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

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… Read more

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… Read more

Cooling towers are everywhere. From power plants to hospitals, they provide heat dissipation for air conditioning systems, reactors, mining equipment and more. Since 1958, Lakeside Cooling Towers has built these critical structures for clients located anywhere from New Zealand to Sudan. The consummate CAD collaboration tool, IronCAD has revolutionized Lakeside’s development cycle by streamlining design,… Read more

Parametric CAD Design Using Push and Pull Handles

Struggling with building parametric assemblies in CAD software and having to constantly work in an Excel-like environment to drive the design? Rethink the approach using IronCAD and push-and-pull handles that can dynamically drive an assembly parametrically. IronCAD is designed to be more interactive and to be more intuitive than other 3D CAD systems and this… Read more
