Have you ever found that the CAD assembly files you’re working on simply get too big to be manageable? Maybe your partners are sending you large files to import. Or maybe you export files that are simply too big for suppliers or customers to handle. Worse yet, maybe the design files you’re working on —…

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…

IronCAD Gold

“To sum up my experience of IronCAD, it exceeded my expectations and left me wanting more.” –Phil Foley, Contributor to Design World IronCAD is an MCAD product that is unique in its intuitive design philosophy incorporating drag-and-drop functionality, push-and-pull shape modification, and a non-restrictive history-based design process. New users find IronCAD a bit strange at…

“IronCAD is a remarkable product that’s been leading the industry for two decades.” —Ralph Grabowski, Design Engineering IronCAD 2018 continues to place advancements in productivity as it primary objective and strives to change the way design in 3D is done today. Ralph Grabowski’s article for Design Engineering captures IronCAD’s history of innovation and highlights the…

Fundamentally Better Way to Design in 3D for Equipment Manufacturers Today’s engineers are involved in a design process that incorporates feedback from other departments and customers throughout a product’s lifecycle. Often this requires shorter delivery times from bidding proposals through to manufacturing. They need to start new projects quickly and iterate through many design alternatives…

Example of aluminum extrusions for structural design

All extrusion profiles used in structural design are not created equal, nor are the designs of the structures made up of the extrusions. Nevertheless, many CAD solutions on the market today provide standard tools for the design of aluminum extrusions and the construction of the structures made up of extrusions. On the other hand, CAD…
