IronCAD and NEi Software Announce “NEi Nastran for IronCAD”

Nastran Based FEA in IronCAD's 3D Associative Environment  

ATLANTA, GA. Oct 26th, 2011 – IronCAD, LLC, the leading provider of design productivity solutions, and NEi Software today announced the immediate availability of NEi Nastran for IronCAD, a powerful finite element analysis solution designed to run inside of the user interface of IRONCAD and INOVATE. With NEi Nastran for IronCAD, product design teams can perform FEA pre-processing, analysis and post-processing within the same associative design environment to provide engineers the flexibility to test product designs before manufacturing.

By providing FEA early in the design process, companies can reduce errors, design and testing cycles, time-to-market, and product development costs which increase the return on investment. Running fully imbedded in the IronCAD Design Collaboration suite design products IRONCAD and INOVATE, users can leverage the full design strengths of these products to quickly build products and perform analysis studies reducing the number of physical prototypes before going into production.

“Integrating simulation early and throughout the design process is the wave of the future for design engineers.” commented Philip Potasiak, President of NEi Software. “NEi Software and IronCAD have partnered to develop NEi Nastran for IronCAD to address this critical need” he continued.

IronCAD registered users will be able to download and install the “NEi Nastran for IronCAD” that will enable users to run and explore the following capabilities as a fully functional node-limited version within IRONCAD and INOVATE:

  • Linear Static and Steady-State Heat Transfer
  • Normal Modes, Buckling, Composites, and Prestress
  • Advanced Dynamics (Transient Response, Frequency Response)
  • Nonlinear Analysis (Nonlinear Static and Transient Response)
  • Nonlinear Transient Heat Transfer (Static and Transient)


As users needs extend, options are available to purchase licensed versions of the functionality to meet their design needs. For purchasing options, please contact at 1-800-339-7304 ( Email Contact) or your local reseller (

"Working with NEi Software to bring advance FEA capabilities into the IronCAD Design Collaboration Suite products brings tremendous value to design engineers needing the capability to quickly design and analyze products." commented Cary O’Connor, Vice President of Product Marketing at IronCAD. "This partnership extends advance analysis capabilities beyond what is offered in the market to customers that need speed and flexibility in designing products which results in better products in a shorter time with greater return of investment" he continued.
