Structural design of all steel connections and members. In minutes.

Be safe, save time, optimize

IDEA StatiCa is software for steel connection design for all types of welded and bolted structural steel connections and base plates. It fastens your connection design process by:  

  • The intuitive design of simple, moderate, and complex steel connections
  • Pass/fail results for 2D/3D, CHS/HSS steel connection as per AISC, EN etc.
  • 250 ready-made templates, 10,000+ connection configurations
  • Ability to apply any loading for axial, shear and moment connections 
  • The complete report including stiffness, seismicity, and buckling

What is the best software for steel connection design?

It is the one that transforms painful steel connection design into a practical solution for your daily work. No matter the complexity of geometry or loading. You can design and code-check whatever connections and steel connection details your project requires. And get a comprehensive report which will prove it to everybody else.

Safe design of all steel members

IDEA StatiCa is not only about connection design! Stability and buckling are critical for safety. Use IDEA StatiCa Member to:

  • Analyze and design any steel frame, beam, and column
  • Stop estimating buckling lengths. Understand strut stability, torsion, and deplanation
  • Provide a clear design report for every critical steel member
Solution for stability and buckling

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.
