A new Mech-Q version has just been released. Mech-Q now fully compatible with AutoCAD 2011 Full Version!
We have also release Mech-Q for AutoCAD LT 2011, both 32 bit and 64 bit are available!
Mech-Q is also fully compatible with Windows Vista & Windows 7 – Both 32 and 64 bit operating systems.
The latest release of MechQ is largely a Maintenance Update release. Several minor improvements and bug fixing in:
- Mech-Q Piping
- Mech-Q Mechanical
- Mech-Q Structural
- ASVIC and CADSTA
Please note: following the demise of drcauto late 2009. ASVIC no longer use drcauto’s LT Toolkit with Mech-Q. We now use the new advanced CADSTA Tools which allows LISP to run in LT. All new versions of Mech-Q LT versions from now (2006-2011+) will be using CADSTA Tools.
Customers that are still using an old version of Mech-Q with LTToolkit should now upgrade to Mech-Q.
Did you know you can also rent our engineering software? This is a great alternative if you need MechQ today but cannot afford the full investment right away.
You can rent MechQ for periods of 30 days all the way up to a year. When you are ready to purchase Mech-Q we will apply the rental price towards your permanent licensing. A 10% processing fee will also be applied to the balance due.

AutoCAD 2012 now ships with a new Content Explorer. Much like Design Center you can now search network locations to find your block libraries. AutoCAD 2012 also indexes your libraries which dramatically speeds up searches.
In addition, Autodesk had added a new interface is added for Autodesk Exchange with online resources, help files, and videos. Also added is AutoCAD WS , an online sharing and collaboration website.
Auto-Command Complete has also been added . Just start typing what you are looking for and commands appear as you type more letters. If you’re one to use the command like this will save lots of time spent typing.
The new Array functionality allows to maintain and edit a set of relationships between arrayed objects. For example, you can modify the number of rows or columns in a object grouping and update the layout very quickly. In addition it integrates the Divide or Measure command and updates the drawing accordingly.
Improved grip options have also been added. New features have been added spending upon the object type you happen to hover over. For example, new grips for Dimensions allow you to flip arrows, adjust text position and so forth.
