We dumped STAAD many years ago because of all its bugs and their customer support went to zero.  It was very sad because STAAD is a very robust program with many features.  For about 90% of our work we use RISA 3-D and for the few occasions where we need a nonlinear or time history analysis we use SAP.

Staad 2007

We are a small Engineering company in need of a 3D analysis and design program, we have a old version of STAAD.PRO 2001and are considering upgrading to 2007, however we are getting concerns with the new subscription type copy protection (Bentley SELECT Program) as, due to our need, we do to upgrade that often. Our main concern is what happens after the year agreement end? Does the software stop working? The sale lady from Bentley says it will continue working but will not get the upgrades, however my partner doest not trust salespersons.
Are there other options for 3D analysis and design software for small Engineering firm? We are getting and “Special Discount: to upgrade for lest than what it will cost to buy from the competition in addition that I am familiar with STADD.
