What are you currently using for general steel connection/framing/erecting drawings/designs.
A colleague of mine is interested in SDS/2 as a standalone; and also as connected software with REVIT. He is hoping that it would help speed up our production of stairs, grating handrails as well as standard AISC steel connections/details.
Currently our approach is to use GT STRUDL and/or ANSYS for our industrial type (i.e. nuclear industry) designs followed by modeling in Inventor which we then export to AutoCAD for drawing creation.
If you have any recommendations or experience I would greatly appreciate your input.
Thanks in advance, you may respond to the list or myself directly at firstname.lastname@example.org.
