Depending on where you live in the world, it is likely that your company has been forced to temporarily transition to a remote workforce due to the circumstances of the COVID-19 pandemic. Different industries have been hit harder than others and many of our users are working from home now as a result of the threat posed by the COVID-19 virus and the need for social distancing.
The business world has already been gravitating toward a hybrid mix of remote and traditional work environments. However, engineering professionals have not had the option to work remotely due to the need for high-end work stations or mixups with sharing file-based design data, it’s just not worth it.
Here are some tip on how engineering teams can take advantage of IronCAD’s Design Collaboration Suite and adapt to changing work environments
Productive 3D CAD Design
First, the IronCAD DCS enables great design and collaboration as we all adjust to a new reality of working from home or away from the office. Accelerate your design process from concept to production with integrated, intuitive tools in one easy-to-use interface. In IronCAD, you can use the patented TriBall productivity tool. The TriBall has become famous for its huge benefit to CAD productivity over the years and continues to be one of the most productive and useful single tools in any 3D CAD system. Another boost to your productivity while at home is IronCAD’s Single Scene Enviroment. Using the single scene, file management is reduced and allows users to keep assembly components in minimal files for sharing. Also, with the aid of the Catalogs, users can share common components in a catalog that can be shared among the teams.
Embrace Better Tools
IronCAD’s patented design tools keep you in 3D and let you do things that seem like magic to traditional 3D CAD users. Take your CAD model and turn it into a breathtaking realistic image with accurate materials, in minutes. You can even use IronCAD’s SmartAssembly technology to create intelligent auto-positioning parts and assemblies. So when you drop a part out, it automatically positions itself and resizes if needed. SmartAssembly can even be used on an iPad in the field to create customized modular assemblies in seconds, you can even add prices to components and get a complete summary of the project in seconds.
Do Less With More
Usually, traditional 3D CAD software can often take twice the amount of time as IronCAD to do the same job. The overall speed of IronCAD often enables the same job to be done in half the time of a traditional system. This is due to IronCAD’s unique workflow and design methodology, which skip a lot of steps that are required in traditional software. Imagine the time and money saved when you double the amount of work that can be done in the same period of time.
IronCAD remains committed to helping you to be productive outside the office, whether it be with assisting you and your team to setup IronCAD DCS on your home computers or by providing you the best-in-class CAD support so that you can maximize the full potential of our software while you work from home.
