ELITECAD Mechanics

Easy. Fast. Efficient. Professional.
The ideal all-in-one solution with the best price-performance ratio for constructors and plant designers.

Why ELITECAD Mechanics?

Highest quality, extensive functionality, innovative features, though easy-to-use with an intuitive user interface – that's ELITECAD. In addition, all our products have industry-specific advantages which excite our customers.
Flexible 2D/3D construction
From first draft to working drawing, from free form definition to 2D lines – ELITECAD Mechanics provides a flexible solution to create standard-conform manufacturing drawings with or without 3D support.
Standard-conform drawings
All our products are especially optimized for the standards and requirements of their given industry. ELITECAD Mechanics includes extensive pre-configured settings for standard-conform plan issuing. Standard parts like screws, washers, nuts, bearings, profiles, etc. provide additional security and efficiency during the construction process.
Complete mechanical construction
A wide range of technical help tools supports the users in their daily work. In addition, intelligent parametric mechanical construction parts are provided by ELITECAD. A special focus was set on labelling, dimensioning and positioning for efficient plan issuing.
Easy data exchange via countless interfaces
Collaboration and data exchange with other programs is possible through a large number of 2D and 3D import and export interfaces. Besides standards formats like DWG/DXF, IGES, SAT, STEP or VDA, models and drawings can also be directly imported from other CAD systems.
How easy is ELITECAD?
Idea
You have an idea for a project or a customer request.
Implementation
Your idea becomes reality and you create the model in only a few steps.
Finished model
The parametric model provides everything the constructor needs.
Virtual Reality
Using VRV, you can walk through and adapt your model right away.

Interfaces
ELITECAD Mechanics supports importing and exporting a large number of interfaces and file formats so you can work efficiently in your team.
Interface overview
All interfaces
DXF/DWG
The DXF/DWG import/export interface of ELITECAD enables highly flexible and configurable exchange of 2D and 3D data with countless products.
Sketchup
The SketchUp import/export-interface allows access to countless library parts. Just download the desired models from the web, for instance 3DWarehouse.
(3D) PDF
ELITECAD supports PDF generation with paper size recognition. In addition it is possible to create 3D PDF files, which allows you to share the model with people who don't have access to a CAD application.
Lumion
Create perfect images and animations from a digital building model. Importing from ELITECAD is as simple as it gets. One click and the Lumion model synchronises with ELITECAD.
IFC / BIM - Building Information Modeling
ELITECAD Mechanics provides import and export interfaces for parametric building models via IFC 4 and IFC 2x3. This allows for ideal collaboration with planners within the BIM process.
3DS
Exporting and importing 3DS files allows the usage of 3D geometry and models from 3DS Max and all other systems that can read or write this format.
