Smarter 3D Design
You can learn IronCAD in a week, and design twice as fast as conventional 3D CAD software.
Put simply, get far more return on investment from every minute you use CAD.
Hundreds of thousands of users around the world.
From multi-billion-dollar corporations to one-person-garages.
“I have used pretty much all of the popular and expensive CAD systems, such as ProE, SolidWorks, Solid Edge, Catia, Delcam products, etc, but none were as easy, or as fast as IronCAD is. More things just get done in less time, period!”
Mike Walls, Microplanet.
“We have replaced both AutoCAD and SolidWorks with IronCAD. When it comes to 3D-design, we do see a big advantage by using IronCAD. …Our experience has been that we design faster and easier compared to our earlier solution…”
Patrik Kärrvall, Hexagon Metrology.
“There are many features of IronCAD that have made our company much more productive in design, drawing, and production processes. These include and are not limited to the Triball, modelling with preset shapes and configurations, virtually no sketching required, ease of producing 3D workshop drawings from the Scene in multiples, exporting faces to DXF etc.”
Sean Brunt, Metwest Engineering.
“We switched from one of the most common parametric mainstream 3D CAD programs to IronCAD. We have not regretted this for a second. The change has saved both time and money – clearly IronCAD has increased our profitability.”
Daniel Erlandsson, Lerocon Weld & Robotics.
“After an exhaustive search, one CAD system stood high above the rest: IronCAD. It was quite astounding how IronCAD fit in so perfectly with all the needs that we had identified."
Rick Dorrington, Aero-safe Technologies.
“IronCAD has made the design process much more efficient and effective allowing our designers more flexibility and freedom in their work than ever before. We could never be this efficient in Pro/E or other constraint based systems.”
“What I really appreciate about IronCAD is that it works so freely and easily, it’s a really big difference in approach, more logically laid out. The ability to have as many parts in a single file makes working and designing much easier, especially given the complexity of the machines we design. If I later choose to have a part saved out to a separate file, I have that option, but it’s my choice."
“From the time we started using IronCAD as our 3D CAD system, we have saved time and money. We believe IronCAD is clearly the most user-friendly program because you do not need to think about the program; instead you can concentrate on the design. The user interface, together with TriBall and handles technology, places IronCAD in its own class of 3D modelers."
“We use IronCAD’s dynamic modeling in machine design and then use IronCAD’s parametric technology for our dimension variant packaging. We have not seen any other program that lets us work this way.”
Urban Olars, NEFAB.
Drag & Drop Modelling
IronCAD’s drag and drop catalog system is your 3D palette for useful CAD data. Whether it’s parts, features, tools, materials, animations and more, you can drag and drop them in to save them and out to use them at any time. It’s lightning quick and incredibly customisable.
Skip The Mating Process
Because you can design everything in one file, all your components are already in the right place fitting perfectly. There’s no need to mate components unless you’d like them to have movement, in which case just mate the ones with movement and leave the rest.
Work With DWGs & DXFs
IronCAD has two built-in drafting packages, one for drawing views in paper space and one for more advanced drafting, similar to AutoCAD. You can work natively with DWGs and DXFs and everything links back to 3D, updating instantly so you never have to redraw something again.
Fast & Easy Sheet Metal
A whole catalog of drag & drop sheet metal tools so you can design quickly and intuitively. Then unfold your part and get bend dimensions and a flat pattern ready to be sent for production.
IronCAD’s IntelliShape technology lets you push & pull to precisely adjust complex CAD geometry, which can be customised by simply typing values or even adding complex parameters. You can use our pre-made shapes or build your own to use anytime.
Master Imported Parts
Multiple powerful direct editing tools so you can easily edit imported “dumb solid” CAD models, and even use the patented Triball or shape catalogs on the imported parts.
Turn Off History Dependency.
There’s no need to worry about deleting a feature that is above other features in the tree, and you have freedom to re-use CAD data at will without worrying how it was originally made. You can skip traditional history dependency that makes it hard to make changes.
Modular Smart Assembly
Our SmartAssembly technology lets you set “magnetic” snap points so modular components automatically position themselves when dragged from a catalog. This can be used by sales-people on site to provide instant custom CAD models with associated manufacturing details and pricing.
Patented Dual Kernels
The only system in the world with patented dual kernel technology providing better import/export capabilities with and providing a backup kernel to solve complex geometry.
Stay In 3D
IronCAD lets you stay in 3D longer, giving you a better overall perspective on your design. There’s far less need to go into 2D sketches, which keeps you designing and working in 3D. You still have the option to go into a 2D sketch whenever you like, but staying in 3D helps you keep your mind on the design.
Award Winning TriBall
The TriBall is one of the most powerful and useful CAD tools in the world. Move, copy, pattern, and link features, parts, and assemblies all in 3D with a few clicks. Get to know the award-winning TriBall and see why it’s one of the most loved tools in the mechanical engineering CAD industry.
FEA & CFD Tools
Analyse your design from inside the IronCAD interface, then make design iterations and reanalyze them in seconds. IronCAD has free integrated FEA & CFD tools which can also be upgraded to more advanced versions when needed. MultiPhysics for IronCAD.
What are you waiting for?
IronCAD likely presents the opportunity to significantly increase efficiency and therefore profitability of your company. All for just a few days training. The sooner you start the sooner you’ll see the benefits.
We are happy for IronCAD to be directly compared to any CAD system in the world, we can even help you do the comparison, many of our team (and customers) have detailed experience in a range of CAD systems. We are confident in the capabilities of IronCAD to outperform its competitors.
