Design- Data-SDS/2-v7.2

SDS/2 is the only product with the built-in intelligence to automatically design connections using a 3D model with a multitude of options for beams, columns, bracing and joists. A full station of SDS/2 gives you the power to get the job done.

Connections are designed based on parameters that you define for each job. Designate material, edge distance, cope criteria and other connection specifications, and SDS/2 will automatically generate connections that meet your requirements.

Then you can model all the minor pieces of steel — ladders, handrails, stairs, hoppers, bins, checkered plates, etc. — with SDS/2’s parametric modeling feature. You’ll save a phenomenal amount of time by creating a 3D model with every piece of material, bolt and hole in the right place.

When the model is complete, SDS/2’s automatic detailing feature creates a comprehensive set of 2D drawings, unlike what other software systems generate. Plus, the drawings require few modifications, because you create adaptive detailing rules that work in conjunction with the system’s automated detailing routines.

SDS/2 also automatically creates all of the major member details, submaterial details and erection views, another time-saving feature. And because these 2D drawings are taken from the model, the erection crew always gets an accurate fit in the field.
DS/2 is more than the software you need today or tomorrow. It’s a key building block for the future of your business.

For more than two decades, Design Data has diligently worked to make SDS/2 the best product on the market. By constantly updating SDS/2 with an array of new and creative solutions, Design Data remains at the forefront of innovation in the steel industry. New SDS/2 features, connections and enhancements are being developed every day.

Among many innovations, Design Data was the first software company to provide:

* Automatic connection design
* Detailing with a framing plan approach
* Multi-site capabilities with one model
* Multi-user capabilities with one model
* True 3D model for producing details
* Automated shop equipment support
* Capability to import engineering data into detailing system
* Job status tracking
* 3D model review
* Customizable drawing presentation

To keep up with the rapid and continual changes in technology, Design Data relies on every resource available, from industry literature to suggestions from the SDS/2 Users Group and our quarter century of experience in leading the industry. No other software company is more responsive to customer input.
