Faster & Easier
IronCAD lets you design the way you think, intuitively and powerfully. It’s significantly faster to use, and much easier to learn than conventional 3D design software. Put simply, get far more return on investment from every minute you or your team uses CAD software.
IronCAD models fast, and we mean really fast. Get ahead of your competitors and get to market faster with design tools that leave traditional 3D CAD systems in the dust. IronCAD can often do the same model in half the time of conventional 3D systems. Add this productivity up over months and the extra profitability and productivity IronCAD can offer is almost priceless.
Read the details...
In traditional CAD software, you usually start a model by creating or selecting a plane, then creating a sketch on that plane, and then creating a 3D shape from that sketch (like an extrude, spin, sweep, loft etc).
In IronCAD you skip these steps. They are still available for you if you want them, but you don’t need them. For example, simply drag and drop a shape into place, it now has a sketch plane and cross-section already drawn for you, you can edit them at any stage, but you skipped the boring (and unnecessary) process of individually creating them.
But let’s dig deeper. In traditional CAD software, you create all your parts individually and then assemble them at the end with mates and constraints. This is time-consuming and largely unnecessary, but also not the way we naturally think about products. We think about products as a related whole assembly, not as a combination of individual unrelated parts. It also means things don’t always fit the first time around.
In IronCAD you design in the context of your assembly, whether your product is 10 parts or 10,000 parts, it can all be done in one IronCAD file. You get to design in the context of your whole assembly, seeing how parts relate to each other and sizing them to fit other parts in the assembly. Everything fits perfectly first time around. Another benefit of this is that you don’t need mates or constraints for most parts because the only parts that need to be constrained are ones that have specified movement (like a wheel or lever). For everything else, you can completely skip the mates and constraints, which is a huge time saving compared to traditional methods.
This means, as a company, you can get far more done in the same amount of time. Maybe you were currently getting 4 drawings done per day, make it 8. Maybe you think you need another CAD user to keep up with demand, get them using IronCAD and they’ll do the job of two people using traditional software. All in all, giving you more profit for every minute your company uses CAD software.
Learn It In Days,
IronCAD is made to think the way you do. Our tools are not only powerful but built to be extremely intuitive. Many people can be comfortably using IronCAD in hours or days, not weeks or months like most CAD software. Whether you’ve got a busy schedule or want to train your team in a flash, we’d be very surprised if they can learn anything else as fast as they can learn IronCAD.

IronCAD is built to be intuitive, that’s why we have drag and drop catalogs, push and pull shapes and more. It’s built to think the way you do, and give you predictable results when you want to get something done. IronCAD’s methodology is logical, making it easy for new CAD users to pick up and understand quickly.
If you’re learning it for yourself, this means you can get confident much faster than traditional software, and not have to worry about lengthy and expensive training courses. If you’re training employees, this means you can have them working productively in far less time.
We Say We’re Faster,
Back Us Up.
There are hundreds of thousands of IronCAD customers around the world. They know the difference IronCAD makes in their businesses, and many of them switched from traditional CAD systems.
“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.
“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.
“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.”
Peter Forsell, ARFO.
“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.”
Anders Uddman, Ankarsrum Motors.
“There are many features of IronCAD that have made our company much more productive in design/drawing/production processes”
Sean Brunt, Metwest Engineering.
“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.
“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.
There’s So Much More.
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.
Powerful & Easy To Use Sheet Metal
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.
