Solution for 2D design of metal structures in AutoCAD or BricsCAD environment.
This is a bidimensional software, so there is no limit to the number of elements that can be entered. It differs from other TecnoMETAL modules for how the design is done: all procedures are manual. The result is what needs to be obtained from a technical software - the bills of materials and information for the production.
Let's see in detail what are the advantages of this design tool
TecnoMETAL STANDARD allows to insert 2d mechanical elements from the mechanical element database.
It allows to draw individual elements of metal structures in two-dimensional view. Profile insertion is done through database selection.
It allows you to extract the bills of materials directly from the drawing that can be then printed or exported to Excel™.
The macros allow you to automatically insert some types of classic elements of steel structures.
By launching the marking command, the program automatically recognizes the element type, profile or plate,dimensions and material, but the quantity must be entered manually by the designer.
The database contains a series of design information, that can be divided into classic steelwork elements: profiles, plates, bolts.
The Sketches contain all the information for the production of each element, and also contain information for CNC machines. The sketches (or CAM file) can be displayed on the computer or it be exported as DXF, PDF, DWG, NC and DSTV file. It is possible to create a CAM file from a bent profile as a plate development, welded or composite, it is possible to create a CAM file from a tube with cuts and you can also import the CAM file to scale as a file DWG.
TecnoMETAL also contains a number of extremely useful commands such as sheet metal nesting, DXF file creation from CAM files, and vice versa, creating bent profile CAM files and dividing welded profiles into plates, searching for and checking identical cam files, creating families for Revit, export list of necessary treatments (with division between cuts, holes ...), increase or decrease of holes diameter directly in the CAM file.
The STANDARD version represents a
*There are still some important limitations comparing to TecnoMETAL PREMIUM and TecnoMETAL ULTIMATE, the marking of the elements is semi-automatic, while drawing individual elements it is not possible for the software to recognize the amount of objects and screws needed for the construction. The quantity must be entered manually by the designer, impossible to communicate with 3D software, purely bidimensional, it doesn’t have the possibility to export information to other 3D software.
