Software for the design and verification of steel structures
Developed to explore your creativity
Software for the
2D/3D architectural project
Why do we use TecnoMETAL: Because I am sure that the geometry of the pieces created in the modelling, will be easily processed in the PCP as: Planning of welded and bent profiles in plates, with certainty that the drilling, cuts and notches are correct, ready to be sent to CNC machines or printed for manual work. The sketches are extracted automatically in a few seconds, without the need to add quotas. I have the certainty that all the quotas required in the production process are generated. Why do we use Tecnocam: Tecnocam is a very reliable software in the distribution of parts by work center or СТС machines. Guaranteers the exact quantity of required parts, avoidind the surprises at the end the work with leftovers or lack of parts. In the configuration of the distribution of the pieces by "work center" the software has very interesting options, such as: Thicknesses, length, width, cut, coped cut, hole diameter and many others. The BAR module that is integrated with TecnoCAM was the first to allow the user to create splices automatically or manually, recreating the files correctly to be imported to the CNC machines or printed to work manually. At the same time that the BAR module performs the optimization, it updates the quantity in the bar stock that is controlled by the STOCK module.
Why do we use TecnoMETAL: Tecnometal provides us with the tools needed to develop efficient projects that meet our needs and those of our customers, providing us with agility, quality and safety from the design of the project to the assembly of the metal structure.
At Metalcon we need agility and reliability in the information generated by Engineering for production. That’s why TecnoMetal is a good tool to manage this process, with the use of the electronic model for the construction of the project, and the creation of 2D drawings and CAM files for manufacturing. This ensures that the manufacturing process is executed as precisely as the original design.
Why do I use Tecnometal (or Arten or TecnoCAM) 1- For being an AutoCad platform. 2 - For the ease in manipulating the program database, where the options are made of profiles (all modalities), 2D and 3D connections, steps, handrails, without the need to be a computer expert. 3- Powerful 3D tool, very easy in the generation and manipulation of the models. 4- Imports the calculated structure from Sap2000, resulting in a very significant productivity gain in modelling. 5- Import / export files to PDMS, PDS / FrameWorks, SmartMarine 3D (off shore structures). 6- Export/Import of files with the family of profiles for Revit, facilitating the interaction with the project architecture. 7- Generated bill of material, that can be exported in txt, excel, allowing the use in external programs. 8- Various macros developed at the request of designers and professionals in the field of metallic structures. 9- The drawings generated in the extraction of the model, can be manipulated with all the resources of AutoCAD and existing 2D module in the program, this is highly productive. 10- The relationship of Steel&Graphics with customers is very different compared to other suppliers. They are always open to ideas and suggestions that can be added to the program, as well as provide immediate solutions when needed.
Hello Colleagues. I’ve been using the TecnoMetal and TecnoPlot instrument for eight years, so I can guarantee the efficiency of the products. With a preview of a 3D model we can get a great presentation of a project, where the customer has the finished vision of his project even without having great knowledge in the metal structure. The facility of extracting bills of materials directly from the 3D model gives us the comfort of having a report at any moment and also at the finalization of the project, the cutting plan will be ready for the production. From my experience, I can say that these tools greatly optimize the process and greatly reduce the risk of any unexpectedness from the budget to the assembly of the work.
We have been using TecnoMetal software for more than 10 years, it is a tool that greatly increases the productivity of our engineering industry, it helps in generating bills of materials, weights, holes and is fully integrated with other Steel & Graphics software such as TecnoCam that allows the PCP to optimize plant management, enabling file generation to be sent to various CNC machines, such as FICEP Drills. Another extremely positive point is the support of Steel & Graphics that is even better now in Brazil, having a qualified support team, always ready to assist in solving problems.
We have been TecnoMETAL users for several years. We use other similar softwares and we have a deep knowledge of all of them. TecnoMETAL stands out by its simplicity and convenience of the commands. The interface with other software is 100% compatible. We made a comparison among all the options on the market and came to the following conclusions: in performing the 3D model all of them take pretty much the same time. But, in transforming the 3D parts into 2D and quoting/detailing them TecnoMETAL has shown better results. Only those who work with all the software can give this statement without demeaning any other software.
