No more struggle with steel connection design
Connection design simplified
IDEA StatiCa is an industry-leading steel connection design software. You get clear pass/fail checks as per code in minutes. IDEA StatiCa will save up to 80% of your connection design time because of:
- A huge database of pre-designed 2D/3D connections, footings, CHS and HSS connections, steel-to-timber, and other connections
- Quick modeling and design of any bolted and welded connections
- Thorough AISC/EN checks, including buckling, stiffness analysis, design resistance, and seismic
- Fully customizable reports with equations and pictures that sell
ANY GEOMETRY AND LOADING
Design any type of steel connection from scratch or import it from your analysis or detailing software. Apply simplified or complex loading. Visualize the connection behavior. Generate connection sketches and bill of material in seconds. IDEA StatiCa gets your connection design done for every configuration of steel connections you need:
- Moment connections in steel structures, shear and axial connections, including seismic
- Beam to beam, beam to column, column to column, or column to base plate connections
All steel connection types – simple, moderate, complex

Halle des Saveurs
Halle des Saveurs was designed by architectural firm Greig & Stephenson Architects in the neo-Baltard style and now stands at the historic site of the area’s original market. The French cousin of London’s Borough Market, the hall has been designed to host food and tasting stalls in a marketplace on the ground floor and to house a panoramic restaurant on the first floor, as well as traders outside.

EDGE Amsterdam West
Located in the dynamic and transforming neighborhood of Amsterdam West, it was one of the first offices in the urban development area. In 2019, the EDGE building underwent a complete renovation, with the installation of an impressive steel dome.

Family home in Massachusetts
The project consists of three different buildings – the main house, garage, and pool house.
With an open architectural design and unpropped balcony, the two-story building of the main house sits on a steep bluff overlooking the ocean, exposing it to high winds and introducing numerous challenges in terms of the structural design of the vertical and lateral load resisting systems.
Originally conceived in steel, both the client and architect wished to move to a predominantly wood solution.

The ultimate connection database
IDEA StatiCa has a default set of connections - 250 types, 10.000+ configurations. The feature Connection Browser makes this only a start:
- Create a Company set of connections and upload your previous designs or the most repetitive connections from your fabricator - all your colleagues using the license will see them right away!
- Browse through thousands of sample projects, webinar projects and case studies and add them to your set
Build your ultimate connection database, do projects faster, and impress your customers!
Steel as well as concrete
Accurate design of welded connections, bolted connections, and footing and anchoring. Overall stress and strain check, buckling shapes, equivalent stress, plastic strain, the stress in contacts, bolt forces, and deformations. All components and steel connection details are taken into account. Anchor check, concrete check, and shear lug. Geometrically and materially non-linear analysis.
What do our customers say about us?
Report that sells your work
Export all the calculations in a readable and presentable document in PDF and docx. You can build the report by adding/removing pictures, sketches, code-check results, formulas and explanations, bill of material. Sell your work by adding beautiful and accurate 3D visuals of the geometry and results.
How much will you save on steel connections?
Connection design is not pain just for you. We have collected feedback from over 1000 structural engineers and created a calculator that can reasonably estimate how your connection design process can change when you get onboard with IDEA StatiCa. Spend 3 minutes on it, they will be worth it!
