SolidWorks ® and SteelWorks ® Reasons for a Synergy
AMV STEELWORKS THE FIRST SolidWorks Solution for Steel Construction AMV STEELWORKS: a tool for steel fabrication and erection, totally integrated in SolidWorks
ADVANTAGES OF AN ADD-IN One Interface – multiple Applications Easy modeling, editing, management of steel components Easy learning Easy management of complex interdisciplinary projects JUST ONE ENVIRONMENT
SolidWorks and SteelWorks TOGETHER Reasons for a Synergy Main challenge: enhancing the capabilities of SolidWorks, with an optimized tool for steel structures Thus Reduced design times Dynamic & simultaneous teamwork Better results and profits
Steel Design with SteelWorks Points of Strength Structural steel and mechanical and architectural components; Management of full parametric models featuring mechanical and structural steel; Multiple users working on the same SolidWorks model; Model analysis and generation of drawings.
Steel Design Let’s make it FASTER From Here To Here Up to 4 times FASTER with SteelWorks LITE
Steel Design Let’s COMPARE With 1.Insert the plate using weldments 2.Create 2 planes for the stiffeners 3.Create the sketch for stiffeners 4.Extrude the first stiffener 5.Extrude the second stiffener 6.Create the Bolt sketch 7.Toolbox – insert bolt 8.Toolbox – insert 2 washers 9.Toolbox – insert nut 10.Make a pattern for the Bolts 11.Create holes
Steel Design Let’s COMPARE With 1.Insert End Plate 2.Insert 2 stiffeners 3.Create the bolt sketch 4.Insert the bolted connection LITE JUST 4 OPERATIONS TO PERFORM
Steel Design Reasons for a Synergy Up to 4 Times FASTER Model automatically organised into assemblies and parts Automatically managed Mates Automatic Bolt assembling Automatic hole insertion in REAL TIME
SolidWorks and SteelWorks Reasons for a Synergy MAKES SOLIDWORKS: STRONGER MORE POWERFUL MORE FLEXIBLE
SolidWorks and SteelWorks Reasons for a Synergy A STRONGER SOLIDWORKS: more competitive on the market: new scenarios in the steel industry; more appealing: a specific add-in at a low price.
SolidWorks and SteelWorks Reasons for a Synergy A MORE POWERFUL SOLIDWORKS: more functions and areas of application with no need to learn to use a new application; Guarantee to perform specific operations faster and reliably.
SolidWorks and SteelWorks Reasons for a Synergy A MORE FLEXIBLE SOLIDWORKS: Approach new customers or refine the approach to existing ones; Embrace a wider sector of the industry and satisfy specific needs.
