IronCAD, a provider of design productivity solution, has released version 2016 of its software. This iteration has major enhancements for the fabrication and assembly sector. According to the company, noticeable developments are available for sheet metal, smart design capabilities and a new Mechanical add-in.
New sheet metal capabilities offer speed, ease of use and in-place design behaviors to create more complex bending operations with a new sketched bend command. Users can also import and use sheet metal data from customers or suppliers.
The new Mechanical add-in has intelligent tools for fabricators, bill of material generation and more. IronCAD 2016 also has smart design tools known as Smart eBehavior, which works with how product are configured at the assembly level to allow users to work with content and let customers and stakeholders access data, the company states.
“This release marks a huge step forward for fabrication and mechanical design customers. We specifically targeted improvements in the overall productivity of the design process as well as allowing customers to make use of 3D product data. This inclusion of people outside of design group dramatically improves productivity and communication for all stakeholders,” says Cary O’Connor, vice president of Marketing at IronCAD.
