July 30, 2014

Bend, OR (PRWEB) July 30, 2014

Mechanical Engineering Software company CADavenue has just released new version of its Mech-Q product today.

The new release features a series of utilities to edit and move 3D pipe fittings including 3D steel beams and ducting elements found within Mech-Q

New software improvements include:

-- New 3D piping tools

-- More piping flexible couplings

-- Added new snapping points at fittings

-- New quick 3D Dimensioning

-- Improved 3D Bill Of Materials

-- Several improvements & bug fixes

Mech-Q is an add-on that inside your CAD application. It contains a suite of utilities which include Mechanical, Piping, Ducting & Structural modules.

For those without CAD, Mech-Q will also run in a application called AViCAD. This 2D/3D program uses an IntelliCAD based engine which has commands very similar to what you would find in AutoCAD® or LT.

The new version also includes a new toolbar (floating menu with icons) which contains the new 3D dimensioning and other editing utilities such as 3D slide, 3D rotation and a Z-height tool.

Owner Victor Abela explains, "The new 3D piping tools we have added will allow users to manipulate their layouts in 3D with ease after fittings are created, plus a whole lot more. A new 3D dimensioning tool also provides an easy way to size fittings, without having to worry about rotating or manipulating the UCS (User Coordinate System)."

Mech-Q supports all versions of AutoCAD® (R14-2015), AutoCAD LT® (2004-2015), Bricscad, Cadian, ProgeCAD, GstarCAD, AcelliCAD and many other IntelliCAD based CAD packages. A standalone application called AViCAD is also available.

CADavenue is located in North America and provides free trials to all their products. Other products include a stand-alone sheet metal flattening tool used to construct templates and patterns for fabrication and laser cutting machines.

CADavenue is open for tech support and sales questions between 8-5 M-F PST. Tel: (888) 271-7121 sales(at)cadavenue(dot)com.
