Sometimes it's necessary to add to your reports several drawings in order to facilitate the comprehension of the calculus and data. LaTeX can solve this issue without using any external software but only through the Graphics packages. I show you how TikZ-MEC, a custom library written by Francesco Clemente, can help in the description of mechanical problems related to (internally and externaly) loaded structures.
