IronCAD Design Collaboration Suite 2013 Released

IronCAD, LLC, the leading provider of 3D design productivity solutions, today announced the release of the IronCAD Design Collaboration Suite 2013. The 2013 IronCAD Design Collaboration Suite is a complete range of products that include IRONCAD, INOVATE, IRONCAD DRAFT, TRANS, and IronCAD's latest product IRONCAD COMPOSE. With the addition of COMPOSE, this integrated suite provides real collaboration between all departments of an organization enabling companies to communicate design data with customers from initial design to the configuration of the final product.

Using the IronCAD Design Collaboration Suite products, users can leverage 3D within a 2D design process, conceptualize in 3D freely without regard to the modeling feature history order dependencies, interrogate and share designs throughout the enterprise, and can complete full 3D and 2D production designs.

"We are extremely excited about the 2013 release of the Design Collaboration Suite," commented Richard Serna, IronCAD's VP of Sales, "With many customer driven productivity enhancements and the addition of IRONCAD COMPOSE, customers truly have a design solution that allows them to use design data in an entirely new way by allowing all aspects of an organization to participate in the design, promotion, and selling of a company's products. Thereby meeting customer's needs in a more efficient and effective way which allows companies to be more profitable," he continued.
