The Leading Productivity Tool
Companies have many options when evaluating 3D CAD systems. There are also many different reasons for moving to 3D from 2D or switching from one 3D system to another. Reasons such as ease of use, short learning curves, compatibility with vendors, communication with 3rd parties, and the ability to easily reuse data are some of these reasons. The product that has the right combination of these features allows companies to achieve maximum productivity. With IronCAD’s Design Collaboration Suite™ (DCS) you have such a solution.
Integrated 3D and 2D Design
IRONCAD™ is the undisputed productivity leader when it comes to moving creative ideas into full production-ready 3D reality.
IRONCAD is the pioneer of a breakthrough Creative Design approach that delivers a level of design freedom unmatched in the industry today. IRONCAD is the tool of choice for 3D mechanical design engineers when deadlines are tight and a high degree of unanticipated change is to be expected. It provides a revolutionary replacement to today’s history-based parametric-only systems.
3D Design and Collaboration
INOVATE™ is a low cost, easy to use 3D desktop product for creating, modifying, interrogating and communicating 3D designs. It is the ideal 3D design collaboration tool from concept to production. Its radical drag-and-drop 3D environment delivers unmatched ease-of-use, speed, design flexibility and power making it the most productive 3D concept design and communication tool available. INOVATE bridges the gap between today’s viewer technology and a full blown CAD seat. It is perfectly suited for situations where 3D design concepts have to be verified prior to being committed to a formal detail design process. It allows the quick exploration of 3D design concepts and the communication of those ideas through photo-realistic images and realistic motion animations as part of the collaborative process.
2D Detailing and 3D Collaboration
For decades users have needed to choose between working in 2D or 3D, today there is another option! – Historically, designers have wanted to work in 2D. They prefer the ability to control and craft their drawings and to detail them clearly and efficiently. To these users, drafting is an art form, not merely a series of lines on a piece of paper. While the evolution of 3D modeling has made designing products easier for some, for many working in 3D is not a necessity but it is beneficial.
3D Configuration and Collaboration
IRONCAD COMPOSE™ is a valuable tool for communicating 3D design concepts. The download is free to everyone; from designers wishing to share their designs to a sales person presenting their products at the point of sale. Everyone in your team can read data from any CAD system, interrogate the geometry, add their commentary, configure new assemblies, and create real-time renderings and animations.
Comprehensive Native File Sharing
With IronCAD’s Design Collaboration Suite, engineers communicate more freely. Dual ACIS and Parasolid kernels allow precise, error-free import and export of native SAT and X_T files as well as common file formats like IGES, CATIA V4, and STEP (Excluding COMPOSE). Add the low-cost TRANS bundle and even access native formats such as CATIA V5/V6, Pro/E (Creo), UG/NX, SolidWorks, SolidEdge, JT, and Inventor (Support for both geometry and graphical import support).
