IronCAD’s Bulk Drawing Tools Streamline Detailing Process for Metal Fabricators
(ATLANTA, Ga.) May 14, 2018 — The 3D CAD platform of choice among metal fabricators and custom machinery equipment manufacturers, IronCAD’s 2018 Product Update #1 adds features specifically designed to increase detailer productivity by streamlining the steps needed to move 3D designs into the 2D production drawings.
Key features of Product Update #1 including enhanced game-changing bulk drawing feature and a dramatically improved shrink wrap modeling simplification utility for more secure, more inclusive file sharing to support active collaboration.
With the new process improvements for the bulk drawing creation, parts and assemblies can now be selected and can store predefined templates that automatically populate the bulk creation process. This stored information can be used in conjunction with IronCAD’s powerful Catalogs of pre-made designs, speeding up the reuse of existing designs and saving countless hours that might otherwise be spent preparing designs for detailing.
“IronCAD has continued its commitment to fabricators and machinery manufacturers by extending the functionality we introduced with IronCAD 2018 to improve productivity and strengthens security when sharing data,” said Cary O’Connor, Vice President of Marketing at IronCAD. “Our core customers are able to achieve massive gains in productivity thanks to the improved bulk drawing creation process for moving from 3D to 2D, along with a streamlined interface and more advanced shrink wrapping of data for added security.”
Product Update #1’s shrink wrap enhancements include more advance preparation options for packaging up designs and reducing outputted data such as shell representations of designs, supporting secure file sharing options for diverse use cases.
Since collaborative design workflows are critical for fabricators and machinery manufactures, IronCAD 2018 Product Update #1 also imports and exports to the latest native CAD formats, supporting collaboration between design groups that use different systems.
Continuing IronCAD’s reputation as the easiest-to-learn 3D CAD platform on the market, Product Update #1 also includes usability improvements such as:
- Quick feature creation from existing geometry by simply pushing and pulling on face handles to create positive and negative shapes.
- Streamlined interface that improves access and navigation to many common commands.
- Simple reconnection tools that support IronCAD’s intelligent attachment capabilities making it easy to relocate connected elements.
