SDS/2 Software Solutions for
SDS/2 software increases efficiency and prevents the duplication of work in the grating industry. Grating companies take advantage of the 3D model to see potential clashes in the model. The steel detailer’s SDS/2 model is a great starting point for companies laying out grating. Sharing the model eliminates the time spent duplicating the structural plans and increases the accuracy of the grating layout. Utilizing the same SDS/2 model for both detailing and grating layout helps grating manufacturers fit into the BIM workflow, and will propel these leading companies into the future. A combination of SDS/2 software solutions have shown to improve the grating detailing process at several different levels of integration.
SDS/2 Detailing allows grating detailers to input grating into their model, as required for complete BIM projects. The drafting portion of the software removes the time spent recreating an erection view in other CAD programs for grating layout by helping grating detailers generate views as necessary.
