For about 5 months I've been working with a small electrical engineering group (4-6 guys) that does industrial automation, PLC programming & upgrades, electrical panel building, vision, some robotics, etc. We also do a very small amount of basic mechanical design work to support some special projects. But the mechanical portion is very small compared to the electrical work and is typically only one of the guys. They have been using AutoCAD LT and Draftsight to do all the schematics and panel layouts, strictly a basic 2D electronic drawing board. One guy has a personal license of Solidworks for the mechanical modeling. We looked at some other options and are likely going to AutoCAD 2020 full version. It comes with the Electrical toolset, Mechanical Toolset (including solid modeling), and a few other toolsets. The electrical toolset provides some functions that should really speed up the electrical work, including symbol libraries, I/O numbering, etc. It also takes away a lot of the manual 2D CAD labor for schematics. The mechanical solid modeling looks decent too, at least for basic structural parts. As any wise person should do, run it by the BEEB think tank before making a decision. Anyone have any experience or advice to share?
