Design Automation for Structural Steel

Design Automation – Structural Steel Products

Hello everyone. This is just a quick post to link to a new series of videos I am creating as a proof of concept of the use of configurators for the design automation of structural steel products. I will be posting several more videos in this series, and will post updates here when that happens. The configurator in this model is of a structural steel Greenhouse, but the same modeling and code methodology would apply to similar products such as:

  • Ladders
  • Scaffolding
  • Fences
  • Power Transmission ‘Towers
  • Pole Buildings
  • Fire Escapes
  • Stairways
  • Bridges
  • Docks
  • And a boatload more!

This video shows the very early stage of a configurator where the first main element is being¬†run through tests of it’s min/max limits with their fail-safes in place to see if they are working.¬†Other videos in this series will show model development, the BOM, cost pulling from an ERP system, and whatever else I have time to add. enjoy the video, and if you have questions or want to move ahead on your own design automation plan, contact us and well see what we can do to help.

Check back soon for the next installment. See you then.
