MagnaCatalogs (IronCAD™ 3D catalog content) updated with new features

Magnacad has made available for years exclusively developed IronCAD catalogs. MagnaCatalogs are developed using only the functionality found in core of IronCAD solutions. By not using any specific programming languages to develop them, makes them ideal for IronCAD users to adapt and modify to suit their own needs without the need to be a programmer. We will continue this practice moving forward. So as new tools are implemented in the IronCAD solutions, these catalogs will evolve. That being said, we have updated some catalogs. 

Whats new...
  • For this go around, we decided to consolidate some our more advanced catalogs into one catalog entitled "Mag-TOOLS" and in doing so we have updated some of the components to include dimensional previews for our variant models.
  • We added access to video tutorials and user guides directly in the catalogs to help you better understand some of the functionality. Simply use the same drag-n-drop approach to launch them. The User guides can be downloaded in a Microsoft Powerpoint format if you sign up for a free account.
  • Additional components have been added.
  • Tools categorized as process-specific catalog sub-folders.
NOTE: MagnaCatalogs available for current IronCAD support contract subscribers only.

New resources added to IronCAD Owners Network (ICON) Site

We added some more new resources to the ICON website.

PDF995 - The pdf995 suite of products - Pdf995, PdfEdit995, and Signature995 - is a complete solution for your document publishing needs. It provides ease of use, flexibility in format, and industry-standard security- and all at no cost to you. We have been using it for years and quite often it will work better than the Adobe® solution.

IConvert -  With this free online icon converter, you can convert any icon or image into an icon specifically for your platform. This is a great tool if you wish to change icons in your IronCAD™ catalogs that better suit your mindset.

PennEngineering® - Online 3D Catalog of sheet metal componenets such as self-clinching nuts, studs, etc. A great site for sheet metal designers.

Quick Tips

IRONCAD Structural Steel Weldment Creation.
Machine design inevitably involves the use of structural steel members for items such as frames for tables, building structures, crane supports, etc. This process involves building a profiles that can consist of 2D and 3D curves that layout the path of the members to trace followed by end conditions for members that are connected or intersected. The Structural Steel process is a specialty application where the framework for this capability has been added for 2015. You can use these tools to build a single part consisting of many different members and sizes that can be trimmed to define the appropriate end conditions. In addition, these parts will automatically be called out in the Bill of Materials with the name and length of each member to give accurate cut lists for manufacturing.

Application allowing users to view and collaborate designs with your extended teams. Share files and catalogs with the iOS version of COMPOSE and configure your designs on your tablet directly with your customers. Share these new designs directly with the design team to speed up the development process.
