Base structural drawings on local and regional building codes using country-specific structural detailing templates.
Access concrete reinforcement and structural steel detailing templates that are based on regional detailing practices, including material designations and hatching patterns for several countries. Multiple international databases help structural engineers and drafters use locally required elements, such as steel sections, materials, and rebar shapes.
Display solid objects in structural drafting documents, including items that are typically supported by a steel structure.
Represent concrete foundations, concrete or masonry walls, concrete slabs, and plant structures. While these elements do not necessarily affect the structural steel design, they are a necessary part of the structural modeling process, and they offer a more accurate display and visualization of the structure in detailed drawings.
Create manual weld definitions in drawings using the definition dialogue box.
More freely adjust the look of final shop drawings with customizable styles for engineers and drafters.
Change almost any aspect of the drawing, including descriptions, symbols, dimensions, and tables, adding greater flexibility. Create new styles or modify existing ones to make drawings look exactly how you want them to look.
Use intelligent objects to create structural steel models or rebar drawings.
Structural engineers, detailers, and drafters can use intelligent beams, plates, columns, walls, and reinforcement bars for structural element design, rather than lines and curves. Virtually cut, lengthen, bend, split, and merge objects, and automatically update material takeoffs.
Generate comprehensive workshop drawings with single parts and assemblies.
You can also generate schedules and material takeoffs. Make changes to the design, and the software helps you to streamline time-consuming updates of descriptions and dimensions, providing better data coordination throughout shop drawing sets.
Prepare shop drawings by automatically generating sections and elevations, complete with dimensions and descriptions.
Use the reinforcement bar definition feature for automatic recognition of bar shape and assignments of shape codes.
This option is available for reinforcement definitions, such as manual bar definition, surface reinforcement, and reinforcement defined by macros. It's also available for drawings imported from Revit software products for structural engineering and Robot Structural Analysis Professional software.
Easily import structural steel models created in Robot Structural Analysis Professional software.
Gain support for CIS/2 files for more rapid 3D assembly, structural detailing, and structural analysis. The reinforcement detailing capability also imports reinforcement data from Robot Structural Analysis Professional for automatic generation of reinforcement drawings for selected elements. Several formats are available for data export, and you can send structural steel drawings to computer numeric controlled (CNC) fabrication machines.
Use the Reinforcement Drawing Extension to export reinforcement data from Revit software products to generate 2D drawings.
Generate reinforcement drawings based on a selected national code. You can also import a structural steel model created in Revit. Then, add details to complete the structural model.
