SDS/2 Estimodeling creates realistic, code-based connections automatically for a more accurate bid.
Immediately identify areas that might impact costs, like web doublers or other items that could increase shop labor.
Cost comparisons for connection design alternatives can be done in seconds, enabling you to confidently put your best bid forward.
Jump start estimates by importing design models to SDS/2 Estimodeling
Get immediate feedback on material costs, or better yet perform cost comparisons on the model
Pre-identify questions and RFIs and save your team time after you win the bid
Trace design drawings to quickly input 3D models during the bid phase
Search the model for high cost materials and labor items—SDS/2 connection design can even help suggest lower cost alternatives
Once you’ve got a model, you can send the data to your MRP/MIS software for traditional estimating methods
Connections are not an extra step or a 3rd party cost—they’re automatic and included
Optimize connection material design for fabrication to acheive more efficient ordering and inventory management
Optimize the design of connections to save costs on both shop and field labor, plus materials and bolts
