Whether you’re working for a shop or at a detailing company, meeting the needs of the fabricator are critical to your success.  

A good detailing operation with a fast, accurate software can drive shop optimization, from production timelines to material and labor costs.  

That’s why the automated and time-saving processes in SDS2 are powered by fabrication preferences. Our design engine emulates the practical thought processes of detailers, fabricators, and even erectors in the field.  

SDS2 is the most intelligent and automated—in short, the best—steel connection design software on the market today. 

But what makes our software intelligent? How does our automation work? And, most importantly, what does that mean for you? Because that’s what really matters here—your user experience, your results, and your decision. 


Introducing the SDS2 Toolbox, where you can quickly find and install the latest tools and partner integrations to elevate your detailing productivity.
What do steel detailers do? Structural steel detailers produce drawings that fabricators use in the manufacture and construction of steel structures. They provide a critical link between design and reality in the lifecycle of a construction project.
At SDS2 we are continuously learning from our customers and developing new tools and features to help you succeed. The SDS2 2020 update introduced several new tools to improve your user experience, boost your productivity, and reduce the potential for errors in your workflow.
