No more struggle with steel connection design
Connection design simplified
IDEA StatiCa is an industry-leading EN and AISC 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 code-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

250+ Connections in 3 clicks
Your steel connection design software should not limit the number of beams, bolts, welds, plates, and other steel connection details. Do the most common steel connections in seconds and continue editing the connection right in the 3D scene. Super-speed your design by:
- Hundreds of default connection types, 10.000+ design configurations
- Personalized and company templates
- Unique Pre-design feature that automatically models connections for you
You do not have to be a FEA expert
You model the connection as you do in a CAD application. IDEA StatiCa puts the analytical model together, in the background, taking into account all the forces and interactions. You get precise checks, results of stress/strain, stiffness, and buckling analysis. It also checks bolts, welds, and concrete block. This is the software for steel connection design that works for you.
Complete 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.
