IronCAD LLC has released version 2016 of its IronCAD Design Collaboration Suite (DCS) of 2D and 3D design, detailing, configuration and collaboration applications. This iteration has major enhancements for the fabrication and assembly sector. According to the company, noticeable developments are available for sheet metal and IronCAD’s smart design capabilities. Additionally, a new Mechanical add-in provides increased utilities for design operations, the company states.
With the 2016 version, IronCAD’s sheet-metal functionality introduces a new Sketched Bend command that offers users the ability to create more complex bending operations. The company adds that users can import and use sheet metal data from third parties as if it were native to IronCAD.
