MEGARA (Multi-Espectrografo en GTC de Alta Resolucion para Astronomia) is the future optical Integral-Field Unit (IFU) and Multi-Object Spectrograph (MOS) for the GTC 10.4m telescope. This contribution summarizes the current mechanical design of the spectrograph and the adopted solutions for the mechanisms and the opto-mechanical components.
