ATLANTA, GA. May 31th, 2012 – IronCAD, LLC, the leading provider of design productivity solutions, today announced the immediate availability of IRONCAD COMPOSE. IronCAD customers around the globe have always been extremely productive within their modeling and design departments. Many customers today use IRONCAD to design products, but also a growing number have adopted it as the tool of choice to create, one off, customer specific assemblies using their standard parts and components. In industries such as Factory Automation, Office Furniture, Kitchen Layout, Shop Layout, Exhibition Stand Design, Shelving and Racking Solutions and even Boatbuilding and Yacht Fit Out, IRONCAD has always led the way, with its powerful tools for assembly and configuration
Today with the introduction of the new IRONCAD COMPOSE product, these companies have been able to expand the potential for their users, by providing a new tool to allow anyone in the workgroup to collaborate and work effectively, referencing the company’s core design data.
IRONCAD COMPOSE offers all the functionality you would expect from a basic viewer, but a lot more. COMPOSE is a tool that can be used across the organization, from a point of sale configuration and demonstration tool, to a viewer for use in manufacturing.
- Simple Viewing - It can open and manipulate all standard IRONCAD file formats (and with the low cost add-on translator, can also open files from all mainstream CAD products) and can take measurements and interrogate the file structure.
- Sales Configuration – Enables users the ability to simply drag and drop parts, scale and manipulate parts within the scene to create a unique customer specific assemblies. COMPOSE includes IRONCAD’s powerful SmartAssembly technology, so rules and intelligence can be built in to the parts from the outset. The program can then produce a simple output such as the pricing information required to create a proposal.
- Compelling Presentation - It also provides powerful real-time and photorealistic rendering and even animation allowing users to create compelling presentations with fly through motions, allowing sales and marketing teams to really get buy in from their prospects.
- Seamless Collaboration – Using a standard set of tools and shared data from sales right through design to manufacturing ensures that there are no opportunities for errors or miscommunication. COMPOSE, allows the CAD department to take their data outside the drawing office in a safe and controlled manner.
This powerful new tool is also remarkably simple to learn and to use. Incorporating IRONCAD’s unique catalog structure and powerful TriBall positioning tools, COMPOSE can be picked up by anyone and with the integrated video tutorials, makes learning a matter of minutes.
For existing IRONCAD customers, this provides a unique opportunity to share data with a wider audience at no cost. They can even provide the COMPOSE product to their prospects and customers set up with all their own standard catalog parts.
Engineers using other CAD solutions are also welcome to take up the challenge and try IRONCAD COMPOSE for free. Simply download a trial of IRONCAD and use it to import your geometry and create your own catalog of parts. Then using COMPOSE, start sharing your data inside and outside your organization.
