Complete your structural analysis with the design modules

Use integrated design modules to make detailed design checks, generate detailed reports and get automatically detailing drawings.

Shear Walls
With the integrated design module, you can desigh RC shear walls or groups of shear walls, generate corresponding 3D rebar cages and automatically receive the final drawing.

RC Slabs
Apply specific methods to design and reinforce a RC slab, using strips method for example, reinforce the element using bars and fabrics and automatically receive the final drawing.

Steel Connections
Use the integrated module to design steel connnections from the 3D model and automatically gain design reports and drawings.
