Complete BIM Solution for 3D design, structure verification, and fabrication information.
TecnoMETAL BSB includes all features of TecnoMETAL to which are added a 3D CAD, in this way you have an independent software to design, verification and 2d drawing, B.O.M. and cam/nc/dstv file for fabrication process of steel structures.
You can create a 3D model of the structure and verify its connections. Within the software there is a large database of the most used steelwork connections.
BSB Solution is BIM Certificated and you can have a unique solution TecnoMETAL and CAD integrated.
Because TecnoMETAL BSB is provided with his internal CAD and you can use all CAD and TecnoMETAL commands in a unique software.
TecnoMETAL BSB contains all the functions of TecnoMETAL Premium , in addition to the following functions.
Inside TecnoCAD included in BSB solution, you can import and export IFC format or you can generate a STEP file for fabrication machine.
O TecnoCAD is a 3d cad that includes all 3D CAD functions. The files are saved in dwg format and you can use it with or without the TecnoMETAL menu.
TecnoMETAL includes some tools that greatly facilitate the modeling work and allows you to design elements automatically, verify interferences with all steelwork elements included, such as: wireframes, connections, braces, security stairs, sailor type stairs, spiral stairs, handrails, towers, purlins, bridges, curtain walls, porches, steps, circular platforms, piping supports, tie rods, turnbuckles, hoppers, rectangular and polygonal pylons, etc.
In addition to all the traditional types of profiles, it is also possible to register composite profiles, cast-in profiles, tubes with connections for spatial structure, variable section profiles, welded tubes, profiles for aluminum structures and generic profiles where the user can register any desired profile geometry. It is possible to propagate a change to all equal parts or just to the selected parts.
It is possible to insert more than 1000 automatic combinations of connections of that can be saved in the database to be reused in other models. There is a specific option for welded and bolted joints. After inserting a connection into the model, you can modify the connection and decide whether to propagate the same modification to all the identical connections in the model. The connections inserted through the macro can be verified by entering the constraints.
TecnoMETAL allows you to insert chamfers and cuts in both the plates and the profiles. It also allows to insert and indicate the type of welding. The welding can be marked to obtain a list with information on the type and material required. The welding preparations inserted are in the cam file to facilitate the fabrication.
TecnoMETAL performs the automated marking of the entire model. It is possible to configure the marking so that the name of the marks and positions is alphanumeric. Also, it is possible to perform a marking according to the AISC standard. Within the marking subassemblies can be created. It is possible to do the marking with all the marks at quantity 1, this marking is required when it is necessary to trace the 100% of the structure, in addition the marks can be renamed in 2d drawing automatically and we can view them inside the 3d model.
It allows you to extract the bills of materials and bolts from the 3d model. All lists can be customized and exported to Excel format. There are many types of lists such as: all elements of the model, profile type, bolt list, cutting list, etc.
From the 3D Model are automatically obtained the sketches for the production and the assembly views. It is also possible to obtain a table of connections designed with the 3d Connections macro. Extraction settings can be customized. It is possible to insert 2D perspective drawings including mark, position, and bolt information. Detail drawings can be generated in two ways: Single Drawing = one piece per drawing and Multi Drawing = in which the designer selects and inserts single elements.
OPTIONAL VERIFICATION COMMANDS THAT CAN BE INCLUDED IN TecnoMETAL BSB:
The calculation report can be printed in multiple languages and units of measurement. The calculation report is in HTML format, in order to provide a flexible customizable base. Preset reports are available where the paragraphs are related to the finished model or boundary reactions or to the verification of the connections.
TecnoMETAL BSB is a pre and post processor of finite element solvers that uses TecnoMETAL / CAD as a graphic input interface. You can use the internal solver (XfinestSG) or communicate with SAP2000. It allows the design of steel structures schematized through a mathematical model of finite elements.
OPTIONAL MECHANICAL COMMANDS THAT CAN BE INCLUDED IN TECNOCAD:
Assemblies can be automatically exploded in multiple ways. Exploded representations are created based on disassembly without collision.
Assemble freely using the power of direct 3D modeling. Design parameterizable parts, including sheet metal. Create assemblies using the library of over 30,000 parametric parts. Generate isometrics, sections, exploded views and distinct components, all with automated annotations.
