Here’s what’s new!

Thanks for your interest in Mech-Q. We are happy to announce a brand new Mech-Q (and AViCAD) release. If you are a current Mech-Q user ask us for a quote. Free updates also available if you have purchased less than 1 year ago.

Auto-Save Mech-Q Settings Feature

A recent addition is the ability to auto-save your Mech-Q settings to the drawing itself. Optionally you can manually save and load your settings via you hard drive.

The change to the way Mech-Q saves your settings, means that you could setup a Mech-Q/Acad drawing template for one spec and then other for a different spec. Each drawing will then remember its own Mech-Q setup and remembers 2D/3D draw modes, layer settings, units and more.

This new change not only improves the overall speed of Mech-Q but allows you to save your Mech-Q settings as you upgrade either your computer or Mech-Q itself.

Although there are more many ways to use this feature, just remember all Mech-Q settings are always saved to either your drawing or templates for safekeeping.

To explain how to use this feature – have a look the video below:
