2D/3D computer-aided engineering software CAE: steel structures
ALLPLAN STEEL DESIGN
Allplan Steel Design is a marriage between Scia Engineer and Allplan, giving access within Allplan to all modelling facilities of Scia Engineer concerning steel structures. By using templates or by direct modelling, Allplan users get access to an extensive set of tools for virtual prototyping & intelligent modelling of steel structures. In your familiar Allplan environment, with objects such as brickwork walls, concrete columns, system floors, glass windows, steel built-in elements, ... it is now possible to work with steel templates. Make your choice out of the many parameterised templates and model your steel structure, connections included. It is not only possible to modify the model by retrieving and adapting its parameters in Allplan, but also to alter it in Scia Engineer. For example, after having performed a profile optimisation in Scia Engineer, the changes are immediately visible in Allplan.
As before, it is possible to generate views and cuts from the Allplan model. Since the model is also an Scia Engineer project, the automatic overview drawings or detail drawings from the CAE software can be used too.
Allplan Steel Design is available on 4 levels: the library of steel templates, the modeller for creating your own construction in Scia Engineer and for reading it in Allplan afterwards, parametric design for parameterising your own constructions (e.g. staircase on the above picture on the right) and the entire Scia Engineer program, not only for modelling but also for performing the static analysis.
