Steel Structure Designer: Building definitions and tools enabling users to configure complete structures in seconds, from standard building shapes used in industry (platforms, steel halls), to more complex models, such as office buildings or structures with curved roofs.
PowerPack for Advance Steel extends the standard library with a variety of parametric and intelligent advanced connections. Some of them are:
Threaded Rod Connection: Create a rod with round or square cross-section between two elements (beams, plates, gratings)
Tube to Tube Connection: Create a connection between 2 tubes with holes and weld positions.
Asymmetrical/Staggered Pattern: Creates asymmetrical/staggered patterns of bolts/anchors/holes/shear studs
Plate for Multiple Bracings: Creates a polygonal, circular or rectangular gusset plate between two or more bracings.
Parametric Cold Rolled Joints: macro driven dialogs for simple configuration changes to the connections based on model restrictions and engineering requirements, for main cold rolled suppliers in Europe
Floor Cover Macro: Cover an area with standard size grating panels/plates of specified dimensions
Platform Cover Creator: Automatically create grating or plate cover based on the selected supporting members
Folded Plate Extender: Adds a folded plate to an existing plate
Straight/Balanced Stairs: One/Two/Three flights
Automatic Stair Design & Ergonomics: Automatically determine the rise, going or a number of treads, all within stairway requirement ranges, and assuring the overall stair’s geometry.
Customizable Landings: Choose a landing support structure, by adding ribs or a frame or even extend stringers to boundaries, in order to split the landing plate
Customizable Treads: Standard or folded plate treads, with closed or open risers, grating treads with endplates, or even special parts to accommodate treads from different manufacturers
Standard/Ball Post/Double Post/Key clamp/Wall-mounted Railings: The module enables defining new railings starting from points, lines, or beams
Different Ending Types: Set a generous range of extension shapes at the rail’s ends, independently configuring the start and end, having also the possibility to add cover components like cap plates
Infill panels: The panels can be welded to posts or connected through clamps, available in the existing library, or create user-defined fittings
Split Railings: Cut rails in accordance with the indicated post or wall bracket, for further welding, mechanically assembling with internal joints (tube to tube connection) or user-defined external sleeves
Special Parts: Various rail components can be added or customized from a specialized manager, when using bought-ready supplier assemblies: key clamp systems, glass clamps, wall rail brackets, ending caps
