic hose splice. You can see how the water passes; the components of system are indicated by numbers. For clarity you can also add a legend which explains what each number designates.
Both ConceptDraw PRO diagramming and drawing software and the Mechanical Engineering solution can help creating the
illustrations the technical documentation of an engineering projects you need. The Mechanical Engineering solution can be found in the Industrial Engineering area of ConceptDraw STORE application that can be downloaded from this site.
Make sure that both ConceptDraw PRO and ConceptDraw STORE applications are installed on your computer before you get started.
How to install
After ConceptDraw STORE and ConceptDraw PRO are downloaded and installed, you can install the Mechanical Engineering solution from the ConceptDraw STORE.
To make sure that you are doing it all right, use the pre-designed symbols from the stencil libraries from the solution to make your drawings look smart and professional. Also, the pre-made examples from this solution can be used as drafts so your own drawings can be based on them. Using the samples, you can always change their structures, colors and data.
