In this post i am sharing a list of Software, including CAD, Thermal analysis, FEMs and other services or tools that can be used in Mechanical Engineering. Some of them are free or subjected to purchase to use them fully functionally. As at the first step I have try to list all the CAD software. If I am missing some software to mention, than surely you can help me by informing me about that CAD, thermal software.

    Before entering into the discussion regarding Engineering Drawing Software, we should take a look at the history of engineering drawing. In past days engineers used to draw manually with the help of drafter and pencil on a drawing sheet. It was too time-consuming. When any fault occurs in that drawing, they need to replace it by drawing it completely once again.

    plz suggest me

    1. Waqas Ahmad Avatar

      i personally prefer creo/ solidworks over autocad. i didn’t use NX cad/ CAM(may some reader will give suggestions about NX). CAD module of Ansys is not as polished as creo/ solidworks but it is good in doing analysis of your model with different scenario. you can use the combination of two or more softwares from above list. i use Creo + Ansys combination for my work. you can try Solidworks to perform CAD modeling and analysis. or use combination CAD software + Analysis software.

    1. Stephen Avatar

      My brother has been in mechanical engineering for more the 20 years. The only software he has work on is Catia 3,4, and 5. it is a safe bet that CATIA, Solid work and NX are the best software’s for you to start on when working it this field.

    I have to go in desigining. I had done with catia, pro e, auto cad, solid works.

    1. Waqas Ahmad Avatar

      Its good you have done a lot in modeling. now you should learn doing analysis. for this purpose you can use Ansys, Multiphysics, Abaqus if you intend to use commercial software. there are some free software based on open source. like salome, open-foam.

    Example topic for Master’s : Design and analysis of Turbo charger, Design and analysis of engine etcc..

    Can you please suggest me which software would be regarded as the elite one, I will then accordingly select the topic for my research which uses that software..

    1. Waqas Ahmad Avatar

      Waalikumusalam Afzal Khan.
      it will depends on your project. some software are specialized in doing some task and some handle them generally. i have used Ansys and it does good job. i haven’t done mechanism analysis in this software. actually i didn’t find it yet. for this purpose creo parametric will be better.
      i found ease in doing design optimization based on required output in ansys.

      Creo (formally Pro engineer) is stronger than catia due to its ease in use. i haven’t use abacus that’s why i can not compare ansys and abacus.

    Thank you….

    1. Waqas Ahmad Avatar

      right now if you are working as Assistant Professor then you may have chance to approach different companies through your projects. this is one way mean you do something very good in relevant projects and companies may be interested in you. Right now i think you may have better exposure about those companies then me, what they are and where they are. You may have to increase your skills so you can analyze your design with some failure theories and through computer simulation. this will boost your chance to get hired.

    1. Waqas Ahmad Avatar

      Solidworks, Creo parametric and Ansys. these are gaints int the fields you mentioned. Solid works also include CFD module while creo parametric has structural analysis module only. Ansys although much more mature in analysis but as it lacks in designing. with solid works you will have more opportunities in industry of different foreign countries as compared to others.

      Hi Jayavel, as you are in first year of mechanical engineering you probably don’t have to learn any of these software. after completing your manual engineering drawing course you can start with solid works, creo parametric, auto-cad etc. which one your university/collage recommend to you. for your own learning purpose i suggest you to start with creo parametric

    thanking you sir..

    1. Waqas Ahmad Avatar

      it can be done in most of the CAD software. all you need is some advanced help in this regard. As i am using Creo Parametric right now so there is module for manufacturing in creo parametric there you can get results for your desired problem.

      Dear Opeyemi every thing is linked. You can find C++ more useful when you are trying to formulate or automate some of your process. In CFD you can use C++ a lot. Although now a days Matlab is preferred. web designing is simply the part of learning some other field.

      For design purpose you should go for Creo parametric and beside it i will recommend you to use either ansys or abaqus.

    i am pursuing my B TECH bt i want to learn cad cam but i am confused from where i should start.

      first of you need to select the design software and then you may need to know some basics of CAM. i will suggest you to go for Creo Parametric. it is quite easy to learn and you can easily perform your CAD_CAM work on it.solid works is also a good option.

      try Ansys or Abaqus that will enhance your skills as a Design engineer. I am sure you will find them very useful.

    Am a fresh graduate in mechanical, i know AutoCAD, but i need advice on the next software i should learn as a beginer. Pls help.

      you should go for either Creo parametric (formally Pro/Engineer) or solid works. creo parametric is very powerful PLM software but solid works has its own benefits. i have used both of them and both works fine but i find creo much more easy than solid-works.

      Thank you Osman for your suggestions. One thing i would like to mention that PTC has changed the name (actually it’s philosophy) of ProEngieener to Creo Parametric. i have updated the post accordingly to remove any doubt about ProE and added your suggestion too.
