IronCAD Mechanical was developed in the form of an IronCAD catalog, following the format set by IronCAD. IronCAD Mechanical currently consists of seven catalogs: Mech, Tools, Utils, Pipes, Flanges, Mold, Arch; IronCAD Mechanical also includes a collection of commands placed in the Add-Ins Ribbon Bar of IronCAD.

Some Functional Tools are for example: Suppress Manager (a fast tool used to suppress and unsuppressed parts and assemblies), ProActiveBOM (a very powerful BOM manager active in scene environment) and last but not least ProActive Part, that is a parametric part generator.

Each of catalogs has its own unique set of tools that will be explored in this guide.


The Catalog functionalities of IronCAD Mechanical are divided in two main categories: Parametric Libraries and Functional Tools.

Parametric Libraries includes all the routines for creation of parametric parts like fasteners, steels, bearing etc. All these parts are fully compliant to UNI/DIN rules.

Functional Tools are a collection of commands that improve the users’ productivity.
