Baltic Yachts using IronCAD

Finnish Baltic Yachts was founded in 1973 on a radical philosophy: to create boats that incorporated the very latest thinking in yacht design and new technology. In short, they design and build boats that are faster, stronger, and lighter. They utilize high-tech materials and are constantly pioneering new construction techniques. Combining the latest carbon fiber… Read more

Unified CAD Assembly Design Environment

Many designers working on large assemblies sometimes encounter strong disconnects between how they’d ideally like to handle their CAD assembly file and how their chosen CAD platform encourages them — or even forces them — to work. With traditional CAD design systems, which construct assemblies out of separate part files, it’s nearly impossible to make… Read more
