Re: steel connection software

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
RISA2D is a good program. I have evaluated their RC design feature and the results are the same with my HP49G RC design program. RAM has a steel connection software although I have not evaluated it yet. I am still using AVwin 98. Most of my past projects are RC structures and  few tall commercial signs where I designed the connections manually.

If you are using a steel connection design and detail program, what are you using?
I am looking at Descon or may wait for RISA Steel Connection later this year. I looked online at Descon and the slides make it look perfect for what I need, and export dwg filed is DXF format. I only use RISA 2D for frame design, and neither will be linked or compatible anyway with RISA 2-D.... I am not interested nor do I need a complicated 3-D modeling program. Yet...
