Intergraph CADWorx Steel Professional is a 3D steel modelling package that comes complete with powerful design and annotation tools and international steel shapes. With CADWorx Steel, structural designers have access to the best structural tools on the market
Comprehensive Steel Libraries
CADWorx Steel Professional has a full library of international steel shapes in both imperial and metric units. Metric or imperial shapes can be placed in either environment without modifying their underlying data files.
Frame and View Creation
CADWorx Steel Professional makes the creation of complex 3D steel structure simple. Multi-level frames with vertical or sloped sides can be combined to create intricate layouts that allow the easy placement of steel members by the picking of single or multiple frames lines.
User Chapes and Customization
CADWorx Steel Professional allows structural designers and engineers to create user shapes that can be made up of plates or derived from any extruded profile.
Editing and Modification
CADWorx Steel Professional members are intelligent, so they are easily modified. Funtionality also exist that allows the automatic coping of members against one another. Members can be cut, trimmed and also joined to other members – allowing design modifications without remodelling.
CADWorx Steel Professional outputs to popular database formats and has full auditing capabilities, ensuring model and database are kept in synch.
Reports and Bill of Material
Center-of-gravity calculations are automatically created and can be shown on-screen, in drawings or in detailed reports. User-configurable bills of material are available directly from the model or from the external database.
Links to Analysis
CADWorx Steel Professional allows links to structural and piping analysis packages.
Stairs, Ladders and Hand Rails
CADWorx Steel Professional includes routines for the parametric creation of stairs, ladders (both caged and un-caged) and hand railings. Any attribute of these items can be modified at any time – instantly updating the model.
Annotation and 2D Output
Cadworx Steel Professional automatically creates a view for each elevation, column or row in the model. Built-in routines can also automatically dimension, annotate and represent views in double or single line.
