What do our customers say about us?

We have become early adopters of IDEA StatiCa because its advanced design and check process is both powerful and quick enough to be a useful tool in our everyday work as structural engineers for fabricators.

Thanks to IDEA StatiCa Connection, we have done in our project each steel connection is less than 1 day what would have taken more than a week with the old processes. Today, I only use ADC with some side manual verifications.

Implementation of IDEA StatiCa Connection to our workflows decreases the consumption and handling of the material and the welding costs in comparison to the previously used approach. This went hand in hand with simplifying and speeding up the production process.

IDEA StatiCa allows us to design a much wider range of connections, in less time, as well as look into the stiffness behaviour of connections to see how this interacts with the global structural analysis.

IDEA StatiCa Connection works easy and fast. There is no other alternative solution on the market that provides both FEM and Component Based Method. IDEA Statica is a solid and good tool for the design of our steel connections.

IDEA StatiCa Connection is a very helpful package for the modeling of a wide range of joints in steel structures. Modeling and interpretation of the results requires an understanding of the forces within a node and is equal to the complexity of the connection.

Safety first
Clear pass/fail checks for steel connection design. Complete analysis and design of concrete members. Customizable reports. Thousands of tests performed.
Save time
Slash time of designing steel connections and concrete members. Hundreds of templates, no limits to the topology. Visual analysis of your designs.
Design confidence
Quickly assess the buildability of steel connections and concrete details at any phase of a project. Sell your work better to customers.
Leverage BIM
Minimize errors by synchronizing the steel connection design with your CAD or FEA applications. Import concrete members from the analytical model.

Trusted technology partner

We closely cooperate with key industry players like Autodesk, Trimble, HILTI, and NEMETSCHEK to develop and provide the best workflows for structural engineers. We save you time by ensuring that no data has to be entered twice during the design process.

Our partners

Proven, reliable calculations

We work closely with numerous universities to test and verify IDEA StatiCa results. No matter the topology, your designs are complete, accurate, and in accordance with AISC, Eurocode, and other design codes.
