Mechanical Drawing Symbols
Working as a mechanic being responsible for making the appropriate drawings, including technical ones, working with ventilating, heating or air conditioning, you may find it exhausting creating all of schemes by hand using the ruler, for example. In this case we can recommend to download ConceptDraw DIAGRAM which is professional software that can make your life simpler and help you to achieve your goals at work in your business.
Mechanical systems drawing is a type of technical drawing that shows information about heating, ventilating, and air conditioning. It is a powerful tool that helps analyze complex systems. These drawings are often a set of detailed drawings used for construction projects; it is a requirement for all HVAC work. They are based on the floor and reflected ceiling plans of the architect. After the mechanical drawings are complete, they become part of the construction drawings, which is then used to apply for a building permit. They are also used to determine the price of the project.
ConceptDraw DIAGRAM diagramming and vector drawing software extended with Mechanical Engineering solution from the Engineering area of ConceptDraw Solution Park provides a set of drawing tools and predesigned mechanical drawing symbols for fast and easy design various mechanical engineering diagrams, drawings and schematics.
Example 1. Mechanical Drawing Symbols — Fluid Power Equipment Library
Mechanical Engineering Solution offers 602 commonly used mechanical drawing symbols and objects which are professionally designed and grouped in 8 libraries:
The vector stencils library "Bearings" contains 59 symbols of ball bearings, roller bearings, shafts, springs, gears, hooks, spindles, and keys. Use it to design engineering drawings of machine tools and mechanical devices.
- Dimensioning and Tolerancing
The vector stencils library "Dimensioning and Tolerancing" contains 45 symbols of geometric dimensions and mechanical tolerances, geometric symbols, callouts, and text boxes and inserts. Use these geometric dimensioning and tolerancing shapes to create annotated mechanical drawings.
- Fluid Power — Equipment
he vector stencils library "Fluid Power Equipment" contains 113 symbols of hydraulic and pneumatic equipment including pumps, motors, air compressors, cylinders, meters, gauges, and actuators. Use it to design fluid power and hydraulic control systems.
- Fluid Power — Valves
The vector stencils library "Fluid Power Valves" contains 93 symbols of pre-made hydraulic and pneumatic valves, including directional control valves, flow control valves, pressure control valves, and electrohydraulic and electropneumatic valves.
- Hydraulic Pumps and Motors
The vector stencils library "Hydraulic Pumps and Motors" contains 74 symbols of hydraulic pump vector stencils, hydraulic motor symbols for engineering drawings of fluid power and hydraulic control systems.
- Pneumatic Pumps and Motors
The vector stencils library "Pneumatic Pumps and Motors" contains 39 symbols of pneumatic pumps, motors and pump-motors for designing the engineering drawings of pneumatic circuits.
- Valve Assembly
The vector stencils library "Valve Assembly" contains 141 symbols of pressure and flow regulators, flow direction indicators, controls, and symbols to design flow paths of control valves. Use these valve assembly shapes to design the engineering drawings of hydraulic and pneumatic valve assemblies in fluid power systems.
The vector stencils library "Welding" contains 38 welding joint symbols to identify fillets, contours, resistance seams, grooves, surfacing, and backing. Use it to indicate welding operations on working drawings.
All these predesigned objects are vector, so you can resize them without loss of quality, change their color to make your mechanical drawing more interesting, bright and attractive.

To design your own Mechanical Drawing in minutes, follow the next steps:
- create new ConceptDraw document,
- drag the required objects from the libraries,
- arrange and connect these objects,
- type the text and apply colors, if needed.
Example 3. Mechanical Engineering Diagram — Hydraulic Circuits
This mechanical engineering diagram was created in ConceptDraw DIAGRAM software using the mechanical drawing symbols from the libraries of Mechanical Engineering Solution and shows the schemes of hydraulic circuits. An experienced user spent 25 minutes creating this sample.
Use the Mechanical Engineering Solution for ConceptDraw DIAGRAM software to create your own mechanical engineering diagrams quick, easy and effective.
All source documents are vector graphic documents. They are available for reviewing, modifying, or converting to a variety of formats (PDF file, MS PowerPoint, MS Visio, and many other graphic formats) from the ConceptDraw STORE. The Mechanical Engineering Solution is available for all ConceptDraw DIAGRAM or later users.

Sometimes, when it is difficult to create a functional space plan or to rearrange existing one, the art of interior design comes in. It doesn't matter, if you need a cozy bedroom or an office layout plan, you should use appropriate tools to make your design great.
While making a floor plan of a new office it could be useful to apply some design elements such as furniture and office equipment. This diagram presents an office furniture objects that can be used for office interior design planning, or making office furniture and equipment layouts. This vector stencils library is supplied with ConceptDraw Office Layout Plans solution. It contains more then 30 vector objects of office interior for making office floor plans including an office space layout plans and furniture arrangement.

Organizing process is the process of creating the organizational structure of an enterprise. The organizing process consists of several stages. First, you need to divide the organization into departments, respectively to strategies, and then establish relationships of authority. After that, managing director delegates his rights and authorities.

Nodes of any computer network are somehow organized in a hierarchy or a layout. Some of the common layouts like star network topology are more reliable and some like ring topology withstand high loads better. It is also important to distinguish logical topologies from physical.
This diagram represents a typical view of the star network topology. The star network topology is one of the most frequently used network topologies in the majority of office and home networks. It is very popular because of its low cost and the easy maintenance. The plus of the star network topology is that if one computer on the local network is downed, this means that only the failed computer can not send or receive data. The other part of the network works normally. The minus of using star network topology is that all computers are connected to a single point-switch, or hub. Thus, if this equipment goes down, the whole local network comes down.

While studying, many of the students encounter the necessity of remaking class projects, over and over. To facilitate this process you can use special electrical and telecom plan software, which helps altering projects in several clicks. Using templates will fasten your work, and you will have more free time.
This sample represents an electrical and telecommunication floor plan. Electrical and telecom floor plans contain a floor plan , on which imposed the layout of electrical, and telecommunications equipment. They shows electrical and telecom details regarding the current floor of a building: lightening, fixtures, wires, outlets, circuit panels, etc. Using of standart notation of electrical and telecommunication symbols makes the plan understandable for engineers, architects, constructors, specialist in electricity and telecommunications.
