About Us

We Are SDS/2

Creating the Best Steel
Detailing Software Since 1981

SDS/2 continues to lead the way in adapting to new technology, as evidenced by our proactive stance to make SDS/2 the leading detailing and fabrication software by importing and exporting model data to and from other software products. 

Our history of leadership and innovative features is unsurpassed by any competitor, providing a clear-cut advantage for SDS/2 users. Proof of this is found in SDS/2's involvement in the steel industry. We share a leadership position with the American Institute of Steel Construction (AISC), working on the development of integration of models and model data with CIS/2. Also, SDS/2 was the first product to interface with automated shop equipment, design connections inside the 3D model, and interface with plant design systems, among many other features. 

SDS/2 continues to lead the way in adapting to new technology, as evidenced by our proactive stance to make SDS/2 the leading BIM software by importing and exporting model data to and from other software products.

In 2016, SDS/2 became a part of the Nemetschek Group, joining 15 other strong brands providing solutions for the entire lifecycle of buildings and infrastructure projects – from the design and visualization of a building through the actual building process to building management.  The unique structure of the Nemetschek Group enables the brands to operate in an entrepreneurial way, to drive innovation and to work closely with their 4.0 million customers worldwide 

The future continues to provide endless possibilities for SDS/2 and the steel industry. The company maintains a strong vision for the direction of SDS/2 and an unyielding commitment to technological innovation.
