Re: Autopipe vs. Caesar

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
I agree regarding STAAD. STAAD's tech support improved significantly after Bentley acquired it.

Perhaps, a less qualified staff was assigned on my Autopipe question.

I have used both Autopipe and Caesar. But, I have not used Caesar in the last five years. I am more proficient with the former and, therefore, it becomes my choice unless the client cries foul.

Ironic. I have found that since Bentley acquired STAAD, their user support has improved markedly.

Of course, support before the acquisition was fairly close to zero, so maybe that's not a fair comparison.

FWIW, I have never worked in any office where Coade CAESAR was not used for pipe stress analysis, if that means anything.
