Get drawings done with less effort

Learn to become more productive at CAD using our engineering tools called Mech-Q. Our software works seamlessly inside Autodesk’s AutoCAD ®, Bricscad, and Intellicad software programs. Mech-Q is built by engineers and for engineers.

The drawing utilities are available as a Full Engineering Suite, or you can choose only the modules you need and customize them for your office.

If you don’t have CAD, we offer AViCAD (an AutoCAD alternative) at a fraction of the price you would typically pay. AViCAD also supports DWG file types. AViCAD also includes Mech-Q at no extra cost.

Draw 2D schematics and create 3D solids

Mech-Q is easy to use and can create 2D and ISO schematics. It can also be used as an advanced 3D tool.

Users can also choose between 2D and 3D drafting modes. The software can easily draw 2D isometrics, double-line schematics, or complex models.

The Ducting and Structural software also works similarly to the Piping software. After selecting the spec you need, points are entered to define the route, and then the parts are created as you work from point to point.

It’s a perfect fit for beginning and experienced engineers and includes many options depending on what you need to be drawn. CAD training videos are also available to get you started right away.

Advanced features at your fingertips

Advanced features include creating complex models and 3D designs, generating a bill of material (BOM), tabulating data, and creating tables. 

Mech-Q lets you draw how you draw – no more wasting time doing repetitive tasks or manual drafting. It allows you to create professional-level engineering drawings with ease. With Mech-Q, you won’t need to search for pipe fittings, ducting shapes, steel beams, or pipe fittings. All the tools are accessible inside the top menubar or ribbon.

CAD Software Built For Engineers

Engineers, drafters, and designers typically use Mech-Q’s suite of utilities or modules to draw, modify, and tabulate parts. 

Modules include Piping, Ducting, Structural, and Mechanical (below is a list of modules in our software suite).

The CAD engineering software will streamline and automate repetitive tasks and dramatically reduce errors associated with manual drafting.  `

This includes various pipes, fittings, flanges, and valves: welded, flanged, threaded, ductile, and cast iron, Victaulic stainless, and PVC. This module creates accurate drawings and allows engineers to create drawings at a professional level.

Other advanced tools include Isometric piping, P&ID, fabricated pipe, hangers, clamps, Vessels, pumps… Draws single-line, isometric and 3D models. Tools are equipped with a Bill Of Materials (BOM) and auto-labeling

» Explore our Piping Software

The Structural Software / Module is customizable and easy to learn. It allows you to design and detail beam connections and steel shapes. It also includes steel stairs, ladders, and other engineering tools.

Get productive using a full range of steel shapes (AISC, BHP, CISC, DIN, BS, RSA, JIS, IS, …) with weighted auto-BOM.

» Explore our Structural Software

Allows mechanical engineers to create complex rectangular, round, and flat oval ducting layouts with surprising ease.

This software tool adds insulation as required and the bend design is fully customizable. Auto-Label and Bill of Materials are some of the other options available to you.

» Explore our Ducting Software

Using an intuitive user interface, engineers and CAD users can choose from a wide assortment of mechanical symbols, an extensive range of fasteners, bearings & housings, gears, material handling equipment, springs, shafts utility, Bill of Materials included.

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 is no comparison to what
I can achieve. Mech-Q Piping is fantastic,

Our CAD software does all the heavy lifting

AViCAD is very AutoCAD-like and creates DWGs natively. It includes a wide range of tools, including Mech-Q engineering software.
Mech-Q’s engineering suite includes four modules: piping, Ducting, Structural, and Mechanical. It supports both 2D and 3D and automatically generates BOM.
Unfolding / sheet metal software that creates 2D drawing templates from 3D Shapes. There is no drafting, and CAD is not required.

Really speeds up the work

I am using Mech-Q for ducting and
pipework all day and every day now.
find them to be most useful, and really
speed up the work
