User-Defined Steel Connections

Easily create your own user-defined connections using general purpose tools like plate, bolt, weld, section, cut, chamfer and fillet and use these connections at similar joints.

Automate and Refine Your Steel Detailing

Open ProtaStructure models directly in ProtaSteel to start your detailing process. Easily navigate the entire model in 3D or work with model components of your choice.

Choose and automatically design to your chosen code a broad range of bolted and welded connections.

Adjust elements, add ancillary steel work and create unique connections using intuitive commands to suit your project requirements.

Clear and Concise Steel Detail Drawings

ProtaSteel will perform automated clash checks, model audit, part & assembly numbering seamlessly and flexibly.

You can then create your general arrangement and part & assembly drawings using the central 3D model, including elevations, plans, sections and connections. You can use flexible annotations and title blocks to suit your drawing preferences.

Save hundreds of hours by automatically producing shop details and producing CNC data for all steelwork fabrication.

Save Time, Automate Details, Enhance Communication

Plot directly from ProtaSteel or publish DWG drawing output directly to ProtaDetails or your preferred CAD system including AutoCAD, Microstation and Bricscad. Seamlessly communicate the entire model with other leading BIM systems including Revit and Tekla Structures.
