With SolidSteel parametric for Siemens NX, structural steel design constructions can be built up much faster and more efficient. Therefore many user friendly functions are available. All of these functions have been modified for the typical working methods in steelwork.
This software solution can be used independent from any branch. Wether you use it for classic structural engineering or constructions in plant and mechanical engineering. Using the powerful construction functions of SolidSteel parametric, there are no limits for your ideas.
In the same way as we did for the other versions it was important for the development of SolidSteel parametric for Siemens NX to integrate the system as deep as possible into the operating CAD system.
By customizing dialogs, input masks and menus, the look & feel of Siemens NX could be adopted. Most times users will not even notice, that they are working with a third party solution. So for new users, its very easy to learn SolidSteel parametric and do productive work
„SolidSteel parametric is no external solution. Its integrated into Siemens NX by 100%.“ - Thats not just more comfort, it makes work more efficient without any data exchange issues. With SolidSteel parametric you are working with native Siemens NX files.
Using the SolidSteel parametric Connect module, there are many typical steel connections available by default. End plates, base plates, ribs, gusset plates or even whole frame corners will be created and inserted to the construction with only a few clicks.
Depending on the functions, the geometrical values will be calculated from the construction parameters, inserted manually or taken from provided libraries like e.g. DAST. Of cause, these libraries can be extended by the user. For example, SolidSteel parametric will suggest fitting end plates immediately after selecting a profile.
For complex connection types like frame corners, many different parts will be generated and adjusted by one function. Of cause functions like that are included in SolidSteel parametric and all possibilities of the software, like the changes of the construction, are still available.
SolidSteel parametric offers the possibility to create profiles and connections in a 3D model – fast and easy. Furthermore, the program administrates the whole steel construction as a logically associated unit.
The logical connection of all elements enables SolidSteel parametric to adjust the whole construction to new circumstances. If, for example, the corner point of a construction is lifted by 500 mm, it changes only the geometrical position of a connection point. The existing connections remain. SolidSteel parametric can update the 3D model automatically. Profiles are extended or shortened, the position in the room and final changes like diagonal cuts are adjusted. Ribs and head plates are adjusted to new profile sizes, the angle of inclination and the form of gusset plates will be changed, too. Even large construction groups as frame corners follow the new geometrical specifications automatically.
