Q - question

Enable/Disable structure for Mechanical drawings.

A - answer AutoCAD Mechanical allows to set "mechanical structure" for its drawings (grouping components and assemblies). This option is available in the Options dialog, the tab AM:Structure - "Enable structure for new drawings".

IF you want to set this option from a script or a macro, use the LISP command (to disable or to enable):

(gencfgset "gen@CIT@Enable Structure" 0)  
(gencfgset "gen@CIT@Enable Structure" 1)
