CADWorx Structure gives structural designers the same ease of modeling CADWorx Plant gave the piping world. CADWorx Structure is purpose-built for structural designers with only the capabilities you need to simply and effectively create structural design models. Intergraph took the best of CADWorx Steel Professional and re-wrote it into a full-featured structural modeling package that allows users to quickly insert steel members into their design or build complex steel structures with full coping and database capabilities.
CADWorx Structure is a full-featured structural modeling package that comes complete with steel shapes and catalogs. CADWorx Structure provides tools to quickly insert steel members into a design or build complex steel structures with full coping and database capabilities.
CADWorx Steel 3D Modeling
CADWorx Steel is the easiest structural modeling package on the market. The program uses intuitive tools that make creating frames, structures, pylons, towers etc. a breeze! The ‘Point and Shoot UCS makes placing members in any position and orientation painless and quick. If you can work in 2D you already have the knowledge to produce intelligent three dimensional steel models that take less time than they would if they had been done in 2D.
The program allows straight or curved steel members to be placed on construction lines or at any place in the design. The editing of the steel members, sizes, lengths, coping and notching against adjoining members is easy. All steel components can be linked to project databases for full and comprehensive bills of material reports. CADWorx Steel also includes parametric ladder, stair and hand-railing capabilities.
Comprehensive Steel Libraries
CADWorx Steel comes complete with a full library of international steel shapes in both imperial and metric units. Either metric or imperial shapes can be placed in either environment without the modification of their underlying data files, allowing maximum flexibility for global projects whilst reducing conversion rework and input mistakes.
Frame and View Creation
CADWorx Steel makes the creation of complex 3D steel structures as simple as drawing in 2D. Multilevel frames with vertical or sloped sides can be combined to create intricate layouts that will allow you to easily place steel members by picking single or multiple frame lines to have the program automatically place steel members in the model.
As each frame is created CADWorx Steel automatically creates AutoCAD views for each elevation, column or row in the model. CADWorx Steel’s built in routines can also automatically dimension and annotate each elevation, column or row view for ease of drawing creation.
User Shapes and Customization
CADWorx Steel allows structural designers and engineers to create user shapes that can be made up of plates or derived from any extruded profile. This means that you can build on CADWorx Steel’s capabilities and deliver what you need – intelligently!
Editing and Modification
As all CADWorx Steel members are intelligent so they can be easily modified by selecting them and modifying their properties. Functionality also exists that lets you automatically cope steel members against each other. You can additionally cut, trim and join any members – allowing modifications to the design without time robbing remodeling.
Databases, Reports and Bills of Material
CADWorx Steel outputs to popular database formats and has full auditing capabilities making sure model and database are kept in sync. Center of gravity calculations are automatically created and can be shown on-screen, in drawings or in a detailed report. User configurable bills of material are also available directly from the model or from the external database.
In Summary, with CADWorx Steel you get the following:
- 3D Modeling
- Comprehensive Steel Libraries
- Frame and View Creation
- User Shapes and Customization
- Editing and Modification
- Databases, Reports and Bills of Material
