Design Data Contributes to Industry GrowthJuly 15, 2008 At the recent NASCC conference in Nashville, Design Data's influence in the structural steel industry was on display – not just inside the convention center, but on the city's skyline as well. From the Schermerhorn Symphony Center to the Country Music Hall of Fame, the company's imprint was as prominent as the spire on the Sommet Center – which was also detailed on SDS/2.
Twenty-seven years ago, in an era where MTV was in its infancy and fabrication details were being hand drawn, Design Data was preparing to revolutionize the detailing industry. When Jim Dager founded the company in 1981, he started programming SDS, which was the first automated steel detailing product in the industry.
What evolved from that first simple beam, column and connection software is a revolutionary 3D information management system with the intelligence to automatically design connections and the flexibility to serve as the information center of the project.
