Get drawings done with less effort
Learn how to become more productive at computer-aided design (CAD) using our Mech-Q engineering tools. All our engineering toolsets work seamlessly inside Autodesk’s AutoCAD ®, Bricscad and Intellicad software programs.
Mech-Q is available as a Full Engineering Suite or you can choose only the modules you need and customize it to your office.
If you don’t have CAD we offer AViCAD (an AutoCAD alternative) at a fraction of the price you would normally pay. AViCAD also supports DWG file types.
Draw 2D schematics and create 3D solids
Mech-Q is easy to use, yet it can be used as an advanced tool at the same time.
It’s a perfect fit for both beginning and experienced mechanical engineers and includes a wide array of options depending on what you need drawn.
Users can also choose between 2D drafting and 3D drafting modes. It can draw 2D isometrics, double line schematics or create complex models, all with ease.
Advanced features at your fingertips
Advanced features include the ability to create complex models and 3D designs, generate bill of material (BOM), tabulate data and create tables.
Mech-Q lets you draw the way you draw – no more wasting time doing repetitive tasks or manual drafting. It allows you to create professional-level drawings with ease. With Mech-Q you won’t need to search for pipe fittings, ducting shapes, steel beams, pipe fittings any more either. It’s all at your fingertips inside the top menubar or ribbon.
Supported CAD software programs
What's inside our CAD engineering software?
Mech-Q is a suite of programs or modules, typically used by engineers, drafters and designers in order to draw, modify and tabulate parts.
Modules include: Piping, Ducting, Structural and Mechanical (below is a list of modules included in our software suite).
The engineering software streamlines and automates repetitive tasks and greatly reduces errors associated with manual drafting. `
Includes a wide variety of pipe, fittings, flanges and valves: Welded, flanged, threaded, ductile & cast iron, Victaulic stainless, PVC … in order to creates drawings at a professional level. Choose from welded, flanged, threaded, ductile & cast iron, stainless, PVC & more.
Other advanced tools include: Isometric piping, P&ID, fabricated pipe, hangers, clamps, Vessels, pumps… Draws single line, isometric and 3D models. Equipped with Bill Of Materials (BOM) and scheduling.
» Explore our Piping Software
The Structural Software / Module is both customizable and easy to learn. Design and detail beam connections and steel shapes. Includes steel stair, ladders and more.
Get productive using a full range steel shapes (AISC, BHP, CISC, DIN, BS, RSA, JIS, IS, …) with weighted auto-BOM.
» Explore our Structural Software
Generate complex rectangular, round and flat oval ducting layouts with surprising ease.
This software tool adds insulation as required and bends design is fully customizable. Auto-Label and Bill of Materials are some of the other options available to you.

Mech-Q Piping is an excellent tool for beginners or experienced users all wrapped up in one single platform
Your support is the best. It gives me confidence to use my CAD! Great piece of software!
... I am using Mech-Q for ducting and pipework all day and every day now. I find them to be most useful, and really speed up the work ...
Mech-Q Piping is fantastic, when I draw a Flange for example, it gives me the exact dimension of the part based on what criteria I enter. When doing this by hand drafting its no comparison to what I can achieve
