Creating Mechanical Engineering Drawings

You can use the mechanical engineering templates to create part and assembly drawings for manufactured products as well as fluid power and valve assemblies and equipment. Part and assembly drawings and hydraulic system schematics don’t necessarily have much in common outside of Visio Professional, but on the drawing page, you use the shapes in much the same way. Many of the shapes include intelligent shortcuts for creating specific types and sizes of components, so you don’t have to draw them yourself. For example, the drawing tool shapes help you draw precise circles, arcs, and other geometry. Nuts, bolts, springs, washers, and other shapes include custom properties for specifying size, tolerances, and other attributes.

Using the Part and Assembly Drawing Template

Part or detail drawings show each part contained in a product. Assembly drawings show how the parts fit together. The Part And Assembly Drawing template is a catch-all of mechanical engineering symbols for welding, springs, bearings, fasteners, and a variety of annotation and dimensioning shapes. You can draw parts, as Figure 27-1 shows, and include precise dimensioning instructions with engineering dimension line shapes.
