Leverage Your Engineering Data - Sales, Publication and Marketing


As Engineers and designers you may not be interested in renderings and/or animations or even sales and marketing. But we are all interested in the success of our companies. Many of you are like me and run a small company and may do your own presentations and marketing. If you are in a larger company please forward this information to any person that would be interested in easy access to your engineering data. I am sure they would love to have these features available.

INOVATE can easily create wonderful renderings or animations to use in your existing graphic design package or packages like Microsoft Word, 3DMax or MS Expressions Web 4 (which I am using here) to create great brochures, newsletters, web content, good looking emails or social media. You can easily directly create 2D or 3D PDF’s to really show off your products.

IRONCAD adds an incredible technical documentation format that offers capabilities to create great technical sales quotes or presentations. As you can see below you can create incredible documentation beyond just detailing a part or defining an assembly.

IronCAD was first released as a graphic design package called Trispectives. It still has all of the incredible graphic design functionality such as integrated realistic rendering and animation. It is a step above virtually all the popular Solidworks clones due to its Single Model Environment. This allows anyone with a need to create great copy or documents with access to the complete assembly in a single file.

We will be having a short webinar showing how easy it is to utilize the data. We will show some animations and other renderings. Truly, it really is very easy to use.

Sales Tool

Your sales person can generate great proposals and quotes. No, you don’t need an engineer or be an engineer to do this. With just a couple of hours of instruction you will be an expert. This is truly CAD for the non-CAD person.

This assembly was imported from Solidworks.

You have the option to work with fully colored renderings or the more technical wireframe.

Or you can create one button realistic renderings.

Product Configuration Tool - Free IronCAD Compose

IronCAD Compose is more than a free view it is a tool that allows a sales team to create a product configuration in no time. You can see in the video IronCAD Compose has access to any of the custom catalogs. It has all of the rendering and animation tools that are found in Inovate and IronCAD.

Don't need IronCAD or Inovate!

You do not have to have IronCAD to take advantage of the incredible functionality of IronCAD Compose. We have translator add-on for only $195.00 that will give you access to your CAD systems native files. You can create the custom catalogs and have a productive easy to use sales tool.


Tech Pubs

You can use the documentation format in IRONCAD to create more technical documents.

This assembly was imported from Solid Edge, but will work with any of the other popular programs. Remember this assembly was in a single file.

3D CAD Single Model Design Environment

You create them vertical.

Or Horizontal. Doing this requires no more than a couple of hours of training.

Marketing and Publications
Your graphics, marketing or publication person or department can have direct access to your parts and assemblies. The assemblies come into a Single File. It is an easy to use the graphic tools to create great Realistic Renderings and Animations for your website, newsletters, brochures, presentations, etc. You can create any graphic format, even Standard & 3D PDF’s. There is no reason to bother busy designers or engineers to generate graphics from your existing complex CAD system.
Images – Yes you can create any level of realistic rendering.

Most of the time a one button Realistic Rendering is more than adequate, but it takes a bit more to do the above renderings. Like all sophisticated Realistic rendering programs it is basically a profession. There is a learning curve plus you should be very familiar with the package. If you are an experienced KeyShot user we have KeyShot as an optional add on.

IronCAD and Inovate and KeyShot!

One Button Rendering! These products were developed in IronCAD


While a simple Animation is relatively easy, complex animations like realistic rendering, requires a good working knowledge and familiarity with the process.

INOVATE was designed as a graphics package and is very sophisticated. The beauty is that these capabilities were integrated into the package from the beginning.

INOVATE/IRONCAD and play with it. You can read the native files both part and assemblies from all of the popular programs such as Creo, Catia, NX, Solidworks, Solid Edge and Inventor. The assemblies come into a single file where you can easily work with all of the parts. You can instantly start working with your existing 3D models without limitations.
