IronCAD Draft is an extremely powerful 2D mechanical drafting tool with an easy-to- learn, industry standard user interface and a unique 3D integration capability.
Use IronCAD Draft to analyze, leverage, render, and reference 3D model data created by customers and colleagues while still working in a 2D CAD environment with a familiar user interface and common tools for detailing.
2D Detailing for 3D Data
IronCAD Draft is an affordable, powerful 2D CAD software with an easy-to-learn user interface and unique 3D integration capabilities. Use IronCAD Draft to analyze, leverage, render, and reference 3D model data created by customers and colleagues while still working in a 2D CAD environment with a familiar user interface and common tools for detailing.
Time-Saving Parts Library
Included in IronCAD Draft is a library that contains hundreds of standard part designs with associated parametric data. Simply drag and drop desired parts into the design environment and specify parameters. Parts will be automatically created and laid out in a standard 2D CAD software presentation, saving countless hours of design time.
Leveraging Legacy Data & Expertise
IronCAD Draft will not only import files from any major 2D CAD software while retaining technical data, it can also be used to convert those designs into 3D catalogs so that they can be leveraged for future projects. Supporting AutoCAD commands, IronCAD Draft promises an easy learning curve for 2D CAD veterans wishing to collaborate with colleagues working in 3D and eventually transition to 3D themselves.
