Alma is specialized in editing CAD/CAM software for automatic cutting, plate nesting and welding. Alma’s Act/Cut software integrates with Steel Projects PLM to provide an integrated plate nesting solution.
Autodesk’s Advance Steel is a 3D detailing software built on the familiar AutoCAD platform and designed specifically for steel detailers and fabricators. Advance Steel and Steel Projects have together developed and tested an advanced IFC export specifically designed for steel fabrication which enables intelligent data to be shared with Steel Projects PLM. In addition, Autodesk and Steel Projects are also working toward sharing production progress using the industry standard .psr format.
Design Data’s SDS2 is a 3D detailing software designed specifically for steel detailers and fabricators. SDS2 can also automatically design connections inside the 3D model. SDS2 has developed specific export links for sharing data with Steel Projects PLM and are also working together to develop and test an advanced IFC export specifically designed for steel fabrication which enables intelligent data to be shared with Steel Projects PLM.
Tekla PowerFab brings together Tekla Structures and Tekla EPM (formerly FabSuite) software. Thanks to the historic partnership built with Tekla and Ficep for more than two decades, we have developed a common global solution allowing manufacturers to manage the entire production process as well as the complete administrative management of the projects.
