Cut connection design time by up to 80%

Connection design is at the center of every steel project. So, stop making compromises. Steel connection design software IDEA StatiCa allows you to handle all types of bolted connections, welded connections, shear, axial and moment connections, and various steel connection details. 

  • Predefined templates for simple ones, visual modeling for the complex. 
  • Comprehensive reports. 
  • Automated BIM links with your FEA and CAD software.

Handle the complexity of concrete

Concrete design is tricky. Do not rely on simplified tools with a limited set of ULS and SLS checks in concrete projects. IDEA StatiCa is a software for analysis and design of all concrete members and details. Model, optimize reinforcement, get a report with all the code-checks.
